Predictions for Housing in 2011

Will housing values increase in 2011? Fortune.com offers both a bullish and a bearish prediction.

The bulls say: Affordability is at its highest level. Billionaire Warren Buffet is among those who believe this is a sign the slump is about to end. Buffet writes: “Prices will remain far below ‘bubble’ levels, of course, but for every seller (or lender) hurt by this there will be a buyer who benefits.”

The bears say: It’s not over yet. Housing is still overpriced and inventories are enormous, says Daryl Jones, an analyst at investment research firm Hedgeye. Jones warns that home prices could fall another 15 percent to 30 percent because no one is buying.
