Consider this your home buyer’s toolkit. Open it up, take a look around, and if you like, start equipping yourself with the tools necessary to make your best purchase. In most businesses, knowledge equals power, and real estate is certainly no exception.

We hope you enjoy the free reports we have provided, and we hope you learn a little more about what it takes to make your important purchase a great one. For most people your house purchase is the largest investment that you will ever make, and you should not have to do that alone.  We will make sure that the price you pay is in line with the home you buy.

The real estate market in Chicago can be tricky, and all of the information about buying a home can be overwhelming.  Let two responsible agents help you out in this decision.

Where Prices are Headed over the Next 5 Years?

 

Home-Price-Expectation-275Today, many real estate conversations center on housing prices and where they may be headed. That is why we like theHome Price Expectation Survey. Every quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists about where prices are headed over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.

The results of their latest survey

The latest survey was released last week. Here are the results:

  • Home values will appreciate by 4.5% in 2014.
  • The average annual appreciation will be 3.94% over the next 5 years
  • The cumulative appreciation will be 19.7% by 2018.
  • Even the experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey still are projecting a cumulative appreciation of almost 11% by 2018.

Individual opinions make headlines. We believe the survey is a fairer depiction of future values.
