Economic Indicators that can Impact Home Values

Gross Domestic Product: measures the output of goods and services.

If GDP grows too much, the Federal Reserve may intervene with higher interest rates to slow growth, thus decreasing the demand for financing.

If GDP slows, the Federal Reserve may intervene with lower interest rates to accelerate growth, thus increasing the demand for financing.

The cost of financing can impact the market values of homes.

Consumer Price Index: measures the change of price (rate of inflation) for a fixed market basket of consumer goods and services.

If the CPI increases more than expected, rates tend to move up. Likewise, if the CPI decreased more than expected, rates tend to move down.

Producer Price Index: measures the change of price for goods and supplies used in the products of consumer goods and services.

The increase of the PPI eventually is reflected in the price consumers pay for domestic products, which in turn increase CPI.

Employment: measures the level of employment and earnings estimate. The Unemployment indicator measures the level of unemployment.

Rising levels of employment put pressure on salary levels, which tends to be inflationary and can impact the rise of interest rates.

Housing Starts: measures the number of new housing permits.

New developments in an close proximity can put downward pressure on existing home values.
