2022 summer housing market predictions

Curious how the real estate market will shake out this summer? Eager to learn if and how rates, buyer traffic and housing inventory will change before fall?

  • Will the housing market stay hot?
  • Are we headed toward a housing bubble?
  • Who bought houses in 2021?
  • Current supply and demand
  • Warning signs of a market crash


Where the Housing Market Is Headed in Summer 2022, According to Experts

Traditionally, spring is real estate season, but buyers across the country have been waiting for summer to finally see a return to normal inventory levels, normal competition and most importantly, normal prices.

As it turns out, a return to normal is probably pretty far off, but cracks are starting to emerge in the seller’s market that has defined the real estate industry throughout the pandemic period. The experts in the trenches are seeing clear indicators that relief might be on the way — but will it come in time for summer?


How to Prepare for a Slightly Cooler Summer Homebuying Season


Main Takeaways for Buyers

  • It’s expected to be a strong seller’s market, but cooler than what it has been.
  • Home prices aren’t forecast to drop, but are likely to rise at a slower pace.
  • Real estate trends are local. Work with an agent that is knowledgeable in the areas you want to purchase or where you’re selling your home.
  • To avoid house buying FOMO (fear of missing out) and panic buying, know what you can afford and stick to a realistic budget.

Main Takeaways for Sellers

  • It will still be a strong seller’s market, but not as intense as it was earlier this year with a smaller likelihood of a bidding war driving up your sale price.
  • Get ahead of preparing to sell your home. A local agent can help decide what repairs and upgrades could help with the sale.
  • Some markets, or sub-markets, may be stronger or weaker than others.

Homebuyers haven’t had an easy go of it the past few years, but there are signs the peak seller’s market is behind us.  READ MORE
