The housing market remains constrained by affordability challenges and a limited supply. As we move into 2024, the question arises: will there be a significant shift, or are we likely to experience more of the same? While the Federal Reserve has hinted at three rate cuts for 2024, the anticipated impact on mortgage rates may not be substantial enough to break the existing pattern of limited housing inventory and affordability issues. The consensus among experts suggests a subdued outlook for the housing market in 2024.


Veros’ projection anticipates a 2.4% rise in house prices from Q4 2023 to Q4 2024, with mortgage rates expected to average 6.7% by the end of the year. This is not expected to significantly alleviate supply constraints or improve affordability.

In 2024, with mortgage rates averaging 6.8%, homebuyers will experience reduced pressure to hurry against escalating borrowing costs. As a result, house prices are projected to dip by 1.7%, following a 3% increase in 2023. Additionally, the volume of homes available for sale is expected to decline by 14%.
