Where are the home prices heading over the next five years?

Every Quarter, Pulsenomics, an Economics Research and Consulting firm, surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts, and investment and market strategists about where they believe prices are headed over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.


The results of their latest survey:

Home values will appreciate by 4.5% over the course of 2016, 3.6% in 2017 and about 3.2% in the next two years, and finally 2.9% in 2020 (as shown below). That means the average annual appreciation will be 3.5 % over the next 5 years.

The Prediction for cumulative appreciation increased over a full point from 17.5% to 18.7% by 2020. The experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey are still projecting a cumulative appreciation of 11.1%
