Join Mark Boud, Senior Vice President & Chief Economist of Metrostudy, as he presents the 1st Quarter 2017 National Residential Economic Report.

First quarter report highlights —

  • Job growth may increase in 2017/2018 from 2016. 
  • Housing shortages will continue to bemore intense.  Look for an accelerated and shorter, sharper real estate cycle, with a peak in the 2018/19 time frame.
  • Ah higher national Debt-to-GDP ratio will lead to higher interest payments which will eventually dilute US currency and slow the US economy.

The National Residential Economic Report is a modeled forecast released quarterly of over- and under supply of housing in the nation, as well as over- and under valuation, which impacts the future of housing most significantly. The five-year forecast is further informed by recurring national indices that track construction starts, employment, and other key indicators, and provides us a framework to forecast the future state of housing across the nation, and in major markets.
