What awaits us for 2022?

It has been another exceptional year for residential real estate, but what the future holds for 2022 is still to be seen. The rapidly changing market landscape remains driven by a myriad of circumstances – COVID outbreaks, supply chain issues, and the growing trend of working from home – that make the Crystal Ball much murkier. But our expert panel of Chicagoland brokers, lenders and developers remain vigilant in their commitment to navigate the uncharted waters of a market like no one has ever seen.

Will stocks increase in 2022? What will happen to interest rates as we take two steps forward and one step back in the battle to eradicate COVID? What are builders expecting when it comes to bringing new units to market in the next 12 months? It may be a year where all bets are off when it comes to predictions, but one theme was consistent in this year’s Predictions issue: The future is bright for the industry.

This month we dig deeper into construction in our Real Problems column which takes a look at the local and national homebuilding industry. Our forward looking coverage continues with a column from the new President of the Chicago Association of REALTORS®, Antje Gehrken.

If you’re not already planning for 2022, now is the time to start, and we aim to get you on the right foot with our new Top Coach column, written by real estate coach Katie Lance, which offers some key tips on making videos. content for your business.
