U.S. consumers expect home prices to fall over the next 12 months. An August survey by Fannie Mae found that respondent­s see a 0.4 percent decline in housing prices compared with the prior month’s expectatio­ns for a 1.9 percent increase. Consumers also anticipate that rental price growth will slow, with yearahead expectatio­ns dropping nearly two percentage points, the steepest slide in data back to 2010, according to the survey released Wednesday.
