  • Regional Housing Market Data and Analysis
    Regional Narratives are published quarterly for each of HUD’s ten regions. Each narrative provides an overview of economic and housing market trends within the region. The reports contain an analysis of the year over year change in several key variables: nonfarm payrolls by sector, the unemployment rate, home sales, home prices, foreclosure data, vacancy rates, rents, and building permit activity. Current sales market and rental market conditions in major metropolitan areas are also discussed.
  • Regional Housing Market Conditions Narrative
    During the first quarter of 2022, the economy of the Midwest region continued to recover from the brief, but severe, job losses during early 2020 that came as a result of efforts to curtail the spread of COVID-19. Nonfarm payroll jobs rose for the fourth consecutive quarter on a year-over-year basis, a string of job gains that began during the second quarter of 2020, following year-over-year job losses from the second quarter of 2020 through the first quarter of 2021. Nevertheless, jobs in the Midwest region remain at only 98 percent of the level averaged during the first quarter of 2019, and 6 of 10 HUD regions have recovered more payroll jobs than the Midwest region. The ongoing recovery from the severe job losses during 2020 contributed to continuing tight to very tight sales housing market conditions. Home sales and prices rose in each Midwest region state, but regional price gains were below the national average. Apartment markets in larger metropolitan areas throughout the region are balanced to slightly tight and generally tighter than a year ago, when the COVID-19 pandemic was impacting local economies. Downtown submarkets in the region have recovered from soft conditions a year earlier. Asking apartment rents rose, and vacancy rates declined in all eight apartment markets cited in this report.
    • Slower job growth compared with the national average and declining international net in-migration resulted in Midwest region population growth that trailed the national average and was lower than the rates in 9 of 10 HUD regions.
    • Relatively tight sales housing market conditions contributed to increased single-family home permitting, and although single-family homes permitted in the Midwest region during the first quarter of 2022 were lower than during the first quarter of 2021, it is still the second-highest number of homes permitted, in any first quarter, since at least 2011.
    • Balanced to slightly tight apartment market conditions in major apartment markets in the Midwest region contributed to an increase in multifamily units permitted during the first quarter of 2022 compared with a year earlier and the highest first quarter permitting total in recent history.
