As with 2017, first-time buyers will have the hardest time, with little in their price point. 
 
"The macro-factors that have defined real estate in recent years—strong demand and weak supply—continue to set the tone for the industry," says Joseph Kirchner, senior economist for realtor.com.

The issues? Builders have been burdened by construction costs and lack of labor, and concentrated on higher-priced homes.
 
"Builders will need to focus more on homes geared for moderate incomes, partner with the government on initiatives to transform distressed urban neighborhoods and overcome labor shortages through a combination of workforce development training and pressure to ease artificial restrictions on the supply of labor," Kirchner says.
 
The dearth of inventory made prices rise, but sales struggle in 2017, according to data from realtor.com. Appreciation was at an average 5.8 percent, while pre-owned sales eked out a 1.1 percent gain. Comparing blue and red states:
 






 
A factor of significance: tax reform. In 2017, 2.5 percent of blue state mortgages were over $750,000—the limit on the mortgage interest deduction (MID) under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which will apply to loans obtained on or after Dec. 15, 2017. Only 0.4 percent of red state mortgages were over the threshold.
 
"The new tax law that caps the mortgage interest deduction and the deductibility of state and local taxes can be expected to impact the upper-end market in 2018—precisely how and the extent of which remain to be seen," says Kirchner.
 
Around the bill's passage, realtor.com researchers surveyed Americans on their attitudes toward homeownership in light of reform. More than one-third were "concerned;" a considerable group of homebuyers and sellers reconsidered their plans.

How the recovery has shaken out, however, is telling.
 
"A decade after the financial crisis, the scars of the housing bust are still with us," says Aaron Terrazas, senior economist at Zillow. "The gap between the metros with the strongest and weakest housing market recoveries is as wide as it has ever been."
 
How much markets have recouped varies wildly, the report reveals. The biggest gains are out West: homes in the San Jose, Calif., metropolitan area are worth $615,100 more than they were 10 years ago; homes in the San Francisco metro area, likewise, are worth $435,700 more. In areas like Indianapolis, however, appreciation has been considerably less. The average falls somewhere in the middle: $55,200.
 

 
"The California Bay Area's housing recovery stands out when compared to other markets that saw similar home value appreciation because it has more than regained all of its lost value," Terrazas says. "Strong, high-paying job markets and persistently limited inventory sent prices skyrocketing, leading to the Bay Area having the most valuable housing markets in the country."
 
How the 10 largest metro areas have recovered:

See what else is cookin' now at blog.rismedia.com: Be it an email hack, a phishing scam, a Nigerian money order or a product that sounds just too good to be true, there are dozens of ways you can get scammed online. At best, you lose $20 on a product that doesn't exist. At worst? All your financial data gets hacked and your electronic device becomes infected with malware.
 
To avoid any situation similar to these, here are a few red flags to stay alert for in order to keep your business and personal property safe:
 
Payment required without clarity. If you're interested in checking out a product for your business or personal enjoyment and up-front payment is required before you can get any real information, it's likely a scam. No product photos, reviews or a number to call to talk to an actual human being? Give it a pass—it's likely a phishing scam.
 
Required downloads. One of the top ways online scammers can get you is by asking you to download something, and then infecting your hard drive with malware and stealing your information. If you're being asked to download something from a source you can't find information on, or if your anti-malware software (because you have that, right?) is giving you an alert, back away slowly.
 
Jargon. Be wary of jargon you don't understand. Reputable companies aim for customer clarity. Fraudsters aim to confuse and trick. If you're feeling confused or pressured with the information presented, leave it be.
 
Too-good-to-be-true promises. "For as little as $20, you can be making up to $1,000 a day!" Sound familiar? Perhaps. Sound true? Not so much. If a product or "tool" is making lofty promises, they're likely empty, or an attempt to snag your banking information.
 
Now that you're aware of some red flags, here are a handful of tips to help you avoid falling prey:
 
Google  "<company name> scam". This is one of the easiest ways to catch a scam artist, and those who have fallen prey are taking to the web to warn others. Always do your due diligence by searching this simple phrase on Google for safety.
 
Look for a working number. No working phone number? It's likely a scam. And if there is a number, make sure someone actually answers your call—don't settle for an automated message.
 
Look for an address. Legit businesses have an address, yes? After you locate the address, Google it to see what comes up.
 
Trust your gut. Something in your belly giving you stay-away signals? Listen to them! As intellectually driven as you may be, sometimes intuition wins, so pay attention.

