Economists Predict Home Price Appreciation for 2013 to Top 6 Percent On National Level

Home Price Appreciation for 2013

Home Price Appreciation for 2013 is expected to be 6.75 percent (year-over-year from 2012), according to  the average estimate of a panel of 106 economists surveyed by Pulsenomics.  Interesting enough, though the economists had varying opinions, not one panelist project a decrease in home prices for 2013, in fact the lowest estimation of home price increase for 2013 was 1.69 percent and at the other end of the spectrum, the highest projection was 15 percent.

Also worth noting from the survey was the fact that 88 percent of the economists on the panel did not feel that recent increases in mortgage interest rates posed a “significant threat to the ongoing housing market recovery” however, it was noted that if interest rates hit 6 percent that could be a “show stopper” for the housing recovery.
