The Residential Economic Report – National Edition 1Q17

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 igher 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.

These reports are available for every major US Metropolitan market. For more information on The Residential Economic Report, visit:…