See what else is cookin' now at blog.rismedia.com: In the past, home sellers were told to tidy up, mow the lawn and perhaps do a few modifications; however, the current dog-eat-dog real estate market now demands a more hardball approach, and that's where home staging comes in.
 
In the past, home sellers were told to tidy up, mow the lawn and perhaps do a few modifications; however, the current dog-eat-dog real estate market now demands a more hardball approach, and that's where home staging comes in.
 
Staging a home is a crucial selling point when marketing a house. Studies show that investment for staging takes 1-3 percent of the home's requested price, while on average, it brings in an 8-10 percent return on investment. Indeed, effective home staging is more than just cleaning up. As a matter of fact, it is a blend of science and art, creativity and psychology. It contemplates how to compose a great looking home. It suitably demonstrates the capacity of a place. The goal of home staging is to provoke potential buyers to feel like they own a home as lovely as the one they're in. The outcome can be a flying sale at a greater price. 
 
Now that you have made the decision to sell your home, you need to view your home as merchandise that has to be sold at its absolute potential. You need to arrange the interior, as well as the exterior, with an eye on selling your home with the extensive appeal to prospective buyers.
 
The psychology of human behavior combined with the artistry of interior design results in a quicker, more profitable home sale. For instance, the personal items you treasure in your house—that make it feel like home to you—may not have the same impact on potential buyers. In fact, they could make them feel out of place. And this is where the home staging science comes in. 
 
To provoke homebuyers to feel like they own a neatly arranged house, professional home stagers work to counteract this negative emotion. Here are some ways to showcase a property at its best:
 
Never Stage a Flawless Home

The aim of home staging is never to design a flawless home. Why? No two homebuyers have precisely the same tastes. Rather, the goal of home staging should be to create a tasteful, neutral setting that exhibits the potential of the home, which buyers would instantly visualize as their home.
 
Eliminate the Clutter
Clearly, the room size doesn't vary depending on what's inside; however, clutter certainly does give an impression that a room seems tinier. That being said, you should eliminate clutter, as well as arrange what's left behind to make the rooms look decent enough to display. The first impression is everything, and a house free of clutter seems considerably larger.
 
Roll on a Fresh Coat of Paint
One of the most economical ways to make your home show well is a fresh coat of paint on your interior walls. You should opt for neutral colors, such as warm beige or pale green. Paint can also work miracles on old woodwork. Simply putting on some paint has the potential to immediately revive your kitchen and make it look more attractive to buyers.
 
Picking Art
Buying art for the home you live in is very different from choosing the art for staging a home. Selecting art for your walls is an individual choice that mirrors your personal tastes and needs to match the decor. When picking art for home staging, you're not picking art for yourself, but art that would accommodate your buyer. Since you have no idea who that buyer is and what their tastes may be, the art should be less eye-catching and have a broader appeal. 
 
Curb Appeal
Your curb appeal objective for the outside of your home is the same uncluttered embellishing that you want indoors. The absence of tidiness and allure can be worth several thousand dollars, and probably months on the real estate market. Begin the process of staging your home's exterior by creating a list of things that need attention. Additionally, enhance the exterior with several decorative tools. For instance, one thing you can do is arch your patio with retractable folding arm awnings in a vivid color to add beauty to the exterior. 
 
Home staging helps a home look and feel balanced to a potential buyer through an artistic science. With the right amount of soft and hard furnishings and accessories placed in particular sections of the house, staging displays space or emphasizes features of a room and bursts of color to make it more inviting and memorable.
 
One chance is all you have to make a first impression on a buyer. Keep in mind that the first price reduction is always higher than the bottom line in staging. " ["preview"]=> string(476) "In the past, home sellers were told to tidy up, mow the lawn and perhaps do a few modifications; however, the current dog-eat-dog real estate market now demands a more hardball approach, and that's where home staging comes in. In the past, home sellers were told to tidy up, mow the lawn" ["link"]=> string(65) "http://rismedia.com/cs/{ID}/{AffiliateID}/{SubscriberID}/{ItemID}" ["type"]=> string(4) "item" } } array(2) { ["ItemsNewsletters"]=> array(5) { ["item_id"]=> string(5) "97429" ["newsletter_id"]=> string(5) "26110" ["section_id"]=> string(10) "Section_06" ["item_type"]=> string(4) "item" ["zone"]=> string(17) "More News Stories" } ["Item"]=> array(7) { ["id"]=> string(5) "97429" ["subject"]=> string(46) "Economic Forecast Hinges on Policy, Tax Reform" ["authors"]=> string(17) "By RISMedia Staff" ["data"]=> string(2475) "The economy could get a lift from tax reform, with homebuyers and homeowners likely having more income, but less in the way of write-offs, according to Fannie Mae's Economic & Strategic Research (ESR) Group's recently released Economic and Housing Outlook for January 2018. Analysts believe housing will again be marked by short supply this year. 
 
