Real Estate Trends for 2017 from Forbes

real estate market

For months, the real estate market—and markets in general—have suffered a lack of security. From the Brexit aftermath to the U.S. election, political wildcards, as well as structural market shifts, have made prognostication and predictions difficult. But there are still fundamental changes at play and, amid the ups and downs, the United States has emerged as a safe haven and investment opportunity.

Key Takeaways:

  • An interesting tidbit I found: smaller homes have seen a sharper increase than larger ones in recent years. This means housing stock for those smaller homes is also low, so finding the perfect home with less square footage may prove difficult.
  • On the flip side, buyers looking to trade up to a larger home find themselves in the housing market’s sweet spot.
  • Looking back at the last five years, the average price of a two-bedroom house climbed 59 percent nationwide.
