Will Home Prices Fall This Year? Here’s What Experts Say.

Many people are wondering: will home prices fall this year? Whether you’re a potential homebuyer, seller, or both, the answer to this question matters for you. Let’s break down what’s happening with home prices, where experts say they’re headed, and how this impacts your homeownership goals.
What’s Happening with Home Prices? 
Home prices have seen 121 consecutive months of year-over-year increases. CoreLogic says:

“Price appreciation averaged 15% for the full year of 2021, up from the 2020 full year average of 6%.”
So why are prices climbing so much? It’s because there are more buyers than there are homes for sale. This imbalance is expected to maintain that upward pressure on home prices because homes for sale are a hot commodity in today’s low-inventory housing market.
Where Do Experts Say Prices Will Go from Here?
Experts say the housing marke ...

Want To Get Top Dollar? Now's The Time To Sell

When you're selling something, you normally want to make the most money possible. This occurs when there is a high demand for an item with a limited supply. That time is now in the real estate market. If you're considering selling your home this year, there are two compelling reasons to do so now.
1. There is a lot of demand.
This Winter, according to a recent report in Inman News:
“Spring, the hottest time of year for homebuyers and sellers, has started early, according to economists. . . . ‘Home shopping season appears to already be in full swing!’”
They aren't the only ones who believe that purchasers are already out in force. ShowingTime's statistics provided last week backs up this claim. The ShowingTime Showing Index measures the average number of monthly buyer showings on active residential properties and is a very accurate predictor of current and future buyer demand patterns. The most active December in the last five years, according to the curre. ...

What is an iBuyer, and What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Selling Your Home to One?

When you've decided to sell your house, you'll need to figure out what form of transaction is ideal for you. You can engage a licensed real estate agent, go FSBO ("For Sale By Owner") and sell without an agent, or work with an iBuyer in general.

If you've never considered the third option, you're likely to have a lot of questions about what iBuyers are, how they work, and how they differ from the first two, which are part of the regular home-selling process. Don't be concerned. While we may not have all of the answers, we'll go through the basics of iBuyers and the benefits and drawbacks you should think about before deciding on this type of transaction.

An iBuyer (short for "instant buyer") is a real estate company that uses technology to acquire and sell the property. Instant refers to how quickly an iBuyer's algorithm calculates the AVM in order to make an offer on a house without seeing it, which could take minutes or days.
