Trulia’s Chief Economist

For many, owning a home is part of the “American Dream.” But the new year and a new President brings a lot of uncertainty for both home buyers and sellers. One of the biggest questions: What will happen to the housing market once President-elect Trump takes office come January? Would the housing outlook be different if Hilary Clinton were elected President?

In this satellite interview, Trulia’s Chief Economist Ralph McLaughlin will discuss the results of Trulia’s 2017 Housing Outlook Survey. He’ll share how attitudes towards home buying have shifted since the election, and the biggest factors influencing homebuyer sentiment today. He’ll also discuss new data on renting versus buying, securing a mortgage, and what consumers perceive as the biggest obstacles to home ownership in the coming year.
