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.

These 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.

- Homeowner demand for home equity investment (HEI) contracts and institutional appetite for rated HEI-backed securities
