Low Inventory, High Demand and Rising Prices. What's Next?
With single-family sales volume growth and price appreciation in Wisconsin exceeding 10% year over year, the question on many of our minds is: "can it be sustained?" In this episode of WRA 360, economist, noted housing expert and Wisconsin native Dr. Mark Eppli will discuss the viability of the recent run-up in housing prices and sales volumes given the COVID-19 resurgence, housing supply shortage, interest rate environment, employment disruptions, and federal fiscal and monetary stimulus. The forecast may surprise you!
Discussion topics include:
- Fiscal stimulus and consumer balance sheet
- Interest rates and mortgage underwriting
- Housing supply and housing sales
- Housing demand and demographics
- Commercial real estate