"The new tax laws are likely to motivate a mixed response in the housing market: Increased disposable household income should lead to greater housing demand, but changes to deductions essentially reduce the subsidy for homeownership," says Doug Duncan, chief economist at Fannie Mae. "On balance, we expect the housing market in 2018 to encounter many of the same challenges as last year, including inventory shortages, particularly in the middle and lower-end of the market, and affordability headwinds."

Analysts anticipate GDP will increase 2.7 percent, as well as a tumbling unemployment rate—if policymakers step up.
 
"The question for 2018 is less about the impacts of the tax cuts for consumers and corporations than about how the Fed manages the pace of monetary policy normalization amid a stimulative fiscal environment," Duncan says. "As we see it, the traditional view of a trade-off between employment and inflation lacks solid empirical support in recent decades, and aggressive monetary policy to ward off a potentially overheating economy may do more harm than good. Managing a 'soft landing' will be a difficult but critical task for policymakers in 2018."
 
Analysts also expect the Federal Reserve to hike the key interest rate, which can affect the cost of a loan, including mortgages, at least twice this year. The Fed raised the rate three times in 2017.
 
Fannie's forecast comes on the heels of another outlook released this week by Freddie Mac, which anticipates a boost in home prices, sales and starts in 2018.

2018 Home Decor Trends: 6 Interior Design Ideas for Your Bedroom
Financial Resolutions That Can Help You Buy a Home in 2018 
Social Skills: Responding to Negative Feedback Online 

From robots to voice assistants, this year is set to see a boom in smart home products. Earlier this month, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 concluded a record year with more than 1,000 speakers and close to 200,000 attendants over the course of four days. Held in Las Vegas, CES is one of the largest tech shows in the world, and, at this year's event, smart home products had a far greater presence than at any previous CES event.
 
Here's our list for the top smart home trends to look out for in 2018, based on products presented at CES:
 
Voice assistants
All four of the trends on this list aren't new products or ideas by any means, but in 2018 you should expect to see interest in these tech trends really heat up. That goes for voice assistants. Some of the most popular tech products of last year were the Amazon Dot and Alexa. That's not exactly what we're talking about here—instead, look out for voice functionality to be incorporated into a wide range of products this year. From speakers to dishwashers, many existing smart home products will be adding Alexa, HomeKit and Google Assistant voice functionality.
 
Smart mirrors
The beauty category has the most wildly varying set of technologies currently being introduced to the market. From the Kerastase Hair Coach to Amazon's Echo Look, there were many different technologies brought to market in 2017 and we should expect to see even more advances this year. One of the most intriguing trends we've seen are smart mirrors; several were presented at CES, including the HiMirror Mini (pictured above) which analyzes your face and gives you a score based on how many wrinkles and blemishes you have. Other notable examples come from Simplehuman, and MAC, which has begun installing AR mirrors in their stores so people can try on makeup without actually "trying on makeup." It's a safe bet that 2018 will be an interesting year for smart beauty technology.
 
Exercise equipment
Peloton has been getting some serious competition lately in the smart home exercise equipment arena. The category has become more and more popular, and brands like Flexispot, with its exercise desk bike, could soon give the connected indoor bicycle company a run for its money. Flexispot's desk bike won a CES Innovation Award this year. Peloton, however, answered back at CES this month by unveiling the Peloton Tread ($3,995). The smart treadmill (pictured above) is similar to the company's bikes in that it includes an HD touchscreen for watching classes taught by instructors live from New York. And, at 32 inches, the treadmill's touchscreen is more than double the size of the bike's. Look out for more eyebrow-raising technology and price tags in the exercise equipment space this year. 
 
Smart appliances
One of the more intriguing categories, but one that we likely won't see much movement in this year, are smart appliances. Like the name suggests, these are larger appliances—washer machines, refrigerators, etc.—that are integrating smart technology. There are already a handful of these appliances on the market that incorporate voice functionality or can be controlled remotely via an app; however, this is another smart home trend that you should wait and see with.
 
One thing's for sure: There is a lot more smart home tech to look out for in 2018 than in previous years—some of it may be worth a purchase, but all of it will be interesting.
