A Look Back: Trending Real Estate Stories From 2013

Real estate had a big year in 2013 as the housing recovery strengthened, and the public showed an increasing appetite for real estate-related news. 

Realtor.com® created a “2013 Real Estate Review” Web page that highlights some of the site’s top trends, data, and stories of the year.

One article – 7 Housing Trends for 2013 – highlights housing predictions from the year, allowing you to see how close the predictions were to coming true. Many of the predictions were right on par, such as mortgage rates rising, the return of bidding wars, and soaring home prices

The site also features a list of what’s to come with five housing predictions for 2014, including expectations for stabilizing housing inventories, the return of positive equity for more home owners, and rising mortgage rates.  

Realtor.com®’s “2013 Real Estate Review” also serves as a list to help you gauge the public’s interests in real estate topics over the past year, and a resource for you to share articles with your clients. The stories cover the gamut in real estate news, from celebrity home stories and the craziest places to live, to the year’s hottest decor trends – brass was back, home technology was in demand, and storage solutions got bigger and bolder.
