2014 Real Estate Market Stats and Trends

Historically low mortgage rates, a return to normal price appreciation, a decline in foreclosures/short-sales, less investors (leaving room for more first time home buyers) and an improved economy through out the year were a few major factors in why the real estate industry was able to enjoy a strong 2014. Looking ahead to 2015, the real estate market is expected to continue taking positive strides. Frank Nothaft from Freddie Mac predicts, ” The U.S. economy appears well-poised to sustain about a 3% growth rate in 2015 – only the second year in the past decade with growth at that pace or better.”
