Freddie Mac March 2015 U.S. Economic and Housing Market Outlook

Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) released today its U.S. Economic and Housing Market Outlook for March, highlighting some of the positive tailwinds at the start of the spring homebuying season. A video preview, along with the complete March 2015 U.S. Economic and Housing Market Outlook and forecast table, is available here.

Outlook Highlights

Expect 2015 to be the best year for home sales and new home construction since 2007 when total home sales were about 5.8 million for the year.

Improved job prospects have started to drive those aged 25-34 back to the labor force, with 76.8 percent employed as of last month, up from 75.9 percent last year.

Expect rising rents at or above inflation in 2015 to push more would-be homeowners into the market. Rents increased an average of 3.6 percent in 2014 and nearly 11 percent over the last three years.

Due to some recent upward pressure on Treasury bond yields, the 2015 forecast for the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was increased slightly to at 4.0 percent for the year.
