According to the KIPLINGER REPORT, home prices will rise in 2014 but a slow steadier pace compared with historical trends. The housing recovery has pushed up homes prices nearly everywhere.
Over the past year, home price rose in 225 of the 276 cities tracked by Clear Capital, a provider of real estate data and analysis. Good news for people who have waited to sell their houses. Prices nationwide rose by 10.9%, up by $30,000 to $215,000!
In 2013, a sense of urgency drove buyers to take advantage of affordable home prices and low mortgage prices. However, buyers were forced into bidding wars. Sellers reaped the rewards of quick sales and often receiving above asking price.
Kiplinger market observers agree that home prices will rise 4% and Clear Capital is projecting a 3% to 5%.
