  • Home Price Expectations, Then and Now 

The below animation illustrates the evolution of home price expectations among members of our expert survey panel since the housing bust. It reveals how the outlook for U.S. home values has shifted over time, and the degree to which the spread between the most optimistic and most pessimistic quartiles of experts has narrowed in recent years.   

The diminished dispersion of expectations we see now is consistent with a market recovering from the waves of uncertainties unleashed by repeated government policy interventions during the bust.
