Why Pricing Your House Right Is Essential

In today’s real estate market, setting the right price for your house is one of the most valuable things you can do.
According to the U.S. Economic Outlook by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), existing home prices nationwide are forecasted to increase 4.7% in 2020 and 4.1% in 2021. This means experts anticipate home values will continue climbing into next year. Today, low inventory is largely keeping prices from depreciating. Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at realtor.com, notes:

“Looking at the sheer number of buyers, low mortgage rates, and limited sellers, the strength of home prices–which are now growing at the highest pace since January 2018–makes sense.”

Where Are Home Values Headed Over the Next 12 Months?

As shelter-in-place orders were implemented earlier this year, many questioned what the shutdown would mean to the real estate market. Specifically, there was concern about home values. After years of rising home prices, would 2020 be the year this appreciation trend would come to a screeching halt? Even worse, would home values begin to depreciate?
Original forecasts modeled this uncertainty, and they ranged anywhere from home values gaining 3% (Zelman & Associates) to home values depreciating by more than 6% (CoreLogic).
However, as the year unfolded, it became clear that there would be little negative impact on the housing market. As Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American, recently revealed:

“The only major industry to display immunity to the economic impacts of the coronavirus is the housing market.”

Have prices continued to appreciate so far this year?

MID YEAR REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE: CHARTS & GRAPHS

Mid Year Market Update

2020 has most certainly been one for the books!
Covid-19, Protests, Riots, Kobe Bryant, No Olympics, Distance Learning,
Social Distancing, Murder Hornets, Locusts, SpaceX, Australia Burning,
Royals Leaving Royalty, Zoom, and let's not forget, Tiger King.

We've made it past the half-way marker!
Although this year has brought many challenges, these defining moments
have been shaping our economy in a very surprising way.

Home Sales have actually surpassed pre-Covid numbers week over week since May. Here's a look at the past weeks numbers for San Luis Obispo County, informational stats from C ...
