Phew, it’s been a wild year!

Hope you had a very happy holiday season and wishing you a great start to the new year! We can take a look ahead at the market and a brief snapshot of the past 45 days.

How does 2022 look?

 To quote Goldman Sachs (October), they are forecasting U.S. home prices will soar another 16 percent over the next year; at press we have already seen a 6 percent rise. This is a slight deceleration in the growth of home prices — which are up 17.7 percent over the past 12 months alone.

Inventory in 2022 will certainly remain tight, and interest rates will likely also rise. The hope is that wage growth will help balance things a bit!

There is a lot of new construction that will be hitting the market, but builders are still dealing with labor and supply issues, so that is putting greater pressure on inventory.

Here is a snapshot of the past 45 days! These numbers certainly highlight the last of inventory.
