2014 Housing Forecast

housing_forecastWhen the housing market tumbled about five years ago, it became a very one-sided buyer’s market – inventory was up, prices were down, and interest rates were at historical lows. Over the last year, we’ve seen the market improving and becoming more balanced.

In 2014, we should see home prices continue to inch upward, but interest rates are also on the rise. Buyers should take advantage of the current market conditions while they last!

The impact of large-scale investors

big-business-4Institutional or large-scale investors.  Perhaps you’ve heard about them or even bid against them when trying to purchase a home over the past couple of years.  Regardless, their existence has impacted Central Indiana/Indianapolis home values.  They have made it harder for everyone from local investors to first-time buyers looking for their new home.

Some of these large-scale investors are backed by private money and others have raised funds through IPO’s on the stock exchange.  In either case, these investors have bought dozens of homes each month around Central Indiana.  Some hold the properties as rentals and others rehab the properties and resell them.

The link below will take you to a story that discuses their impact and possible exit strategy from the market.  Contact me if you have any questions.
