Zillow's 2022 Housing Predictions

What buyers and sellers can expect in another hot year for the housing market

The housing market for 2022 will sustain high demand and a strong sellers market from the year prior, predicts Zillow, but home prices will gradually decelerate after peaking in 2021. Though most market conditions will remain the same into the new year, buyers may begin to see less competition as prices grow at a much slower pace. 

Flexible work options will continue to influence home buying as more Americans relocate to metros with strong economic growth and more market affordability. The Sun Belt region is expected to encounter the highest demand, though sales volume will rise all across the country.

The housing market may not reach the incredible heights of 2021, but we expect it will be anything but slow next year. Expect the strong sellers market to persist, the Sun Belt to maintain its top spot as the most in-demand region, and flexible work options to continue to shape housing decisions in new ways in 2022. 

2021 marked the hottest housing market in U.S. history by some measures, including Zillow’s Home Value Index. While we may not see those records broken in 2022, Zillow economists expect incredibly strong price growth and sales volume to continue.
