In our roundup of experts reading the tea leaves of 2016, we again consult with Calculated Risk and where they think home prices will go in 2016.
Yesterday, we reviewed their guess for inventory in 2016, so this discussion will mesh very well with yesterdays show.
We are also going to spend some time today talking about employment. However, we will be revisiting a point I was trying to make a long while back regarding the effects of automation on unemployment. Some recent news stories pointed out items that showed that self driving cars and automation continue to be evolving into the next big thing in terms of how jobs get done. Since a huge percentage of the jobs that have been created over the last few years are the kinds that would lend themselves to being done through automation, keeping an eye on the progress of this movement toward more automation is a good idea, after all if you want a healthy real estate market you need healthy employment. As always, we will take all this and try to figure out what it should mean for buyers, sellers investors and real estate entrepreneurs!
