Housing price projections moving forward from Parker Associates.

New Home Price Projections

New Home Price Projections In preparing revenue projections for budget planning, many builders rely upon past trends to forecast price increases for future years. This method turns out to be very misleading after the enormous price fluctuations of 2004-2011. A ten year trend of average price changes from 2001-2010 produces an overall average of 2.7 percent, whereas the ten years of steady growth from 1994 through 2003 provides an overall average of 4.7 percent (median of 4.4 percent) – a 74 percent differential, within a range of 3-6 percent. The 1994-2003 period following the recession of 1990-91 is a reasonable model for recovery from the 2007-09 recession despite the lingering […]

Housing Outlook

Housing Outlook NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe indicated that the building industry soon should be seeing tangible signs of improvement. Speaking at the Annual Construction Forecast Conference in April, Crowe cited positive factors such as affordability, favorable mortgage rates, tiny inventories of newly-built homes, declining vacancy rates, and pent-up demand caused by delayed household formations. “By the end of 2012, I expect new-home sales and starts to be back to where they were around the beginning of the recession in late 2007,” Crowe stated.

Urban Sprawl is one of the professional expertises of Parker Associates.

SPRAWL, A New Definition

DEFINITION OF SPRAWL.. Over the past few years, many writers have confused urban development sprawl with density – the lower the density, the greater the sprawl.  Others have simply used sprawl to describe any type of urban development they personally find distasteful.  The word has become a cliché for a wide variety of urban conditions without specific definition. Webster’s Dictionary describes sprawl as “to spread or develop irregularly” —  a definition that applies to a great many urban areas at any density.  The linear blight caused by major city streets suffering from unregulated peripheral development, both old and new, is likely to be accepted by most observers as fitting the […]
