1. Prices will rise more slowly
2. Affordability will worsen
3. The buying frenzy will fade
4. Mortgage interest rates will rise
5. Millennials overtake Gen X as homebuyers
6. Rent increases will outpace home value growth
7. Multifamily will reign 
8. Builders shift to cheaper homes
9. Foreclosures will match pre-recession levels
10. Markets driven by fundamentals
