Experts forecast the 2016 real estate market

Idea go,

Hartford Business Journal's 2015-2016 Book of Lists includes experts’ forecasts on what the Greater Hartford real estate market will look like in 2016. There’s a view among the experts that there will be less demand for overpriced properties and that first-time buyers and investors will rule the market.

Also under consideration is the impact of public policy on real estate values. Experts also say job stability and interest rates will play a role in the 2016 real estate market.
