Let's define a market as a geographical area, along with one’s desired home features, in which one is looking to purchase a home. A downturn in a market can be defined as a period of consistent growth of closed sale prices followed by a period of consistent decline to the mean of closed sale prices for the past months.

  •  A recent downturn - 3-6 months

  • A downturn - 6-12 months

  • Yearly downturn - 12 months or more

 The period of a downturn in a market is significant, as it determines the boundary in which a home is deemed to be in an upward, or downward market.
