Housing Outlook from the President of NAR

The National Association of REALTORS® annual convention was held earlier this month in Southern California.  This slide show was from the keynote speech by the President of the National Association.  His talk centered around how the housing industry fared in the past and what the economists are predicting for 2016.  Yes, there are challenges ahead for housing, like student loan debt, inventory shortages, and the high cost of rents . . . but the overall outlook is good.  Bottom line is that the large majority of Americans want to own their own home and believe real estate is a good long-term investment that will build wealth for them and their family.
