Economists' Outlook

Housing stats and analysis from NAR's research experts.

Confidence in Current Residential Markets Up

The REALTORS® Confidence Index is an indicator of housing market strength.  Conditions are measured as "strong" (100 points), "moderate" (50 points), and "weak" (0 points). The overall ratings are the averages of responses.  A score of 50 is the threshold between a "strong" and a "weak" condition.  Realtor® confidence in the market outlook is presented in terms of the current market and the market outlook for the next six months for single family, townhouse, and condo markets.

Single Family Properties:  Confidence is Rising—Well Above Moderate.

Townhouse Properties:  Confidence Improving--Approaching Moderate.


Condominiums:  Confidence Still Relatively Low, But Improving Substantially.
