Jim Stepanian, the CEO of Summerlin Asset Management, releases SAM’s annual real estate market forecast for 2015.
All major regions except for the Midwest experienced a slight gain in activity during Q4 of 2014. Jim Stepanian stated, "The consistent economic growth and steady hiring we've seen during the second half of this year is giving buyers enough assurance to consider purchasing a home before year's end," he said. "With rents now rising at a seven-year high, historically low borrowing rates, and moderating price growth are likely to entice more buyers to enter the market in upcoming months. Our channel checks continue to show a significant amount of “shadow inventory” (bank owned foreclosures and defaulted mortgages) that will continue to trickle into the retail marketplace in 2015. However, strong consumer demand in 2015 will result in what we predict will be a flat pricing market throughout the year. We expect very small pricing gains in the west, south west, and flat to low single digit price declines in Florida as foreign investment buying slows down due to European economic conditions and a strengthening US dollar”, Stepanian Concluded.
