Searching for Main Line Homes for Sale? We Reveal the Latest Housing Market Data

Latest Main Line Homes for SaleWhen looking for Main Line homes for sale, understanding the most recent market research and data is important. The team at Sage Realty keeps up to date on current information and tracks the pricing trends. In this latest post, Sage Realty explores the 2017 U.S. housing marketplace and the latest news and data.

Increase in Values

Some good news is on the horizon for those homeowners who could be in the market for Main Line homes for sale over the next four years. A recent survey by Pulsenomics of over 100 economists, real estate experts, investment leaders, and strategists revealed that home values are expected to continue to increase. A home valued at $260,000 in January 2016 is expected to appreciate to $293,198 by the year 2021. This news is corroborated by findings of market experts at Core Logic who have stated that home values are expected to increase by 5.3% between October 2016 and October 2017, making now a great time for buyers to enter the market. With anticipated gains in value of about 3% per year, new home buyers will have gained significant equity by 2021.

The Political Impact

Another consideration for those buying a home in the coming months is the change taking place in the market as a result of the new presidency. The lower taxes promised by the president could mean that more people would have the discretionary income needed to buy new homes.The coveted home mortgage interest deduction, often threatened, should remain in place after the dust has settled.

First-Time Homebuyers an Increasing Element of the Market

New data from the Realtor.com® Active Home Shopper Report shows another interesting trend taking place across the U.S. housing market in 2017. First-time homebuyers are now expected to account for at least half of the homebuying activities this year. The news shows an increase of nearly 20% from 2016 figures, and indicates that significant growth is taking place in the number of first-time buyers able to move forward with their purchases this year.

Featured Testimonial

I moved to PA from Washington State and learned that realty is local. There were things that I thought I knew about buying a house previously but boy was I wrong. Linda was very patient with me but also did not hold back when she saw potential problems, and always made sure I had all the information I needed before making a decision and didn’t belittle concerns to just get a sale. Above all else, and this was the most important thing to me, Linda has a high ethical standard, is very transparent in her approach and is someone I trusted making one of the biggest decisions of my life. – A.
