In 2021, we’ve seen incredible home price appreciation. According to the latest Home Price Index from CoreLogic, home values have skyrocketed by 18.1% compared to this time last year.

While everyone seems to have an opinion on whether the housing market is going to absolutely plummet or soar, let’s focus on what the experts and the data have to say.

Conor’s Conclusion

To compare the current market to 2008 and argue that there is going to be an equivalent collapse has no data to back it as of yet. While we have had an incredibly crazy seller’s market and are starting to see a little bit more inventory hit the market and some buyers leave the market due to multiple-offer fatigue, it’s only shifting slightly towards a more balanced market. We are still a far ways away from anything close to a “balanced” market where it neither distinctly favors the buyer or the seller.

My prediction is that we will continue to still see a very hot sellers’ market moving into 2022 and throughout 2022. Rising interest rates, increased inventory, and reduced buyer demand will slow the market down to more reasonable and sustainable growth.
