  • Regional Housing Market Data and Analysis
    Regional Narratives are published quarterly for each of HUDā€™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 in the Midwest region continues to recover from the initial shock and changes to work, travel, and consumer spending that began in March 2020 when the World Health Organization (WHO), declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. Restrictions intended to slow the spread of the virus by reducing the frequency of in-person interactions contributed to a sharp contraction in the economy during the second quarter of 2020. During the third quarter of 2020, the economy regained some of the jobs lost, as restrictions eased. Rising or elevated case counts since October have slowed the economic recovery during the fourth quarter of 2020 because consumers and businesses continue to limit in-person interactions. The sales housing market in the Midwest region has tightened from a year ago partially because the inventory of homes for sale is at the lowest level in more than a decade. In addition, the average home sales price rose at the fastest rate in more than 15 years. Historically low mortgage interest rates and the increased use of telework have partially incentivized homebuying. Conditions in the apartment market remain mixed. In the highest cost major metropolitan areas in the region, conditions have softened, whereas conditions remain balanced or slightly tight in more moderate cost areas.
