Typically, I would expect prices to get to a point where there aren't enough takers at which point inventory will increase and either prices will stay flat or even decrease.

It really depends on the particular marketplace.  Some areas in Santa Barbara County have high inventory and a low demand, and vice versa.  To generalize even in our small town is wrong, because it depends on so many factors.

Some areas depend on the economy of China for instance, which as you know is not so golden at the moment...A

Our prices have gone up very modestly and inventory has remained at 7 months plus for the last couple of years. I do not foresee a change from this and we consider this to be a stable market.

The median price for an apartment in Manhattan reached $1.1M in 4Q-2015. It's highest level ever recorded. Inventory is up 14% (finally) from a year ago but still undersupplied.

Bidding wars, high prices, higher and higher, buyers frustrated but with more and more iventory coming perhaps a correction is due. Maybe another crash. Sooner or later. It's already slowing at the $10M+ ultra luxury sector of the market. Not enough billionaires for all the new luxury construction. Builders may start cutting up 7,000 sf apartments that are not selling for $50M into several smaller units.

(I hope what I just heard on the news about the China stock market crashing and closing down won't be too bad here tomorrow) Who knows? Maybe it will help US real estate as safe haven for Chinese investors.

But then the cycle begins again and prices start going up then go even higher than the last cycle.

10 years from now people maybe saying "I'm sorry I didn't buy that 1 bedroom condo when it was only $1.1 million back in 2015. :-)

In my area, I think the market will continue to slowly rise.  Inventory has tightened, and depending on weather, spring sales should take off in March.

 In High End Coastal Orange County we have not hit 2007 prices yet. Sellers list high and take off market. Condos and entry level are 90% of 2007 market prices in South Orange County and 95% in North Orange County. Properties under $590000. sell with multiple offers. (My company owned by a builder so no comment about the brand BUT...) Builders in Orange County are slapping up $800000- $1,200,000 houses like there is no tomorrow. They are all hunting for infill lots to build new. Buyers are out on weekends and getting preapproved in record numbers. What will make them put their money down and close?? - new president? Janet Yellen saying the sky is falling or just time to move up?

The Tampa Bay area has the exceptional benefit of a lot of out of area, out of state, out of country buyers. Most of the big water view real estate is owned by citizens of other countries.

I expect to see a slow Spring, reduced closings, then they will pull the trigger for an exceptional 3 and 4th quarter. Then the expected babble from the media and gurus.

Jeff - The market always fluctuates, and if it gets too extreme in one way, it usually starts working its way back the opposite direction. Sometimes it is a slow transition, and other times, like back in 2006-07, the bubble burst.

First:  It varies by location and price range within that area.

It is still a seller's market in most of the areas I cover but not as extreme.  

We are starting to see price reductions and more inventory is some areas.

And we are still seeing multiple offers and sale prices over list.
