4 Reasons Why Home Prices Will (Likely) Keep Rising in 2022
Last week, we reported that several forecasters had predicted a slowdown in home prices for 2022. That seems to be the general consensus among many housing analysts, economists and industry watchers.
But a “slowdown” is not a reversal. While home prices might rise more slowly next year, it’s almost certain they will continue to climb in most U.S. cities.
One notable housing analyst offered a bolder outlook, predicting that house values would keep rising by double digits well into 2022. He also outlined four specific reasons why U.S. home prices will keep rising in 2022.
4 Factors That Are Boosting House Values
1. Low mortgage rates
2. Loosened mortgage standards
3. An ongoing inventory shortage
4. The work-from-home trend
