Economists' Outlook

Housing stats and analysis from NAR's research experts.

Home Prices Projected to Increase By 3 Percent in Forthcoming Year

Recently released research data project rising residential prices in 2013. The October 2012 Economic Survey by the Wall Street Journal panel of economists forecasted home prices as increasing at an annual rate of 3.25 percent in the forthcoming year. A similar National Association of Business Economists survey projected a 2.8 percent increase in home prices by the end of 2013.

Based on information from the latest Realtors Confidence Index, REALTORS® are projecting a 3 percent increase in home prices in the forthcoming year. Both practitioners and economists are in good agreement on this one: prices are projected to increase.
