CoreLogic Predictions into 2022


March’s home price gains reached the highest levels in 15 years. Supply shortages of for-sale homes across market tiers clearly spurred those price increases.

CoreLogic anticipates much of the same for the remainder of 2021 although upticks in both new home construction and for-sale listings are expected to increase.  If these upticks actually happen and inventory actually opens up, price gains may begin to cool off a bit during the second half of 2021.

CoreLogic is anticipating that those upticks will happen and as a result, expects home prices to calm down to a moderate increase of approximately +3% into 2022.
