Predictions for OC housing markets 

The UCLA Anderson School of Business Forecast has predicted that the Orange County housing markets will see home selling price up by 2012 and that sales volume will rebound by 43% over the next two years.

We don't know what algorithms they used for this but hope they're right about predictions for the Orange County economy and housing markets. Orange County housing markets

Economists from UCLA Anderson forecasted that OC home selling prices would go up above $500,000 in 2012, that sold prices will go up from 6.6% to 9.3% each year through 2015, which would be price growth of 49% during the next six years.

As for home sales volume, UCLA Anderson predicts transactions up 27.5% in 2011 and continuing to climb through 2014, almost reaching levels of boom days during 2005.

housing market predictionsHousing markets at the OC will be slow for 2010 and next year 2011, then demand will increase, with rising affordability, and decreasing market fear, and sales will go up.

UCLA forecasters don't expect another recession.  However, they believe the recovery will be slow and that Orange County housing market recovery is "fragile."   the UnknownsThe unknown would be possible change for negative if lender shadow inventory of homes with delinquent mortgages gets moved quickly through foreclosure.  If that happens, more conventional recovery in housing probably would be delayed until early 2012, when more sales and stable sold prices still expected to dominate Orange County housing markets for next 12 months.
