Housing Market and Economic Forecast for 2022

I’m always so excited when the new Monday’s With Matthew comes out!. Matthew Gardner is Windermere’s chief economist. This is his forecast for next year’s US housing market and economy as a whole. According to Mr. Gardner’s projections, towards the end of 2022 we will see employment rates return to pre pandemic levels and inflation will be decreasing. We will trending towards a more balanced real estate market.  Mortgage rates will continue to creep up but not too high (towards 4%) and housing appreciation will remain robust but not at the levels we’ve seen for the past 18 months.

If you are interested in a look at recent trends in Western Washington specifically you can check out the Q3 edition of the Gardner report that I’ve uploaded here. For a report on your current neighborhood or the area you’re looking to purchase in I can’t recommend a better resource than the Neighborhood News.
