The housing market’s been going through a lot of change lately, and there has been uncertainty surrounding what will happen this spring. You may be wondering if more homes will go on the market, what is next with home prices and mortgage rates, or what the best advice is for someone in your position right now. 

 Here is what industry experts are saying right now about the spring housing market and what it means for you: 

 Selma Hepp, Chief Economist, CoreLogic:
We see more competition among buyers . . . Housing supply also tends to grow during the spring months. And this is also the time of year when more migration happens, as people graduate and move elsewhere looking for jobs.” 

 Greg McBride, Chief Financial Analyst, Bankrate:
“I do not expect big moves in prices in the span of a month, but like the flower buds of spring, the housing market is showing signs of improvement. A pick-up in activity with inventory still low does bode well for home prices.” 

 Rick Sharga, Founder and CEO, CJ Patrick Company:
If you can find a home you love and can afford at today’s prices, do not wait. Home prices in most of the country are unlikely to crash, and mortgage rates will only come down very gradually if they decline at all this year.” 

 Jeff Tucker, Senior Economist, Zillow:
“The market is still much friendlier this spring for buyers who can overcome affordability hurdles, but buyers are going to see more competition than they might expect because there are not many homes on the market to go around. New listings are increasing, which they almost always do this time of year, but not nearly as quickly as usual.”
