Housing Price Forecast

“The housing market in December behaved in a similar way to its historical pattern,” said Geoffrey J.D. Hewings, director of the Regional Economics Applications Laboratory at the University of Illinois. “Activity in both prices and sales was modest but increases were recorded for month-over-month and compared to the same month last year.  Consumer sentiment remains positive towards housing purchases with inventory levels perhaps posing problems in some submarkets.”
