NAR's 2018 Housing and Economic Forecast

NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun presented his 2018 economic and housing forecast this morning here at the 2017 Realtors® Conference and Expo in Chicago.

Yun expects existing-home sales to rise 3.7 percent next year. However, there are some caveats. Low supply could continue to suppress sales, especially to first-time buyers, and the passage of a tax bill that disincentives homeownership could handcuff what should be stronger activity.
