Some believe that the combined effects of the new tax code and rising mortgage rates will have an adverse impact on residential real estate prices in 2018. However, the clear majority of recently surveyedhousing experts believe that home values will continue to rise this year.

What is the Home Price Expectation Survey?

  • David Downs, Real Estate Finance Professor at VCU

  • Edward Pinto, Resident Fellow at American Enterprise Institute

  • Albert Saiz, Director at MIT Center for Real Estate

Where do these experts see home values headed in 2018?

Here is a breakdown of where they see home values twelve months from now:

  • 21.6% believe prices will appreciate by 6% or more

  • 71.6% believe prices will appreciate between 3 and 5.99%

  • 5.7% believe prices will appreciate between 0 and 2.99%

  • Only 1.1% believe prices will depreciate

Bottom Line
