It has been a seller's market for a while now, and industry experts expect that to continue into 2018. While it may be challenging for many home buyers, this is good news for potential sellers, since home prices are expected to continue to creep upward because of demand and lack of inventory. However, buyers can still make adjustments that will make purchasing a house a bit easier on them and their bank accounts. As with most investments, timing will be everything.
