In April 2023, the US housing market experts remain cautious about the housing market’s recovery. While Forbes reported that home prices fell for the first time in 11 years, prices still remain high, housing inventory continues to be a significant challenge due to tight inventory issues and low construction levels since the 2008 housing crash. Consequently, low inventory has kept demand high and propped up home prices, and experts predict that low inventory will continue to affect the housing market in 2023. 

Despite rising home sales and increased construction, experts remain cautious due to other economic factors such as high inflation, steep interest rates, geopolitical uncertainties, and recession fears. While there are positive signals, such as increased construction and builder sentiment, inventory issues are likely to continue to strain the housing market throughout the year.

Additionally, there is impact of rising interest rates and inflation on the real estate market, as well as the ongoing problem of low inventory adding to the checklist buyers have when house hunting. 

Technology is playing an increasingly important role in real estate, with the rise of virtual home tours, digital mortgages, and other innovations. Overall, the real estate market in 2023 is expected to be shaped by these and other important trends, as buyers and sellers adapt to changing economic and social conditions.
