It might be just the right time to make a move-up for certain homeowners in 2017.
Those in the best position are people looking to upsize. Smaller homes, apartments, and condos have seen sharper price growth than larger homes, which means it could be a good time to sell and make your move into a bigger home. Especially if you’re current home is in the city, since “urban areas have appreciated faster than metro outskirts.” Both of these trends will likely continue in 2017.
This is interesting news considering the uncertainty many potential sellers have had in the past few months, noted in our post “Rising Prices and Indecisive Sellers.”
