Latest Housing Reports for Major Metro Areas


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: Forecasts from analysts suggest that home prices in the Atlanta area could rise more slowly in 2019 than they did in 2018. But don’t let that fool you. This is still an active market with constrained supply and steady demand from buyers.

Austin, Texas: The capital city of Texas is currently suffering from a serious imbalance between housing supply and demand. There are plenty of buyers in the market, thanks to tremendous population growth. But there aren’t enough homes to meet the demand.

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.

Cleveland, Ohio: A housing report by ATTOM Data Solutions revealed that buying a home is cheaper than renting in Cleveland. But a fresh round of forecasts suggest that house values will keep climbing throughout 2018.

Dallas, Texas: The DFW metro area real estate market has seen significant price gains over the last year or so, leading up to early summer of 2018. But one forecast suggests that home value appreciation might slow down a bit.

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: According to David Tina, president of the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors: “these things point to more demand for housing, with more home sales and appreciation expected for the foreseeable future.”

Phoenix, Arizona: The latest housing forecasts from Zillow and other sources suggest that Phoenix home values could level off, or even dip, over the coming months. But steady population growth and limited supply could help it escape that fate.

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.

Seattle, Washington: The Seattle-area housing market has had some serious ups and downs over the past few years. Lately, however, home prices have shown a bit more stability. But supply remains very low for this market.
