Looking Ahead

If you are looking to buy, the underperforming areas may provide better values in the short term. Why? Markets in close proximity tend to have similar performance over time, even if there are wide discrepancies. If a neighbourhood has lagged over a short period, it will often make up for that performance with a bigger gain in coming periods.

Conversely, sellers in a hot area may benefit from a short term overperformance by selling before the local area cools in subsequent periods.

Nothing is assured, however. When supply is very constrained, as is the case in the current market, excessive demand can drive up prices at a frenetic pace in ways that befuddle even the most analytical minds.
