arrows in the sky

Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner. The housing market is still hot and that trend is expected to continue throughout 2021. U.S. News published an article at the beginning of April 2021 about the summer housing market expectations. Some changes are expected, but overall it is anticipated to continue on an upward trajectory. The factors contributing to the positive market are:

  • Low-interest rates. Although interest rates may rise slightly, they are expected to remain low and ideal for buyers.
  • The desire for more space among homebuyers will continue to drive the market.

  • Due to increased new construction and sellers deciding to put their homes on the market, inventory is expected to increase, but the market is expected to remain favorable for sellers.
  • The suburbs and smaller markets will continue to see most of the focus as many are moving out of cities. However, the quick vaccine rollout will offer some revival of the real estate market in larger cities.
