Inforgraphic thumbnail about oil's impact on housing prices

Oil's Impact: How does $40 per barrel impact real estate values?

HouseCanary released a study today on the impact of recent oil price drops on the real estate market. In many markets, oil price changes are a leading indicator to housing value changes, but the impact varies based on the composition of the local economy. While some markets positively correlate and have a dampening effect on home prices (meaning when oil prices fall, it will slow the growth or potentially erode home prices), others negatively correlate and can be stimulated by falling oil prices.

Please contact JP Ackerman for more information.

Inforgraphic thumbnail about dispersion

Dispersion: De-Average to Find the Opportunity

"Dispersion" of price appreciation refers to the differences we see when we segment high versus low performing real estate markets. The changing market environment is causing dispersion of price appreciation to increase across metropolitan areas and within the submarkets that comprise them.

Within a geography it is critical for investors, appraisers and lenders to understand the submarket behavior and risks. This knowledge enables maximum return while managing downside risk.

The team at HouseCanary have built systematic analyses to forecast local pricing and market risk for 20,000+ submarkets across the United States. Now the savvy investors can effectively deploy capital with confidence, the real estate appraiser can embed risk into property valuation, and lenders can understand the inherent risks.

Please contact JP Ackerman for more information.
