I never thought I'd see the BIG city of Dallas called a "hidden gem", but here we are! According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), these "gem" markets should expect strong appreciation in home values over others around the country.
“The housing sector performed spectacularly in 2021 in many markets, with huge gains achieved in places like Austin, Boise, and Naples,” Lawrence Yun, chief economist and senior vice president of research at the National Association of Realtors, says in a news release. “Several markets did reasonably well in 2021, but not as strong as the underlying fundamentals suggested. Therefore, in 2022, these ‘hidden gem’ markets have more room for growth.”
What does that mean for homeowners and buyers? More of what we saw last year. With inventory still low and buyers looking to make a move, buyer competition for the best homes (look great/priced right) and I'd expect most of these homes will sell with multiple offers. Interest rates have gone up in the past couple of weeks which will have an effect on how much home a buyer may be able to purchase.
Let me know your thoughts! I don't know many people that don't have an opinion on this topic!
