Real estate markets across North America can expect Seller’s market conditions to continue into the new year, as Zillow’s 2022 housing forecast expects a “strong long-term outlook” driven by continued demand and limited availability of supply.
“The strong long-term outlook is driven by our expectations for tight market conditions to persist, with demand for housing exceeding the supply of available homes.” Says the report.
Zillow is predicting that home prices across America will climb 13.6% year-over-year, starting October 2021, in addition to last year’s 19.5% price increase from December 2020 to December 2021.
