Where Experts Say Prices Will Go

Where Experts Say Prices Will Go
While housing inventory is increasing and buyer demand is softening today, there’s still a shortage of homes available for sale. That’s why the market is seeing ongoing price appreciation. Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American, explains it like this:
“. . .we’re still well below normal levels of inventory and that’s why even with the pullback in demand, we still see house prices appreciating. While there is more inventory, it’s still not enough.”

Market Updates and Real Estate Advice

Market Update
Friday Jul 15 2022
This week the median list price for Virginia Beach, VA is $420,000 with the market action index (MAI) hovering around 68 (indicating a strong seller's market).
However, this is less than last month's market action index of 74. Inventory has increased to 523, which is somewhat expected in this housing climate.
The market has been cooling over time and prices plateaued for a while. 
Watch for changes in MAI. If the MAI resumes its climb, prices will likely follow suit. If the MAI drops consistently or falls into the Buyer’s zone, watch for downward pressure on prices.

Key Takeaways
Inventory is slightly rising, which means more options for buyers,  but it also remains a great time to sell.

The only problem we see so far is that it's truly anyone's guess, and that seems to be what everyone is doing...guessing.

Is it all bad news?

Certainly, there are a prevalence of positive tidbits scattered throughout the fears that we’re seeing in online publications. Almost every news article we have read about the economic impact of the federal rate hikes have been offset with indications that the market is still ripe for the picking…if you’re in the right position. 

“If you’re waiting for prices to suddenly plummet to what they were in the past, you’re making a mistake,” says Tabitha Mazzara, director of operations at Mortgage Ban ...
