By in Tri-Cities Housing Market with 0 Comments

A new forecast says the Tri-Cities real estate market will be one of the strongest in the country over the next year.

The latest forecast from Veros Real Estate Solutions lists the 10 U.S. cities with the highest expected price appreciation, and 10 with the lowest expected appreciation.

The Tri-Cities comes in at No. 8 on the first list with a 7.2 percent anticipated price appreciation between now and June 2020. It’s a tie for the 8th spot — Yakima and Pocatello, ID, also have a 7.2 percent expected appreciation. Washington and Idaho dominate the top 10, taking up 8 spots overall. Texas has the other two. Here’s the complete Top 10:

  1. Odessa, TX (+9.7%)
  2. Coeur D’Alene, ID (+9.5%)
  3. Idaho Falls, ID (+9.4%)
  4. Boise City-Nampa, ID (+9.1%)
  5. Midland, TX (+8.0%)
  6. Bellingham, WA (+7.8%)
  7. Spokane, WA (+7.4%)
  8. Kennewick-Pasco-Richland, WA (+7.2%)
  9. Pocatello, ID (+7.2%)
  10. Yakima, WA (+7.2%)

In its announcement, Veros explains that housing inventory and population trends are two primary factors in predicting which markets will appreciate and which won’t:

Housing supply is a key discriminator between the markets in this forecast’s top and bottom rankings. A very low housing supply is a feature of the markets where prices are expected to increase significantly. Population trends are another consistent characteristic, with slow or declining population growth contributing to low demand in markets at the lowest ranks of the forecast.

On the flip side, Grand Forks, ND/MN is expected to have the lowest appreciation at -1.9 percent — prices there are expected to decline over the next year. The state of Louisiana has four markets in the top 10 with the lowest expected appreciation.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
