What to Expect from the Housing Market in 2018
The 2018 real estate market is a tight seller’s market and the 63.9% home-ownership rate will continue in a slight upward trend. Here’s what you should know about the housing market in 2018.
Buyers in 2018 should remain diligent and look out for new properties on the market, have financing in order, and work with attentive real estate agents who will help make an appealing offer on a house as there will more than likely be multiple offers.
Sellers in 2018 should remain enthusiastic about selling their property as home prices have continued to rise in recent years. The lack of new inventory spells opportunity for those who choose to sell, but will keep many would-be first-time buyers from jumping into homeownership due to stiff competition.
