As we celebrate the achievements of our 2017 Crystal Ball winners, we also honor the memory of two
beloved men who enthusiastically supported our research efforts since our founding:
Karl Case and Esmael Adibi -- brilliant economists, inspirational educators, and wonderful human beings.
Chip and Essie, you are sorely missed.

These survey results are relevant to millions of individuals and thousands of institutions around the world. As recent years’ events have illustrated, changes in single-family home values can have profound impacts on consumer balance sheets, spending patterns, investor psychology, and global financial markets. Despite this importance, concrete information and authoritative opinion regarding expected future home prices tends to be sporadic and diffuse.

The survey data and our panelists stimulate constructive debate among consumers, institutions and policy makers regarding expected future changes in home prices - and their behavioral, policy, and risk management implications.
