We publish new real estate reports on a regular basis, to keep our readers informed. On this page, you’ll always find the latest housing market forecasts and reports for major metro areas across the U.S.

Atlanta, Georgia: One report suggested that the Atlanta-area real estate market could be one of the hottest in the country during 2023. In this article, we outline some of the key reasons for this prediction. Low unemployment and a strong economy have a lot to do with it.

Austin, Texas: All throughout 2021, the Austin real estate market was one of the hottest in the country. But in 2022, all of that began to change. Now, the pendulum has swung strongly in the other direction, giving buyers more bargaining power.

Charlotte, North Carolina: Due to increased demand and limited inventory, Charlotte experienced above-average home price gains during 2017. But economists expect this market to cool down a bit in 2018, in terms of year-over-year price growth.

Chicago, Illinois: Forecasts suggest that home prices in Atlanta could rise more slowly in 2018 than they did in 2017. But don’t let that fool you. This is still a very competitive real estate market, and it could remain that way for some time.

Dallas, Texas: The DFW-area real estate market has seen significant price gains over the last year or so, despite the ongoing COVID situation. And a recent forecast predicted more of the same in 2021. Not surprising, when you consider Dallas is one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the U.S.

Detroit, Michigan: The real estate market in Motor City has gone from bust to boom over the last few years. And it is now attracting bargain-minded home buyers from other parts of the country, due to the low prices found there.

Houston, Texas: Like many cities across the country, Houston’s real estate market is expected to see smaller home-price gains in 2019 than in 2018. But it could still be a great year to buy a house.

Las Vegas, Nevada: Ready to roll the dice on a home purchase in Las Vegas, Nevada? You’re not alone. This metro area is experiencing strong demand from buyers in 2021, with additional price growth likely into 2022.

Nashville, Tennessee: At the end of 2020, Zillow asked a panel of economists which housing markets might “out-perform” the nation in 2021 in terms of home-price growth. Nashville, Tennessee topped the list. It’s a supply and demand story, as usual.

Phoenix, Arizona: Ever since the coronavirus pandemic began, there has been a lot of real estate market “crash” talk. But we haven’t seen any real danger of that, thus far. Here are three reasons why the housing market in Phoenix, Arizona won’t see a crash in 2021.

Raleigh, North Carolina: Raleigh was a fairly hot real estate market as of summer 2018, with steady demand from buyers. Predictions from leading researchers suggested that house values would continue rising into 2019 as well.

San Antonio, Texas: When you look at the current supply-and-demand situation in San Antonio’s real estate market, it’s easy to understand why economists are forecasting continued price growth through 2018 and into 2019.

San Diego, California: Southern California has a lot to offer its residents, and that’s partly why this region’s housing market is so competitive. In 2021, we expect to see strong demand and steadily rising home prices across the San Diego metro area. Inventory shortages have a lot to do with that.

Seattle, Washington: The population of the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metro area has soared over the past ten years or so. As a result, a growing number of home buyers are competing for a declining number of properties. These lopsided market conditions have boosted house values over the past year, and will probably continue to do so going forward.
