I think it all depends on interest rates. If the 30-year rate stays low, I think growth will slow, but prices will continue to rise. If (all) rates rise gradually (say, .5%/year or less), I think we'll see an extended stall, then see prices start rising again once rates stabilize. If (all) rates rise more quickly (say 1%/year or more), I think we'll see a substantial drop in prices.

Note that the rate curve is relatively flat right now. If 30-year rates go up, but 1-to-5-year rates don't, I wouldn't be surprised to see prices continue rising.
