This graph shows the forty-eight-year average for monthly home price movement. The last few years aren’t in here because nothing about those years were normal. I call those the unicorn 🦄 years. What this shows is what normally happens in the market.

Home price growth starts off slow at the beginning of the year, and really ramps up in the spring. That’s the peak homebuying season. Then, it cools off in the second half of the year.
