Nationwide Price Forecast to February 2022

CoreLogic’s HPI indicates that home prices across the country will increase on a y/y basis by +3.2 through February 2022.  On a m/m basis, home prices nationwide are forecast to increase +0.6%.

Pandemic Impact on Home Prices

Continuing the surge in home prices due to historically low inventory, the COVID pandemic pushed February’s price increases to the highest level of annual gain since 2006

CoreLogic also notes that 21% of homebuyers in the nation’s top 10 metros chose to relocate away from densely populated, high-cost areas to more affordable suburbs, towns and rural locales. Affordability and more space preferences were the two primary factors motivating these out-migrations.
