If you're thinking of buying or selling in 2021, here's some really helpful information about our economic outlook from more than 20 leading economic and housing experts, including the National Association of Realtors.
A group of more than 20 leading economic and housing experts, including National Association of REALTORS® Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, participated in a consensus economic and real estate forecast that projects GDP growth of 3.5% and an annual unemployment rate of 6.2% in 2021. Housing prices are expected to climb 8% next year and 5.5% in 2022, with 30-year fixed mortgage rates of 3.0% and 3.25% for 2021 and 2022, respectively. The group said remote work will continue to be a factor in real estate markets but that the share of Americans working from home will decline post-pandemic, from 21% this year to 18% in 2021 and 12% in 2022.
