Zillow sponsors the quarterly Zillow Home Price Expectations Survey. The survey asks more than 100 leading economists, real estate experts and investment and market strategists to predict the path of the Zillow Home Value Index over the next five years. The survey also asks the panel to weigh in on important economic trends, including what could happen to mortgage interest rates and the ongoing role of investors in the market.

Highlights (August 2015):

  • Panelists surveyed by Zillow expect home values to end 2015 up 4.1 percent year-over-year, on average.
  • On average, panelists said they expected the U.S. homeownership rate to rise only slightly, to 63.7 percent, over the next five years.
  • Almost two-thirds of panelists said rent control policies are “government intrusions into the marketplace that, however well-intentioned, always create more problems than they solve.”
