SANTA ANA, Calif., July 07, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today Veros® Real Estate Solutions, an industry leader in enterprise risk management and collateral valuation services, released its Q2 2022 VeroFORECASTSM that anticipates home prices will appreciate on average just 4.5% for the next twelve months. This is a drop by almost half from the 7.1% appreciation forecast just one quarter ago. VeroFORECAST evaluates home prices in over 300 of the nation’s largest housing markets. Veros is committed to the data science of predicting home value based on rigorous analysis of the fundamentals and interrelationships of numerous economic, housing, and geographic variables pertaining to home value.
The steep decrease in expected average appreciation over the next 12 months is driven primarily by higher mortgage interest rates and lessening demand as some buyers are beginning to hesitate due to recession fears. However, there is still a very low inventory of homes available for sale in many markets, and this is preventing prices from slowing even more. A 4.5% average annual appreciation forecast signifies that the process has begun to return the market to historically more normal times from the overheated post-pandemic market of the previous two years.
Eric Fox, Chief Economist at Veros, commented, "Now that the Fed has finally gotten serious with fighting inflation, interest rates have moved up significantly and that is causing demand in some markets to slow significantly. To be clear, some markets are still quite strong with limited inventory and a large percentage of active listings which are pending. But we are finally starting to see the first signs of some major markets which we are forecasting to depreciate during the next 12 months – Most notably Chicago and New York."
Karen Picarello, a Certified Real Estate with RE/MAX Fine Properties in Scottsdale, AZ, is also seeing signs of a slowing, yet healthy, market. "With higher interest rates, some buyers are no longer looking, which is lessening overall buyer demand. Buyers with significant cash or equity are being more selective and no longer making offers on houses that are priced significantly above the last comparable sold price. Fear of a recession and crashes in both the real estate and stock markets are also impacting the buyers’ willingness to purchase at this point. Still, houses priced ‘at market’ in good condition are seeing robust activity with healthy offers and minimal days on market. So the market is actually in the process of returning to a more normal, healthy market."
The 10 strongest performing markets in the country forecast over the next 12 months are only forecast to appreciate at the 7% to 8% level, which is almost half of what the top performing markets were expected to do just a quarter ago. Raleigh-Cary is expected to be the top performing metro area with expected appreciation of 8.1% over the next 12 months and is joined by two other North Carolina cities of Goldsboro and Fayetteville in the 10 Strongest Performing Markets list. Spokane was in the #2 spot with 8.0%, and Olympia was another Washington city making the list. Arizona had the smaller cities of Prescott and Flagstaff making the list as did Florida with Vero Beach and The Villages. Finally, Richmond, Virginia, was the single represented market for this state.
