Five Trends to Watch in Real Estate Nationally in 2016

Housing Recovery


As we head towards 2016 and the coming New Year, there are five real estate trends to watch for on a national level, as we approach the new year, according to a recent article on The first trend is that coming off this year (2015), which saw the best year in housing nationwide since 2007, the housing market is expected to return to a more normal type of market, with healthy growth in sales and home prices, leading to a more balanced market nationally in both categories. Second, younger generations have now entered the real estate market as of this year, and are projected to continue getting into the market as potential buyers and sellers in 2016, as well, with improving economic conditions nationally. Third, home builders will focusing more on affordable home points, in order to capitalize on the potential growth in new home sales and single-family construction expected in 2016. Fourth, rising mortgage rates, which have been expected for some time, will affect higher cost markets the most initially, but is largely expected to balance itself out on the whole. Finally, it is expected that it will be better to buy, rather than rent, a home in the coming year, as well. Very interesting trends nationally, to be sure, and we will have to wait and see what it could all mean in the New Year for both the local and national housing markets.
