Next 5 Years – Home Values

Home-Price-Expectation-275Today, many real estate conversations center on housing prices and where they may be headed.  That is why we like the Home Price Expectation Survey.  Every quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists about where prices are headed over the next five years.  Then they average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.

The results of their latest survey:

  • Home values will appreciate by 4.3% in 2014
  • The average annual appreciation will be 4.2% over the next 5 years
  • The cumulative appreciation will be 28% by 2018
  • Even the experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey still are projecting a cumulative appreciation of over 16.8% by 2018.

Individual opinions make headlines.  We believe the survey is a fairer depiction of future values.  What do you think?
