It’s tough keeping up-to-date with your market. All those sales reports, data, and productivity reports are pouring in. These reports get you an immediate insight into your market – who are the companies making more profit? Or using more sales staff? Or which market is growing fastest in terms of property investment? Or are property prices falling in Tenerife?
These indicators are valuable; they tell you what’s going on in demand and growth. What counts is how you compare to the competition in these growth areas. In this article, we’ll discuss the three key indicators of the property market.

What s a Market Indicator?
A market indicator is a statistic that measures the state of a market or economy. Market indicators determine the health and strength of an economy or market. They also predict future growth or lack thereof. To identify what factors affect housing prices, look at market indicators that measure changes in supply and demand.
Housing Market Price
The housing market price is a critical indicator of the health of a local economy. When housing prices rise, people buy homes in that area and move there.
When housing prices drop, people sell their homes and move away. The housing market can tell us a lot about what’s happening in an economy: If you want to know if an area is growing or shrinking, look at its housing market!
For example, the average price of a home in the US is $385,800. That’s up 0.3% from last year, which was $384,500.
Interest rates are an essential indicator because they affect almost every aspect of our lives. Interest rates impact every expenditure, from mortgages to car loans to credit card debt.
In 2023, the interest rate is predicted to go up to 3.6%, which could push the average to 6.48%. For example, if the bank gives you a loan of $2 million, you will pay $4,200 more.
Consumers need more money to repay their loans and other debts. The result is an increase in the cost of borrowing money, which hurts consumer spending, leading to an overall decrease in economic growth.
Active inventory is the number of homes actively on the market. This number is significant because it gives us an idea of how many homes are available at any time. Homes listed as active but not yet sold are still in the inventory; we can use this number to get a sense of how much supply there is for buyers looking for a home.
If the active inventory is low, there aren’t many homes available, leading to increased competition among buyers and higher prices for those homes, and in turn, few houses will be bought. If the active inventory is high, there will be less competition and lower prices.
What’s the Importance of Stock Trend Indicators?
A stock trend indicator helps traders and investors predict the future direction of a stock price. Trend indicators are useful in helping you determine when you should buy or sell a stock.
There are different trend indicators, but they all have one thing in common: they all use historical data to predict the future.
The formula calculates how the stock will continue in the same direction and produces a percentage. For example, if an indicator says you should buy, it means that over time, there is a high probability that the price will go up. If it says sell, there is a high probability that the price will go down.
What’s the Importance of Market Breadth Indicator?
Market breadth indicators show how well the stock market is performing. They include the number of stocks trading higher, lower, or unchanged; how many stocks are in uptrends and downtrends; and how many new highs and new lows there were.
They’re essential because they give us a sense of what’s happening with the market growing or shrinking or becoming more or less volatile. For example, the market is uptrend if there are more than 50 active stocks on a given day. The market is downtrend if there are less than 50 active stocks.
The housing market is a cyclical business, and the current state of the economy will determine where it goes in the coming years. In addition to regulating interest rates and employment, the most important factor appears to be confidence levels. If confidence begins to creep up and people begin spending more freely, we may see an uptick in housing prices. But if confidence declines further or stays low, prices will likely stay stubbornly flat.
