Volume and price are inversely related – the flip sides of one coin. Classically, the lower the price, the higher the volume and vice versa. Florida homebuilding turned this relationship on its head with accelerating prices and volumes from 2001-2005 before collapsing volumes and declining prices ever since.
The dramatic reversal of the home building industry raised concerns of a far reaching domino effect in which the entire US economy weakened into recession.
