Buying or Selling a Home

National Real Estate Snapshot

Rising interest rates and continuing tight underwriting could dampen sales as the year winds down. Still, 2013 sales will be up significantly from 2012. Appreciation remains robust, largely because of tight inventories. Interest rate concerns are reducing practitioner confidence. One bright spot: pent-up buyer demand by young households. As adults under 35 start to move out of their parents’ homes, home sales stand to benefit. All trend lines are from August 2012 to August 2013.
