Towards the end of each year I collect some housing forecasts for the following year. This is just a beginning (I’ll gather many more).
The table below shows a few forecasts for 2019:
From Fannie Mae: Housing Forecast: October 2018
From NAHB: Economic and Housing Forecasts
Note: For comparison, new home sales in 2018 will probably be around 623 thousand, and total housing starts around 1.265 million.
