With fall winding down and winter on the horizon, the traditional seasonal market tempering is also following suit – if just a bit. Buying opportunities still remain and for those looking to make a move and sell, it’s still a good time.  

According to CoreLogic, the last 12 months have averaged approximately 18% appreciation nationwide. The number changes fairly dramatically depending on the specific area/market of interest.

That said, a recent survey of real estate entities expects home appreciation to still be on the rise for the coming year, estimated at 5.2% nationwide. Buyers who are expecting or waiting for the proverbial “dip,” and all things being equal, will likely find waiting to purchase may cost even more than today.
