Will houses be cheaper in 2021?
It is hard to imagine houses will be cheaper in 2021, but many people are predicting houses will be more affordable because interest rates and prices have increased.
Houses are expensive, but they might be cheaper in 2021. The cost of houses can be attributed to interest rates, property taxes, and the mortgage rate. The actual price of houses is what’s left after these three factors are considered. If we look at all three variables, it seems that houses will indeed become cheaper in 2021. According to an article from Interest Rates Info (2018), “interest rates may rise rather than fall.” This means that when you buy a house now, your monthly payments will probably increase because you’re borrowing more money for less time – meaning higher interest on your loan with each month as the years go by.
In addition, per Grand View Research Inc., by 2020 there might be over two billion people living in cities worldwide which would lead to increased urban densification and higher property prices.
In contrast, the Federal Reserve predicts lower interest rates by 2021 which would mean houses will be cheaper per year (which is what matters). The mortgage rate might also decrease in 2021 – it’s predicted to go down because of a weaker US dollar according to Grand View Research Inc. All these factors tell us that houses are going to become cheaper in 2021 due to increased demand for housing from people moving into cities, but lower interest rates on mortgages plus decreased inflation.
The housing market is volatile and we don’t know what will happen in the future. Some analysts are predicting houses will be cheaper in 2021, and some say they’ll stay the same. The economy is predicted to get worse before it gets better, so houses may not cost as much because people won’t have jobs or money for houses. Houses could also get more expensive because the demand has gone up with unemployment rates continuing to rise and there’s less housing being built. If you ask me I think houses will be about the same price we see in 2017 – 2020 unless something drastic happens like a major war that disrupts everything.

That’s my take, but we’ll have to wait and see if houses will be cheaper in 2021.
As the housing market has been cooling off, it’s important to know what you can expect of your house purchase or rental. You want to be able to afford your monthly payment and not have any unexpected repairs put a financial strain on you. If houses will become cheaper by 2021, then consider this when calculating out how much space you need for more than just yourself and maybe one other person.
