Experts are starting to make their 2023 home price forecasts. As they do, most agree homes will continue to gain value, just at a slower pace. Over the past couple of years, home prices have risen at an unsustainable rate, leaving many to wonder how long they would last. If you’re asking yourself: what’s ahead for the price of my home, know that experts are now answering this question and it's welcome news for homeowners who may have been led by the media to believe their home would lose value.    What Experts Say Will Happen with Home Prices This Year Historically, home prices have appreciated at a rate near 4%. For 2023, the average of six major forecasters noted below is 2.5%. While one, Zelman & Associates, is calling for depreciation, the other five are calling for appreciation. T...

While watching the stock market recently may have started to feel pretty challenging, checking the value of your home should come as welcome relief in this volatile time. If you’re a homeowner, your net worth got a big boost over the past few years thanks to rising home prices. And that increase in your wealth came in the form of home equity. Here’s how it works. Equity is the current value of your home minus what you owe on the loan. Because there was a significant imbalance between the number of homes available for sale and the number of buyers looking to make a purchase over the past few years, home prices appreciated substantially. And while rising inventory and mortgage rates have cooled the market some in recent months, home prices nationally remain strong. That’s why, according ...

By Melissa Dittmann Tracey   WASHINGTON – As mortgage rates surge and remain volatile, it’s becoming increasingly necessary for home buyers to shop around for a loan to find savings. According to Freddie Mac, borrowers potentially could save an average of $1,500 over the life of a loan by gathering one additional rate quote from a lender. And borrowers could save even more by gathering five different quotes from lenders—up to $3,000, Freddie Mac research shows.

Somebody once said "don't let a good crisis go to waste" probably the same person that said to wait till the price goes down to buy. Look the bottom line is don't let someone else live your dream. There is always going to be THIS or THAT in life, the sky is always falling and there is always a crisis somewhere and maybe it is even 5 O'clock somewhere so live your life cause no matter what happens or what doesn't you can be happy with your decision. I always say if you want it and can afford it then do it life is really simple others complicate it.  U.S. Housing Market at a Crossroads By Terry Collins Homes reached record prices in early 2022 – so is the current market a housing recession or just a market correction?

Not all home improvements are created equal. These will reward you the most when it comes time to sell. Your home is in the perfect location, came at the perfect price, with the perfect lot. (Yay southern exposure!) But the home itself? Perfect isn’t the adjective you’d use. But you knew that moving in, and now you’re ready to start making it just right. Where to begin, though? How about with data? Data is that friend who tells you like it really is. Because while any home improvement that brings you joy is priceless, not all add as much home equity as you might expect. The "Remodeling Impact Report" from the National Association of REALTORS® has tons of data on how much improvements cost — and how much of those costs you can recoup. Here are eight of the report's best home remodeling ...

  By Liz Weston If you can legally add an accessory dwelling unit (ADU), should you? It could increase a home’s value or bring in rent – or be more trouble than it’s worth. NEW YORK – Accessory dwelling units are known by many names: in-law suites, guest houses, backyard cottages, or basement or garage conversions, among others. What all ADUs have in common is that they’re a separate living space typically added to a single-family residential lot, and they’re having a moment. Constructing an ADU could increase your property value while providing rental income or extra living space for a family member. Then again, adding an ADU could be an expensive hassle you live to regret. If you’re thinking about an ADU, here’s what to consider before you commit. Why ADUs are increasingly popular In...
