Zillow Forecasts a Dip in Home Prices, Rebounding By Next Year

Zillow | May 04, 2020

Buyer demand and healthy housing-market dynamics will prevent U.S. home prices from dropping more than 2-3% -- or more than 1.7% year over year -- in the wake of the coronavirus, according to a forecast released today by Zillow®. The forecast says home sales will fall as much as 60% this spring and take through the end of next year to recover, while prices will fall through the year but recover a few months sooner. The recovery is likely to look like a checkmark, with transactions building at a pace of about 10% each month through the end of 2021, according to the forecast by Zillow Chief Economist Svenja Gudell and her team of economists and analysts.

With this acquisition, Transactly further expands their national network of tech-enabled Transaction Coordinators -- already the largest in North America -- to include Moncord’s vast team of coordinators in the Pacific Northwest. “We are excited to welcome Moncord into the Transactly family,” says Transactly founder and CEO Bryan Bowles. “Alex and Lisa Mont-Ros have built an incredible team of talented individuals at Moncord. This acquisition significantly increases Transactly’s ability to serve agents, teams, and brokerages in all key markets across the country.” Moncord was founded by Alex and Lisa Mont-Ros, a husband and wife duo whose leadership in recent years has grown Moncord into the leading transaction coordination service in the Pacific Northwest, helping their clients close over $5 billion in transactions. “This is a natural next step for Moncord,” said Alex of the acquisition, “Our goal has always been to empower TCs so they can be their best, which enables real estate agents to focus on efficiency and growth. With Transactly’s ever-improving tech -- which truly stands alone in the industry -- our coordinators will continue to deliver the level of excellence which clients have come to expect from both Moncord and Transactly.” Transactly has retained all existing Moncord staff, and is enrolling all transaction coordinators and clients into their technology platform to ensure an ever-improving digital client experience -- something that is otherwise lacking in the real estate industry.
