Today, 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 100 economists, real estate experts, and investment and market strategists about where prices are headed over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.
The results of their latest survey
- Home values will appreciate by 4.1% in 2015.
- The cumulative appreciation will be 18.1% by 2019.
- That means the average annual appreciation will be 3.4% over the next 5 years.
- Even the experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey still are projecting a cumulative appreciation of 10.5% by 2019.
Individual opinions make headlines. We believe the survey is a fairer depiction of future values.
