Home Demand Index | Historical Year-over-Year Comparison

Home demand fell in November, a decline largely attributable to the usual decrease in home shopping activity at the end of the year. The decline follows several months during which the Index moved in a narrow range in the Moderate category of demand. While most of the November decrease was driven by the typical year-end decline in homebuying activity, rising home prices continued to reduce affordability for many would-be buyers.
