Housing data released by the MIBOR BLC® comparing January 2020 to January 2021 shows:
Dr. Elliot Eisenberg, an internationally acclaimed economist and public speaker says, “Nationally, the housing market is expected to remain strong through 2021 due to a combination of favorable demographics, continued low interest rates, easier access to credit, and a continued lack of inventory. That said, sales are very unlikely to exceed the very strong levels of activity they have exhibited over the last half of 2020. They should, however, be able to maintain or come very close to maintaining that level of during 2021. Home prices should continue to rise, but by about half the rate they experienced in 2020. Housing is a bright spot in our recovering economy and should remain so going forward.”
