The housing experts say the market is “normalizing.” But what does that mean for the Palm Beaches? Will home prices in Palm Beach County and rents finally come down? Will more homes go up for sale? And what does the year ahead have in store for the real estate market?
“The nation’s housing market, after a wild surge that sent home prices up over 30 percent in some cities in 2021, will be less intense next year”, according to Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors (NAR).
