What will The Real Estate Market in 2014 be like?
After a double digit
increase in home prices and sales occurred in 2013, this positive trend in the
real estate market will continue throughout 2014 as well. As greater Tampa Real
Estate professionals, SI Real Estate team is confident that the recovery of the
housing market, job growth, and lower unemployment rate will continue to make
housing more affordable.
Here in the greater Tampa
Bay area, there will be more homes available than there have been in several
years. Homebuilders have regained enormous trust in the housing market and have
started building more new homes than we have seen in many years!They cannot build homes fast enough. This
will help to increase real estate inventory and satisfy the high customer
demand for both new and resale properties.
In addition, according to
Lawrence Yun, chief economist as the National Association of Realtors, “2013 has marked the second straight year
of a very respectable recovery with a 20% cumulative increase in existing-home
sales over the past two years, and nearly a 20% rise in home prices.”Home prices are expected to grow in 2014 by
5% which “will be good for the general consumer in 2014,” said Mr. Yun.
Also, the rising prices of
2013, helped over 2.5 million homeowners with underwater mortgages move to a positive
equity status, according to Realtor.com. Moreover, the foreclosure market has been
slowing down in the recent years and the number of foreclosures went down by a strong
33% since the end of 2012. As the overall housing market is becoming stronger,
the number of foreclosures will keep declining.
The year 2014 will be even
more exciting year for the entire American economy as we see the results of our
hard work in this recovery.The Real
Estate market won’t be an exception. Here
at SI Real Estate, we have managed to realize a great mixture of exceptional
history, knowledge and skill, and customer care in our housing market. This
blend has enabled us to build on our past achievements and hopefully exceed
them in 2014.
