There has been a steep drop off in sales this year. There have only been 752 SFH sales in the past 30 days. This is the lowest sales volume since?

In addition the sales/new listings ratio is at 20% the lowest since?

According to this calculator the buy vs. rent does not pay off even after 30 years:

In addition, rental yields are below 4%, which is lower than long term bonds (or even some high yield interest savings accounts) which are 100% safe.
