Seven years after its worst collapse since the Great Depression, the U.S housing market seems to be getting back on its feet.
But will the recovery last? If you own a home, are you wondering whether its value will rise or fall in next four years? If you're shopping for a new place to live, you may be waiting to see if the recent price run-up will keep going. Should you wait for another pullback?
Before you sign on the dotted line, you may want to consider which presidential candidate you should vote for.
To help you decide which lever to pull (or chad to punch), a recent survey of housing experts found that the outcome of the November election will have a clear impact on the trajectory of house prices.
The analysis comes from a quarterly poll from Zillow, a real estate research and listing service, which asked its panel of experts how the November presidential election would affect their expectations for the housing market and overall economic outlook.
According to the experts: Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders would set back the housing market recovery. Along with the overall prospects for economic growth.
The panel would rather see voters elect a candidate with more centrist views espoused by candidates like Democrat and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who suspended his campaign after the survey was conducted.
