Major Shift from predicted a major shift in its latest 2022 Housing Forecast.  Rather than an increase of +6.6% in existing home sales as it predicted earlier this year, is now expecting existing home sales to drop a full 12 percentage points to -6.7% by the end of 2022.

“As Americans grapple with higher prices for everyday expenses while today’s buyers face housing costs that are up 50% from a year ago,” continued Hale, “recent home sales data shows some (potential buyers) are taking a step back from the market.”

Better Market for Buyers in the Fall Predicted is expecting inventory to improve +15% by the fall of this year in this updated 2022 Housing Forecast report.

This prediction concerning inventory is also a big about-face from its expectation earlier in this year that inventory would rise just +0.3%.

“Our updated 2022 forecast anticipates that demand will continue decelerating through the summer, providing breathing room for the inventory recovery to accelerate,” sale Hale.  “As a result, this fall could be an opportune time to find a home.  Still,” Hale cautioned, “preparation will be key throughout 2022 as it continues to be a seller’s market and asking prices remain high.”

Discrepancy in Home Prices & Buyers’ Budgets to Continue anticipates that home prices will remain elevated throughout 2022.  This marketplace  site expects home prices to increase an additional +6.6% over 2022 rather than its previous prediction of home prices rising just +2.9% earlier in the year.

Meanwhile, according to Redfin, homebuyer budgets remained flat with a rise of just +0.3% in the three months ending April 30 (as we discuss in a correlating post on this week’s calendar.)

Redfin’s deputy chief economist Taylor Marr said, “Budgets haven’t fallen from a year ago and we don’t expect home-sale prices to fall either.  But the fact that budget growth has slowed so significantly is one sign among many that home-price growth will continue to slow as the year goes on.”
