The 2020 housing market has been a challenge to say the least. Here is our forecast for 2020.
We Predict Prices will Keep on Rising
Savannah River Realty predicts home prices will continue their climb upward, largely due to tight inventory and high demand.
Without more listings coming on the market, Savannah River Realty believes this shortage in resale inventory will contribute to higher home prices as long as the demand continues.
