As stages, for example, Netflix and YouTube have become the dominant platforms in current media utilization, an ever-increasing number of sellers will be looking to solely work with agents who use video in their real estate marketing. 

Green Real Estate is The Next Big Thing

Housing Market Will Be "Progressively Competitive"

Many real estate experts predict the U.S. housing business sector will be progressively competitive in 2020 as the cooldown that started in the second half of 2018 concludes.

Low home loan rates began to renew the market toward the end of this summer. However, we won't see their full effect on interest for housing until one year from now.

In 2020, purchasers will have fewer homes to look over than they have in five years. However, the arrival of bidding wars is uplifting news for sellers who may have been holding out this year as the market balanced out. The competition and quicker price growth will entice more mortgage holders and builders to list homes, which will help improve the harmony among market interest before the year's over. 

Environmental Change Is Now a Buying Factor

2020 will check the main decade where environmental change will factor into home-purchasing choices. Throughout the next decade, higher insurance premiums in high-hazard regions will make housing even more expensive to more individuals. What's more, in areas with the most noteworthy hazard, back up plans may quit giving insurance by and large, which implies it will be almost difficult to verify a home loan in those regions. 

Agencies Will Turn Out to be Dependent on Automation

Automation is causing a significant disturbance in a wide exhibit of enterprises. While there are fears that it may replace a few jobs, the utilization of AI, big data, and other trend-setting innovation is helpful to the eventual fate of realtors.

For instance, you can completely automate the lead sustaining process on account of different Proptech arrangements. To remain competitive right now, automation and real estate innovation arrangements are important. 

Home Loan Rates Stabilized at the Low End of the Range

Expect 30-year fixed home loan rates to remain low, floating around 3.8%. Confronted with easing back financial development, the Federal Reserve will keep loan fees low. Even though the housing market is solid, a shortcoming in different segments, such as assembling, is bringing the economy to the bottom side.

The organization sees some breathing space on rates, reliant on the U.S. economy in 2020. Since financial specialists are now supporting the probability of a downturn, real estate businessmen don't expect contract rates to fall a lot of lower than 3.5% in 2020 regardless of whether the economy debilitates. If the economy fortifies, they expect mortgage rates to remain beneath 4.1%. 

The Decline of Home Loan Rates Won't Last Long 

Home loan rates matter, yet the present decline won't last, experts, say.

More than some other factor with the possibility to affect home-purchasing demand through 2020, house loan rates are seen to be more fundamental.

Realtors say that albeit 30-year mortgages are close to 18-month lows and accessible now at rates beneath 4%, the close term viewpoint at home costs has debilitated a bit. Cooperatively, this information recommends that most experts accept the ongoing rate move is a transitory plunge, and that home-buying demand through one year from now will be diminished by other, increasingly steady factors that influence affordability like obliged stock and the growth of house prices comparative with wages. 

On the off chance that a Recession Occurs, Housing Won't Be Overly Affected

There is a discussion of a U.S. downturn one year from now, although that notion is getting muted after strong economic numbers in December. Furthermore, if an economic slowdown occurs, the housing business sector will face hardship.

Not at all like past recessions, there is currently an amazingly low inventory of homes. Agents expect the cost of entry-level homes to by and by growing quicker than income in 2020.

First-time homebuyers are in a troublesome spot since builders aren't developing enough homes at the more moderate end of the market. However, the positive side is that low inventory and exceptionally high home loan quality will probably confine the seriousness of a future recession, though, we aren't foreseeing when the next downturn could happen. 


In conclusion, home values will be up by 2.9% in 2020, and that should prompt all the more buying activity.

By concluding the above points 2019 will end with a slight rise in home sales. For 2020, the expectation is that the sales should ascend around 2.9% to simply over 5.5 million units.

Home prices will keep on increasing as home loan rates stay competitive. Look for prices to increase 3.8% in 2020 as demands keep on surpassing supply and all the more first-time purchasers enter the market.
