Housing Trends

Watch The Outlook Webinar: COVID-19 Update – May 6

In this segment of our weekly Outlook Webinar: COVID-19 Update, Senior Managing Principal, Tim Sullivan, and Chief Economist, Ali Wolf, provide real-time updates on how the coronavirus pandemic impacts the housing industry. 

Key economic and industry changes discussed in the presentation include: 
  • States continue to relax containment measures; More than a dozen states let stay at home orders expire and businesses open up in response –  Opendoor and Offerpad, to name a few.
  • More than 30M Americans filed for unemployment due to COVID-19 job losses and consumer spending has experienced its biggest drop since 1980.
  • The U.S economy is anticipated to recover slowly for many reasons, including: the federal debt level has quadrupled, consumers and businesses are forecasted to reduce spending, and increases in interest rates from the Fed to combat inflation will lead to reduce investments.
  • Buyers continue to become more virtual in their housing research and buying with a +3% increase in web traffic week-over-week.
  • At risk markets like Houston are negatively impacted given lower demand, higher competition and volatile oil market.
