      With prices headed to the moon and listings blinking in and out of existence like quantum particles, nobody seems to know exactly when this is going to stop.

      This seems to be happening globally, so interesting to have the driving factors explained a little!

      I have wanted a second home away from the city for years. I am deinitely waiting this one out. I have seen houses go up 33% over anything remotely logical. It's insane.

      Things to consider, for sure. I would certainly wait.
