For months now many of Americans have been asking the same question: When will the economy turn around? Many experts have been saying the housing market will lead the way to a recovery, and today we’re seeing signs of that happening. With record-low mortgage rates driving high demand from potential buyers, homes are being purchased at a fast pace, and it’s keeping the housing market and the economy moving.
Here’s a look at what a few of the experts have to say about what’s going on in the real estate industry. In many cases, it’s being called truly remarkable.
Javier Vivas, Director of Economic Research for realtor.com
“All-time low mortgage rates and easing job losses have boosted buyer confidence back to pre-pandemic levels.”
James Knightley, Chief International Economist, ING
“At face value this is remarkable given the scale of joblessness in the economy and the ongoing uncertainty relating to the path of Covid-19…The outlook for housing transactions, construction activity and employment in the sector is looking much better than what looked possible just a couple of months ago.”
“Recent home purchase measures have continued to show remarkable strength, leading us to revise upward our home sales forecast, particularly over the third quarter. Similarly, we bumped up our expectations for home price growth and purchase mortgage originations.”
The strength of the housing market is a bright spark in the economy and leading the way to what is truly being called a remarkable recovery throughout this country. If you’re thinking of buying or selling a home, maybe this could be the year to make that move.
