Where Are Home Prices Headed Over the Next 5 Years?

    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 they believe 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 4.5% over the course of 2016, 3.6% in 2017 and about 3.2% in the next two years, and finally 2.9% in 2020 (as shown below). That means the average annual appreciation will be 3.5% over the next 5 years.Projected-Prices-STM-1024x768

    The prediction for cumulative appreciation increased slightly from 24.7% to 26.3% by 2020. The experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey are still projecting a cumulative appreciation of 11.1%.Cumulative-Prices-STM-1024x768

    Bottom Line

    Individual opinions make headlines. We believe the survey is a fairer depiction of future values.
