Home Values Going Up KCM

“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 one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & 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.”

———————————————————————————————————————————–In addition to the info from Pulsenomics, we also know the government has indicated it likely that interest rates will rise. In fact, we have seen the FHLMC 30 year rate rise already from 3.84% in May to 4% in June and 4.09% in July. In light of the urgency to buy now, we are holding a special MILLENNIAL EDITION of our “Kiss Your Landlord Goodbye” Seminar.
