whats happening to home prices?
One of the biggest questions people are asking right now is: what’s happening with home prices? 🤷🏽♂️
While there are headlines about ongoing price appreciation, at the same time, some sellers are reducing the price of their homes.
That can feel confusing and makes it more difficult to get a clear picture. Part of the challenge is that it can be hard to understand what experts are saying when the words they use sound similar. Below is a breakdown of those terms to help clarify what’s actually happening today.
📍Appreciation is when home prices increase.
📍Depreciation is when home prices decrease.
📍Deceleration is when home prices continue to appreciate, but at a slower or more moderate pace.
Experts agree that, nationally, what we’re seeing today is deceleration. That means home prices are appreciating, just not at the record-breaking pace they have over the past year.
In 2021, data from CoreLogic tells us home prices appreciated by an average of 15% nationwide. And earlier this year, that appreciation was upward of 20%. This year, experts forecast home prices will appreciate at a decelerated pace of around 10 to 11%, on average.
