We’re probably at peak housing. Here’s what that means.

In May, sales of previously-owned homes slumped, the second month in a row of declining sales. The National Association of Realtors, which tracks those sales, pointed to the same culprit it’s blamed for the past few years: not enough supply of homes to buy.

Shortly after the Realtors released their data, Regions Chief Economist Richard Moody wrote this in a research note: “Given that we see little reason to expect meaningful relief on the inventory front over coming quarters, we think it reasonable to conclude that we have passed the cyclical peak for existing home sales.”

Ten years after the financial crisis, the notion of a housing “peak” – which would naturally be followed by a downturn – seems downright spooky.
