What Trends Exist in Regional Housing Market Data?

Renee Haltom and Pierre-Daniel G. Sarte

While analysts have devoted much attention to housing market performance at the national, state, and even local level, far less attention has been paid to housing markets at the regional level. We investigate how regional vacancies, population, net migration, and other demographic variables have affected regional housing activity over several recent business cycles.
