Bozeman Real Estate Forecast and Bozeman Home Sales History
Bozeman’s real estate market is heating up, but with a lesser-than-normal number of Bozeman homes for sale.
The 2017 US national home sales and housing market prognosis is very good.
Based upon the positive US housing forecast for 2017, the Bozeman real estate forecast should follow the trend, especially because Bozeman is one of the United States’ fastest growing micropolitan cities.
Nationwide, 2017 home sales should be robust, according to the the Mortgage Bankers’ Association (MBA), National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and others. NAR predicted 2016 US home sales were to be about 5.8 Million, and in 2017 NAR predicts housing sales will increase to about 6 million. MBA is banking on 6.5 million home sales. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are predicting 6.2 million. Housing starts will increase 1.5 million/year into 2040 and 160,000 homes will be constructed/year up to 2040.
Donald Trump is considering a bill to forgive student loan debt after 15 years. Many Millennials and younger adults have difficulty paying both for high student loan debt and home mortgages. On the other hand, Gen Y buyers will keep home and condominium sales strong into 2020.
In 2017, in some major markets, top forecasters indicate home sale appreciation at around 10%. Some aspects affecting the US economy are the possibility of further interest rate increases, US Government deregulation, and labor shortages.
In early 2015, Lawrence Yun, chief economist with the National Association of Realtors (NAR) stated, “Over 80% of millennial and Gen X buyers consider their home purchase a good financial investment, and the desire to own a home of their own was the top reason given by millennials for their purchase.”
