Builder sentiment at the start of 2023 is nearly as low as it was back at the onset of the pandemic. Amid persistently high interest rates and the prospect of a mild recession, experts predict the first half of the year will be tough for housing.
With such growing uncertainty surrounding housing demand, builders and other industry professionals need to proactively make educated business decisions using data as their guide. That’s why the NAHB Economics team maintains an extensive library of up-to-date research and the latest forecasts in Housing Economics PLUS.
Subscribers to Housing Economics PLUS get exclusive access to housing projections, market trends and the most in-depth economic analysis regarding the housing industry. Some of the key reports subscribers can view each month include:
- Housing starts forecast by state;
- Long-term national forecasts;
- Building permits by metro area, and much more.
"I've utilized all the data sets available [in Housing Economics PLUS] during countless presentations to my company," said David Dietrich, national manager of residential and commercial programs at Huntsman Building Solutions. "It would be difficult for me to say which resource I find most valuable, but my go-to piece is always the Executive-Level Forecast due to the 'all new construction' view of multifamily, single-family and manufactured housing."
In addition to the wide array of exclusive analysis online, 2023 subscribers* of Housing Economics PLUS also get free access to the following resources (a $500 value):
- Replay of the Economic Outlook presentation on the nation's economy, housing prices and home building, and challenges facing the industry featuring three nationally recognized economists during the 2023 NAHB International Builders' Show®.
