The US real estate market has seen many ups and down in the past few years. Despite the turbulence, the investment opportunities have been continuously growing – whether we talk about luxury assets or affordable housing. If you wish to diversify your portfolio through real estate investments, FIG Tree Capital Ventures can be your trusted partner. To learn more about how the US housing market is going to turn out in 2018, we bring your four real estate predictions for the rest of the year. Take a look.
Renting Over Buying
Certain states in the US, such as Nevada and California will see an increase in housing prices, which raises the question; whether people will rent or buy? Experts suggest that a majority of people will be inclined towards renting, which represents an opportunity for investors who can buy real estate properties now, and rent them out to start realizing instant returns.
Growth in House Hunting Millennials
According to the National Association of Realtors 2017 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends report, individuals between 35-50 years of age usually find it easier to get home loans, which means they are more likely to invest in properties. The results indicate an increase in the number of investors who would be putting in money to capitalize on the increasing demand.
Increase in Inventory
Experts expect small increases in housing inventory at the high-end of the market by year-end, with luxury construction continuing in major metropolitan cities like New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Boston. The increase in inventory of luxury housing presents a promising investment opportunity for affluent individuals.
Uptick in Mortgage Rates
Experts suggest the residential mortgage rates will finish somewhere between 4 to 5 percent in 2018, which is only a 0.25 – 0.50 percent growth from 2017. The minimal increase means the working or middle class individuals looking to become homeowners, stand a chance to invest in a real estate property in moderately priced areas of the housing market.
