Earlier predictions were that home prices would fall due to rising interest rates. Simply put, that hasn’t happened. While higher rates have slowed appreciation and added a few extra days on the market, home prices are actually climbing at about 4% this year, which is right in line with inflation. That main reason for this is simple supply and demand economics. Most of the country is sitting at historically low levels of inventory.

Sellers have been able to hold fairly strong this year even in the face of continued high interest rates and recession fears. The biggest contributing factor here has been the lack of inventory. People still have to buy due to job and lifestyle reasons such as growing families. With many people holding onto their homes…

When it comes to selling your house, you want three things: to sell it for the most money you can, to do it in a certain amount of time, and to do all of that with the fewest hassles.

Here is the link to my original 2023 PREDICTIONS

In early January we made our top 10 real estate predictions for 2023. So now, with the year a little more than half over, we are going to review and revise that same forecast and see where we actually are.

Original prediction: Sales prices will fall in 2023.
