March 2018: Economic and Real Estate Market Forecast

The real estate market is tied into consumer confidence and sentiment. That is why it’s important to track the consumer confidence survey. The Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index® decreased in March, following an increase in February. The Index now stands at 127.7 (1985=100), down from 130.0 in February. Consumers’ assessment of current conditions declined slightly, with business conditions the primary reason for the moderation. Overall expectations remain quite favorable. Despite the modest retreat in confidence, index levels remain historically high and suggest further strong growth for the economy (and real estate sales) in the months ahead.
