In our latest economic update, Danielle Marceau, Prevedere Senior Economist, discusses the U.S. housing market’s unique dynamics during the economic downturn.

The third wave of COVID-19 cases is adding significant headwinds heading into 2021. Business closures remain elevated, consumers are reluctant to re-engage in public life and are uncertain about the future, and overall economic growth is slowing and vastly uneven by industry. However, the U.S. housing market is on fire.

In this update, Danielle looks at data, such as new housing starts, existing home sales, consumer intent, and search activity to uncover why the housing market is doing so well amid a global pandemic.

Danielle answers the question, “is the urban exodus fact or fiction?” and identifies some caveats to her findings, including New York and San Francisco.

Access now to find out what’s fueling the housing market and when we can expect it to cool down in this economic update.
