Investor Day Virtual Event Series 2021: Economic and Housing Market Update

Freddie Mac Single-Family CRT brings you an Economic and Housing Market Update with Sam Khater, Vice President and Chief Economist, Economic and Housing Research.

Originally presented during Freddie Mac’s 2021 Investor Day Virtual Event on June 8, the session delves into the details behind these key takeaways:

  • Economy is experiencing a surge in spending and growth, driven by re-openings, stimulus and organic improvement in economy
  • Growth remains uneven, choppy and hampered by still weak labor market
  • Inflation is accelerating and will continue to do so due to housing over next 1 to 2 years
  • Housing remains hot, but demand cooled & low inventory led to high home price growth - lack of supply remains a large obstacle in the housing market and will very slowly improve
  • Migration is highest in last few decades, many home buyers moving out of expensive coastal areas or downtown locations and to the suburbs
