Home Prices Are Expected To Climb Moderately  Home prices are forecasted to rise at a more normal pace. The graph below shows the latest forecasts from seven of the most trusted sources in the industry: 
    The reason for continued appreciation? The supply of homes for sale. Jessica Lautz, Deputy Chief Economist at the National Association of Realtors (NAR), explains: 
“One thing that seems pretty solid is that home prices are going to continue to go up because we don’t have housing inventory.”    While inventory is up compared to the last few years, it’s still low overall. And because…

If you’ve been looking for a home at the high end of your market but haven’t found the right one, you may have put your search on hold. But according to recent data, now may be the time to jump back in. Here’s why. 

There Are More Luxury Homes To Choose From 
What’s considered the top-end of the market, or a luxury home, will always vary by location. But generally speaking, their homes are valued in the top 5% of any market. According to a recent report from the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, the selection of luxury homes is increasing (see graph below): 


As the graph shows, more single-family luxury homes are available now than a year ago. There are even more than there were just a month ago. This increase means you should have a

Thinking about selling your house? If you are, you might be weighing factors like today’s mortgage rates and your own changing needs to figure out your next move. 

Here’s something else to consider. According to the latest home purchase sentiment index (HPSI) from Fannie Mae, the percent of respondents who say it’s a good time to sell is on the rise (see graph below): 

Why are sellers feeling so optimistic? 

One reason why is because right now is traditionally the best time of year to sell a house. A recent article from Bankrate says: 

“Late spring and early summer are generally considered the best times to sell a house. . .. While today’s rates are relatively high, low inventory is keeping sellers in the

Are you thinking about moving? If so, now may be the perfect time to start the process. Experts say the best week to list your house is just around the corner.

A recent Realtor.com study looked at housing market trends over the past several years (except for 2020, since it was an unusual year) and found the best week to put your house on the market this year is April 14-20:
“Every year, one week stands out from the rest as the perfect time to be a home seller. This year, the week of April 14–20 is the best time to sell—that is, if sellers want to see lots of interest in their homes, sell quickly, and pocket some extra cash, according to Realtor.com® data.”

But when the Fed met last week, a cut didn't happen — at least, not yet.

The Fed considered many factors in its recent decision, and most of them are complex. But you don't need to be bogged down by those finer details. What you want is the answer to this question: Does that mean mortgage rates aren't going to fall? Here's what you need to know.

Odeta Kushi, Deputy Chief Economist, First American: 

“. . . it seems our general expectation for the spring is that we will see a pickup in inventory. In fact, that already seems to be happening. But it won’t necessarily be enough to satiate demand.” 

Lisa Sturtevant, Chief Economist, Bright MLS: 

“There is still strong demand, as the large millennial population remains in the prime first-time homebuying range.”
