7 Housing Trends for 2013     As 2013 comes to a close and real estate experts forecast where the housing market is headed in 2014, here is a look back of the trends from 2013.    1. Housing Prices Rose Faster Than Expected According to Trends Vision by Metrolist, the median sold price for a home in Tracy was $278,000 in January 2013, and it has since climbed to $345,000 by November 2013. The pace of price appreciation accelerated significantly over the year.  2. Mortgage Rates Rose Remained Low We expected mortgage rates to rise in 2013, and they started to increase in the late spring, but they're still very affordable when you look at rates on a historical scale. They aren't the super-low rates we saw in the past few years. According to Freddie Mac, 30-year fixed-rate loans were as lo...

Housing Market Predictions for 2014 The road to recovery will continue through 2014. The chief economist for the National Association of Realtors (NAR) predicts home prices to increase an additional 6% next year.

Demand is High The most recent Existing Home Sales Reports by the NAR show a double digit increase in sales year-over-year; home sales have remained above last year's levels for over 25 months now. There are buyers out there now that are serious about purchasing. 2. Supply Is Beginning to Increase Total housing inventory has been gradually r...
