CRITIC REVIEWS

Credible
July 15, 2019
While the source is credible the article is a bit alarmist and speculative. The informational depth is shallow and no substantive conclusions can be drawn from the data referenced.

Sensational

While a number of reasonable sources were cited, I don’t see the support for the hyperbole of the headlines.

Financial Incentive

The building of new homes has slowed, this article tries to spin that information as a positive sign for the realestate market. Realtor.com is an industry site that's bias is towards pumping the market.

Well Sourced

Seems to be well sourced by industry, critical analysis would require independent experts to review the data. I do not feel that gut reactions by individuals reviewing the article is of very much merit.

Great Context
July 10, 2019
While I believe the information presented in the article is true, I felt the context of listing prices and inventory, as well as reasons for owners not to list homes, didnt easily make clear that these would cause the same price hikes as back in 2017 and 2018... unless you were another real estate agent perhaps that understood a 1-2% difference in inventory would cause such a hike. Also, there was no link to the realtor.com report that this article seems to be referencing.
