  • 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
    • The economy and housing markets have been affected by rapid inflation in 2021 and 2022.
    • In the Midwest region, economic growth is slowing compared with the relatively rapid gains a year ago, but growth continues at a faster rate compared with the 2010s.
    • Rising home mortgage interest rates in 2022 affected the home sales market, with fewer homes sold and fewer homes listed for sale.
      • Sales market conditions are currently slightly tight, but easing from tight to very tight conditions a year ago.
    • The apartment markets in the eight largest metropolitan areas in the region are mixed, with conditions ranging from slightly tight to slightly soft.
      • Compared with a year ago, the regionwide apartment vacancy rate increased from a 2-decade low, and rent growth slowed from the fastest gain in more than a decade.
