At the outset of 2017, we are watching for upward movement in some of the same areas that we were watching in 2016.

However, buying a home is still considered more affordable than renting in two-thirds of the country according to the 2017 Rental Affordability Report by ATTOM Data Solutions.

  • New Listings decreased 7.5% to 384
