Towards the end of each year I collect some housing forecasts for the following year. This is just a beginning (I'll gather many more).
The table below shows a few forecasts for 2020:
From Fannie Mae: Housing Forecast: October 2019
From Freddie Mac: Freddie Mac October Forecast: Housing Market Remains Strong While Economic Slowdown Looms
From NAHB: Economic and Housing Forecasts
Note: For comparison, new home sales in 2019 will probably be around 633 thousand, and total housing starts around 1.243 million.
