We are often asked where we think home prices are headed over the next year.
Recently, several national groups have published reports and given their predictions about the level of appreciation we can expect by the end of 2018 and into 2019:
Urban Land Institute: Survey respondents expect home prices to rise an average of 5.3 % in 2018 and 4.3 % in 2019, both above the 20-year average annual growth rate of 4.0 percent.
Home Price Expectation Survey: 4.1% in 2018
Clear Capital: Looking back, Year-over-year gains from mid-year 2017 to mid-year 2018 was 7%.
Forbes: Home price appreciation will slow to 2% over 2018
All five publishers are projecting a rise in home values through 2018 and 2019. Many project that home appreciation will slow down a bit compare to the last five years. But keep in mind, no one correctly predicted the increases we’ve seen in the last five years, especially the large jump in 2013.
Any increases are positive new to homeowners and would-be homeowners in Frederick and surrounding areas in Maryland. Remember, national statistics don’t really show us what’s happening locally.
