Let me put some thought into this.

"In some way?" Yes, making money through stock investments, a robust 401K, media blabbing about strong economy DOES create consumer confidence. The resulting reduced anxiety enables folks to spend money.

Many highly profitable stock investments include REITs.

However, when people need a roof to sleep under, they will make the sacrifice required. Those who have been in business over 15 years have personal experience with a crashed market. We find a way.

In a minor way. The market is controlled by automated computer buying and selling programs none of us regular folk can control. There will be bumps, there will be sharp increases and sharp decreases. The days news, politics and such all will make it go one way or the other. In the end it stays steady

Yes, just like the leg bone is connected to the hip bone.  In my experience, when the market becomes too volatile and losses are happening, people retreat into the less sexy but more stable real estate market.  When we're in a bull market and constantly hitting new highs, the quick profit of the market is alluring to the larger but much longer play of the real estate market.

I think a person's investments are tied to the real estate market to a certain extent.  If their investments are experiencing losses, I believe they are less likely to purchase real estate, unless the money is stupid money.

Only the techies who use the RSU as downpayment. That is why those 20 some year old come up with downpayment for 1-2 mil entry level homes.

The time it impact home pricing lags about 6-9 months.

Yes it is. Things like the 10 year treasury, and consumer confidence, play a big part of the real estate market. Interest rates and the gains or losses in the stock market affect when and if people are buying and investing in real estate
