US House Prices to Rise Twice the Speed of Inflation
June 6, 2018
According to a poll by Reuters, US house prices will rise twice as fast as inflation rates and pay rates. Due to the shortage of available housing and rising demand by purchasers housing prices nationwide are expected to rise at more than 5 percent over the next few years.
A poll was taken by the S&P/Case Shiller Index of 45 analysts of home prices in the 20 largest cities in the US. Analysts expected a 5.7% increase in home prices over the next year compared to a 2.8% inflation rate projected for 2018.
