Pacific North-West Real Estate Markets Hit Top 25 Forecast Big


WEBWIRE – Wednesday, May 30, 2007

Real estate markets in Washington, Oregon and Idaho composing the greater Pacific North-West have made the annual U.S. Housing Predictor Top 25 market forecast.

Housing Predictor, which is an information driven web site forecasts more than 250 local housing markets in all 50 states, and names the Top 25 markets annually in January, updating the list as local market conditions demand. The Top 25 markets have the highest probability of appreciation of all markets forecast.

Fourteen states are now represented by local housing markets in the Top 25 that are appreciating, despite the national real estate slump. Housing Predictor has a special report this month on just how “The Worst May Be Over in the U.S. Real Estate Slowdown.”

Propelled by a growing high tech boom and a healthy aerospace industry, the real estate market in Seattle, Washington, which appeared as though it would slow down and depreciate in 2007 earlier in the year was added to the list.

Portland, Oregon, which has seen it’s home prices more than double in the last six years alone and Boise, Idaho were also named to the Top 25 list. Boise is forecast by the U.S. Census Bureau to easily double in size over the next decade. Boise is business friendly and has been named by many periodicals to be the best place to start a new business in the nation.

The Housing Predictor Top 25 Market Forecast is regarded as a leading resource for real estate buyers, owners, investors and real estate professionals. The addition of the three Pacific North-West markets comes shortly before the annual mid-year update of the Top 25 U.S. markets, which is issued July 1st each year projecting housing market appreciation through the end of the year.

The top markets growth into 14 states are further evidence that local housing markets in a majority of the nation are appreciating or are at least stabilizing as the U.S. real estate market rebounds from a nationwide slowdown triggered by higher interest rates and massive fraud in mortgage lending. Congress is considering new laws to further control mortgage lending, which has been rampant with unethical lending practices forcing many homeowners into foreclosure.
