By Amber Taufen | inman
It’s been one unprecedented 2016, between the Brexit vote, the continued persistence of low mortgage interest rates and an election that seemed to temporarily throw markets for a loop.
What will the 12 months encompassing 2017 hold in store for housing?
Inman asked eight different experts to give their take:
Steve Cook, editor of Real Estate Economy Watch
Doug Duncan, senior vice president and chief economist at Fannie Mae
Mark Fleming, chief economist at First American
Matthew Gardner, chief economist at Windermere
Svenja Gudell, chief economist at Zillow
Ralph McLaughlin, chief economist at Trulia
Rodney Ramcharan, director of research at University of Southern California’s Lusk for Real Estate
Jonathan Smoke, chief economist at realtor.com
Here’s what they told us.
