Crystal balls and magic 8 balls will not be used. Rather, industry experts will rely on hard data, notable trends and key insights as they discuss the housing outlook for 2016 and beyond during the Fall Construction Forecast Webinar.
NAHB will host the semi-annual event tomorrow Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 2-4 p.m. ET. Leading economists and finance experts will examine some of the most pressing issues in housing, including:
  • Predictions of housing’s path in 2016-17
  • Hurdles regarding labor and land shortage
  • Changes in demographics and demand
  • Actions and impacts of the Federal Reserve
During the webinar, NAHB chief Economist David Crowe, NAHB chief economist, will break down complex concerns impacting the building industry. Robert Denk, NAHB’s assistant vice president for forecasting and analysis, will then present a state-by-state analysis of key areas such as housing prices, starts and employment.
Trulia Housing Economist Ralph McLaughlin will also join as a special guest. McLaughlin’s specialties include housing economics, land use and housing policy, and industrial geography.
Participants will be able to submit their questions online throughout the webinar.
