Housing Market Forecast

The housing market is at a turning point, and if you’re thinking of buying a home, that may leave you wondering: is it the right time to make a move? Let’s turn to the experts for what the future is projected to hold.

Experts Project Mortgage Rates Will Stabilize

This year, mortgage rates have climbed over 2% due to the Federal Reserve’s response
to inflation. While mortgage rates continue to fluctuate, experts project they’ll start to
stabilize in the months ahead, hovering in the low 5% range initially, and then possibly
dipping into the high 4% range later next year. That could bring some welcome relief if
you’re ready to buy a home (see chart):

Home Price Forecasts Call for Ongoing Appreciation

In 2021, home prices appreciated rapidly because there were far more people looking
to make a purchase than there were homes available for sale. CoreLogic helps explain
how unusual last year’s price gains were:

“Price appreciation averaged 15% for the full year of 2021, up from the 2020 full year average of 6%.”

This year, home price appreciation is slowing (or decelerating) from the feverish pace
the market saw during the pandemic. According to the latest forecasts, experts say
nationwide, prices will still appreciate by roughly 11.3% in 2022 (see graph):
