The article references expected “home price increases,” but median sales prices can increase even while actual same-home values remain flat. The confusion created among consumers by poorly worded headlines and articles can set the stage for unrealistic seller expectations on price and an assumption that their REALTORS® are at fault for homes that fail to sell because of poor pricing influenced by authoritative headlines that mislead homeowners into thinking their homes values are increasing with each passing minute.
