Homes to appreciate 10% this year - BarclaysApril 26, 2013 @ 7:25 am (Updated: 4:42 pm - 4/26/13 )
Home prices will likely climb 10 percent in 2013 and 8 percent in 2014, according to Barclays analyst Stephen Kim, who recently upgraded his view of the housing market from neutral to positive.
Kim told The Wall Street Journal recently that low mortgage rates are helping to make buying more affordable than renting in many markets.
About "18 months ago, the industry was nothing much to look at: dilapidated foreclosures were flooding the market, home equity had suffered the worst retrenchment in a generation, and housing starts and sentiment were far below historic troughs levels," Kim noted. "But after stabilizing in 2012, both new and existing home prices are now accelerating much more rapidly than in the 1990s cycle."
