Housing Price Forecast

“The housing market news for the next three months indicates a continuation of the positive trends in both sales and prices,” said Geoffrey J.D. Hewings, director of the Regional Economics Applications Laboratory at the University of Illinois.  “Compared to last month, more people feel it is a good time to sell, but less people feel it is a good time to buy.  Overall, consumer sentiment seems little changed with analysts pointing to the lower than expected April job growth as the probable cause.”
