This marks a 5.78% quarterly increase following three consecutive quarters of decline, primarily driven by low inventory in the housing market. 

Despite a Q2 increase, the market value of owner-occupied real estate experienced a slight 0.14% decrease compared with the previous year, marking two consecutive quarters of year-over-year declines, the first back-to-back quarterly decreases since Q2 2012, the National Association of Home Builders' Eye on Housing reports. 

Real estate secured liabilities of households’ balance sheets, i.e., mortgages, home equity loans, and HELOCs, increased over the second quarter from $12.76 trillion to $12.85 trillion, a 0.71% quarterly increase.
