# Mortgage rates will continue to rise in 2019. Every time interest rates go up, buyers lose a little purchasing power, but the barrier maybe more psychological than financial. Buyers are starting to push back, they are saying “enough”.
# Homebuyers will have more negotiating power and sellers will need to make more compromises. Expect bidding wars to become less competitive, and price reductions to become more common.
# As price gains slow, home values will still appreciate at 2-3% depending on neighborhood
# Upscale neighborhoods will soften while demand for entry level housing remains high (source: forbes.com)
