Housing Prices Show Sign of Instability in Latest Reports

Well, after a promising annual report for the year in September, it seems that we have fallen off the pace. This comes after a steady increase in housing prices that has gone on since April. The real question is whether this sign of instability marks another dip for home prices. I don’t think so, and here’s why:

  1. Year over Year Gains: Although the gains projected were not hit, housing prices have been increasing over last year. This is a good sign that this is a bump in the road and not a blockade. I would look for prices to bounce back in the coming months.
  2. Foreclosures Slowed: With much of the nation’s judicial foreclosure proceedings in review, fewer new homes are going to be entering the market this winter. This will increase the value of your home by increasing demand. This may or may not affect housing prices in your area.
  3. QE on the Way: The Fed will likely begin another round of aid known as Quantitative Easing, or QE, which will increase inflation and drive interest rates down. This should increase interest in home buying as well as housing prices in almost every area.

Nothing Set in Stone

Home prices are not always easy to predict. While it is likely that they will re-stabilize before the end of the year, there is always a chance they may not. The government has also not yet agreed to begin this new round of aid and may decide not to go forward with it. While that is unlikely, it is important to remember that staying on top of the facts will definitely help you make the right decision when it comes to mortgages and refinancing today.
