Experts Forecast a Turnaround in the Housing Market in 2023

Experts Forecast a Turnaround in the Housing Market in 2023 Simplifying The Market

The housing market has gone through a lot of change recently, and much of that was a result of how quickly mortgage rates rose last year.

Now, as we move through 2023, there are signs things are finally going to turn around. Home price appreciation is slowing from the recent frenzy, mortgage rates are coming down, inflation is easing, and overall market activity is starting to pick up. All of thats great news for the housing market this year. Heres what experts are saying.

Cristian deRitis, Deputy Chief Economist, Moodys Analytics:

The current state of the housing market is that it is certainly in transition.

Susan Wachter, Professor of Real Estate and Finance, University of Pennsylvanias Wharton School:

Housing is going to ease up. I think 2023 will be a turnaround year.

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist, National Association of Realtors (NAR):

Mortgage rates have fallen in the recent past weeks, so Im very hopeful that the worst in home sales is probably coming to an end.

Robert Dietz, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President, National Association of Home Builders (NAHB):

. . . it appears a turning point for housing lies ahead. In the coming quarters, single-family home building will rise off of cycle lows as mortgage rates are expected to trend lower and boost housing affordability.
