Real Estate Market Trends

If you're like a lot of other consumers, trite slogans and marketing come- ons aren't convincing. Especially when it comes to the most expensive investment you may ever make; numbers are far pithier.


Think about it -- which of these is of more value to you: “Now is the best time to buy or sell a house!” or “Real Estate Market Report for Yourtown, Yourstate?”


Not only is this section of ActiveRain chock full of up-to-date real estate market reports but market statistics and market trends as well. Best of all, they're written in plain English by the experts – those that actually work in these markets on a daily basis.

Are Home Prices Going to Drop?It’s no secret that inflation has improved over the past couple of months, but it has edged up a little with the rising cost of goods and transportation. The Federal Reserve has indicated that interest rates could drop over the coming months. There is still a possibility of rate hikes, depending on what happens with inflation and other economic factors, but so far, the future looks hopeful. Lower rates would make it more affordable for people to buy a home.What does this mean for the price of homes? While home value appreciation is expected to slow down some, it isn’t yet clear if home prices will decrease. Given recent trends, some areas may experience a price increase of around 3-4%, while others may see a 1-2% drop. Prices are directly connected to housi...

Charles Stallions, a seasoned real estate broker with 28 years of experience, anticipates steady growth in the Pensacola housing market for 2024. Fueled by its picturesque coastline, thriving economy, and desirable lifestyle, housing demand continues to soar. However, potential growth may be moderated by factors like interest rate fluctuations and supply chain disruptions affecting construction. While home prices could experience gradual increases, affordability remains a concern for some prospective buyers. Nevertheless, the market is projected to maintain its strength, offering opportunities for both buyers and sellers in the upcoming year. Monitoring economic indicators and local developments will be essential for informed decision-making in this dynamic market.Stallions highlight th...
