Housing Outlook for 2014: Steady Sales and Higher Prices

Want to get an idea where the real estate market is headed in 2014? Check out this recent article (Housing Outlook for 2014: Steady Sales and Higher Prices) which discusses the speculations of NAR®’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun who forecasts existing home sales to hold fairly even in 2014 and the median sale price of homes to increase nearly 6% with inventory shortages being felt again this year.

Meanwhile, the Kiplinger Letter, in its annual economic forecast issue, calls for a 4% increase in existing home sales. The publication says new home sales are likely to jump about 16% next year after soaring 36% in 2013 and 20% in 2012.

That’s great news for sellers again this year and means that buyers may breathe a little easier in the search for a home with a slight increase in inventory.

If you have questions about the market and are considering a move in the new year, give me a call today to discuss your options!
