Psychological Stages of a RE Bubble Market

In light of the latest Case Shiller data was out this morning, I wanted to draw your attention to a fascinating chart from the Irvine Housing Blog.

Its a Real Estate focused variant of the market cycle/psychological chart we have run in the past. I have annotated it in red, to show where we are.

Note what they call a bear rally is actually just the result of government programs, mortgage mods, HAMP, etc.

Real Estate Cycle of Sentiment

Irvine Housing Blog interprets the chart as “a sign that people are clinging to the hope of a real estate recovery. We are not yet at the bottom.”
