How Will A Trump Presidency Affect The Real Estate Market?


By The Deb Tebbs Group

BEND, Ore. – It’s been one week since the world learned that Donald Trump will be elected the 45th President of the United States and now that the fears of how a Trump Presidency will affect the stock market have died down most people want to know how his presidency will affect the Real Estate market.

Mortgage Interest Rates

As we get closer to the end of the year it’s likely that we won’t see any changes in interest rates since Federal Reserve Chair Woman Janet Yellen has been hesitant to raise rates.

Come 2017 however interest rates could change since Donald Trump has been critical of the Fed’s policies, but in reality, only time will tell if there’s going to be a significant rate increase or not since the health of the economy is tied to the Real Estate Market.

Home Prices

In Bend, the median home price right now is $355,200 and we can expect home prices to continue rising through 2017 thanks to a strong economy in Central Oregon, especially in construction and the tech markets, which have brought more jobs to the area in the last two years.

Nationwide the median home value is $189,400 (Source – Zillow) and home prices are predicted to increase by another 2.9% next year.

What Are The Coming Changes To The Real Estate Market?

During the 1 ½ years that he spent campaigning, Donald Trump advocated making major changes to the U.S. Financial system including simplifying the tax code and eliminating the Dodd-Frank Act, and these changes could help home buyers, but until he’s elected President of the United States we can only wait to see what his focus will be during the first year of his presidency.
