Real Estate Predictions for 2014

Posted on by Alex

This is at the kind of news Realtors and home buyers want to read:
“The coming year is expected to be a little kinder to home buyers. While affordability will continue to be a problem in hot markets like New York and San Francisco, buyers in general may find they have more homes to choose from and more lenders vying for their business.”

With this prediction also comes the higher interest rate prediction which is expected to reach 5% this year. This is still an all time low for the market and quite a deal over 30 years when buying your Palm Springs home!
