Experts Predict Future Increases for Housing Prices

Each quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a “… dstinguished panel of over 100 economists, investment strategists, and housing market analysts regarding their 5-year expectations for future home prices in the United States.”

Here are the results of their latest survey about price appreciation/depreciation expected over the next five years:

2012:   -.4%

2013:   +1.3%

2014:   +2.6%

2015:   +3.2%

2016:   +3.5%

    Real estate investment is really the best because it is a form of passive income. The only downside is that you need a lot of startup capital for it. ,.,,;

    1. Actually it depends… there still are FHA loans at 3.5% if the property is going to be your residence and live in it for some time. There are also some zero down loans still offered through a couple of government programs… depends on where you are and what your income level is. Not too much about real estate is simple anymore, and the loan process is no exception. But, my sincere advice after 25+ years of dealing with rental property is that if there is any way for you to get started, now is the time. The current low interest rates enable people to qualify for more home… and this situation won’t last unfortunately. It’s the one investment option that gives you ‘some’ measure of control over what happens… Good luck and let me know!

    1. I agree so much! I am working almost exclusively with investors these days. For me it’s a red flag that the housing market is poised for a strong come-back and investors know it.
