Keeping You Current: Madeleine’s 2019 Real Estate Trends & Predictions


Madeleine’s 2019 Real Estate Trends & Predictions

Here at Compass, our mission statement is to help everyone find their place in the world. For me, a home is just that—it's the space, no matter how little or big, that is authentically yours. It's the space that allows you to plant a tree and watch it grow for years to come, it's the one place that allows you to reset, unwind, & relax from the outside world. It's not tied down to extensive rules or regulations that prevents you from being your authentic self; it's your space. So whether that's a luxury mansion, an oceanfront condo, or a single family residence with a greenbelt, it's my mission to help you find home.



What Buyers & Investors

Can Expect In This 2019 Real Estate Market

Millennials will keep buying homes — despite rising rates.

"The housing market in 2019 will be characterized by continued rising mortgage rates and surging millennial demand. Rising rates, by making housing less affordable, will likely deter certain potential homebuyers from the market.

Where Is The Housing Market Headed In 2019?

DID YOU KNOW?  A weak housing sector has accompanied every American recession since 1965, but not every episode of housing weakness has accompanied a recession. An annual drop in the growth rate of residential investment (a good measure of homebuilding activity) of more than 10% has coincided with a recession six of the 8 times it has occurred since 1965. (In 1967 and in 1995, declines in residential investment occurred without a recession.) A significant drop in residential investment therefor appears to be a necessary condition, but not a sufficient condition, for a U.S. recession. Housing slowdowns tend to lead recessions rather than result from them.
