Today, many real estate conversations center on housing prices and where they may be headed. That is why I 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 4.8% in 2014.
The cumulative appreciation will be 23.5% by 2019.
That means the average annual appreciation will be 3.6% over the next 5 years.
Even the experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey still are projecting a cumulative appreciation of 15.1% by 2019.
Individual opinions make headlines. This survey is a fairer depiction of future values.
