FOR SELLERS: Economists predict that the uptick in housing starts, coupled with a moderate increase in mortgage rates, will help slow the run-up in home prices next year. Freddie Mac forecasts a 4.9 percent increase in home prices in 2018, lower than the 6.3 percent growth seen so far this year. Morgage rates are also up from near-record lows in 2016, prompting predictions that refinancings will fall to 25 percent of mortgage activity in 2018—the lowest share since 1990, according to Fannie Mae. There is no crystal ball when it comes to Real Estate. If you are thinking about selling your home, contact me to discuss the best time to sell.

FOR BUYERS: Although desirous buyers are out on an increasing number of showings, there remains a limited number of desirable listings. And although mortgage rates have remained enticingly low, home prices have reached unaffordable levels for many new entrants into the housing pool at exactly the same time that established owners are proving to be less interested in moving. New Listings increased 8.7 percent for Single Family homes and 13.9 percent for Condominium homes. Read More about the current market
