California Association of Realtors (Last year’s prediction: 4.3 percent increase in 2017)

The California Association of Realtors forecast California home prices will increase an additional 4.2 percent in 2018, rising to $561,020. Leslie Appleton-Young, chief economist for the organization, said that California’s five-year run of rising home prices is expected to last another three to five years, with median house prices on track to beat the record highs set during the housing bubble. CAR also expects mortgage interest rates to rise slightly next year, but not enough to deter homebuyers. Rates for traditional 30-year, fixed mortgages are forecast to rise to 4.3 percent in 2018. That’s still low compared with historical averages but up from 4 percent this year and 3.6 percent in 2016.
