Here are the latest housing market predictions for 2021 & 2022. It has been roughly one year when the pandemic put the housing market on hold for several months last spring. But the real estate market bounced back rather quickly. For nearly a year now, low mortgage rates and increase in working from home ignited by the pandemic have fueled a rapid increase in housing demand — espicially in lower-density suburbs.

Only 22% of San José homes are affordable to median-income households. That means home ownership of a median-priced home is out of reach for nearly 80 percent of the city’s residents.
