The slowing US housing market will have 'a small silver lining' in 2019

“It’s going to be boring,” said Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Realtors Association, referring to 2019. “There will be no measurable increase or decrease.”

“Throughout next year, prices will continue to rise on a national basis in most cities around the country but the pace of increase will continue to slow,” said David Blitzer, managing director and chairman of the index committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices, adding that toward the end of 2019 we could possibly see home price annual gains slow to 3%. Realtor.com’s prediction is slightly more bearish at a 2.2% annual price increase.
