A Warning About the Housing Market in Two Charts


Office or Jet

At the top of every major office building...

Or on board every private jet...

Sits a CEO, who knows exactly when to buy their company's stock.

With Insider Matrix, you can track their buys - in real time - and know precisely when they bought and exactly what price they paid. It's time you learned how to trade like an insider.

We held our monthly live video call with our VIPs last week. It's the highlight of our month.

It's our chance to sit down with our best subscribers and talk all things investing. It's a no-BS zone with a tight focus on what it takes to make money.

We started with a bit of a victory lap - a slide of some of the positions we recently sold...

Then we got into the meat of it. Interest rates... the dollar... crypto... and near the end of it all, a close look at real estate.

This is where things got interesting. We were touting facts that most hadn't heard before.

We started with this chart... very simple.

All-Transactions House Price Index

It shows the price of the average home based on a long-term index. It shows what we all know... prices have soared in recent years.

But it doesn't show something that most folks have assumed... that the bottom is falling out of the market.

That's not the case - at all.


Wow, Putin Just MAJORLY Screwed Up!

Vladimir Putin just made an idiotic mistake that will cost him dearly. It's going to drain trillions of dollars out of Russia... and potentially make some AMERICANS rich. What a bizarre story...


Price increases have slowed. Some markets have softened. But overall, prices have hardly budged.

We got evidence from Toll Brothers (TOL) last week that backed up that fact. Its sales were up 4% from last year. Its bottom line smashed expectations. And its average home sold for more than $900,000.

Shares surged higher.

Toll CEO Doug Yearley summed it up this way... "The most telling sign that these fundamentals are real and meaningful is the fact that rates didn't have to go back to 3.5% or even 5.5% for buyers to come back out."

It's good news for homebuilders... but terrible news for the inflation hawks. The rate hikes so far are having only a psychological effect - not a material effect.

But it gets worse. Look at this chart...

Home Ownership Affordability Monitor Index

It's an oddball set of data that most folks aren't familiar with. But it's incredibly useful. Using things like pay growth, mortgage rates (which surged once again last week) and, of course, home prices, it shows a measure of home affordability.

The news there is not good.


"An Army of Millionaires"

The BBC reports that Tesla's wildly profitable stock "created an army of millionaires."

These so-called Teslanaires include average people like Jason from Los Angeles, Bruce from Atlanta, Scott from New York and Basel from Pittsburgh...

Army Millionaires

But if you missed out on Tesla's incredible 17,000%-plus rise in the last decade...

Today, you have a second chance.

In fact, affordability is lower now than it was just before the big housing crash that sent the economy into free fall. It hasn't been this low since the 1980s, when double-digit mortgage rates made potential buyers weep.

It tells us that the folks who say the bottom is in for the housing market are either ignorant or, more likely, trying to sell you a piece of land.

Go back and look at that first chart again.

Prices didn't roll over all at once in 2008. It took nearly four years of housing market pain for prices to bottom out.

Clearly, today's prices have further to fall.

We're ready to take advantage. We'll be piling in... but not yet.

Patience is our greatest asset right now.

Be well,
