In other words, I am asking whether higher interest rates cause real estate prices to be lower or higher, and if a generalization can be made.

interest rates are the cost to borrow money, so as rates go up ,affordability goes down. when a market is slow for sellers sometimes an increase in rates will inspire a buyer on the sideline to commit so they arent priced out of market. but too many rises now cause the seller to have to decide if they should lower thier price to entice buyers. if they cannot afford to lower their bottom line then they may decide to sell later when the market may favor a higher price . in a mkt where rates are going down, there is more opportunity to buy and sell,but people sometimes wait for a bottom in the mkts prices causing the seller another decision to lower price., thats when inventory on mkt becomes a driver in decision, if you wait you can lose alot of opportunities to others and inventory becomes picked over and low.
