REALTORS forecast significant home price increases in California

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

Significant Home Price Increases in California

According to the most recent REALTORS Confidence Index Survey, REALTORS believe home prices to continue to increase over the next 12 months but these prices will do so at a moderate pace according to REALTOR Magazine. The monthly survey is distributed to more than 50,000 real estate professionals asking them to for opinions on home sales, prices, and market conditions.

Although the expectation for home prices in much of the country is a slower pace, REALTORS did respond that the greatest price increases will more than likely occur in California, Alaska, Hawaii, and Florida. REALTORS predict that California home prices will increase 5 to 7 percent over the next year continuing the trend of annual significant home price increases in California.

In the same survey, REALTORS expressed concern over current market conditions holding back some buyers because of tightening credit conditions. “Access to credit was often cited as a deterrent to home buying,” according to the report in the current issue of REALTOR Magazine. “About 13 percent of REALTORS® who did not close a sale in February reported having clients who could not obtain financing.”

Although it may sound cliche, it’s time to buy before prices increase and loan availability becomes increasingly difficult. Call The Paul Kaplan Group regarding the current Palm Springs area real estate market.
