Real Estate Graph Regression toward the mean image

In the real estate graph above, the yellow dots are the actual number of homes sold each month, while the red, green and blue lines show the one year, five year, and ten year moving averages (respectively) of these sales averages.

The short term trend (one year moving average) has crossed both the medium and long term trends, while the medium term trend has crossed below the long-term trends. This is a classic picture of a market trending down. The one bit of good news from the graph above is that the short-term trend has started to move higher.

The most exciting future event that we are awaiting will be when the red line (short term trend) crosses over the green line (medium term trend), indicating the first bullish move in the market since 2006.
