Thinking of selling your home? Do it before 2020, economists say

Prospective home buyers these days are probably feeling pressure to lock in a deal quickly given skyrocketing home prices across most of the country. Real-estate website Zillow and research firm Pulsenomics surveyed more than 100 real-estate experts and economists — and roughly half of them predicted that the next recession will begin sometime in 2020, most likely in the first quarter. This prediction dovetails with a survey of economists carried out by The Wall Street Journal earlier this month.
