For Week Ending July 2, 2016

The United Kingdom vote for exit from the European Union (Brexit) has likely already had at least one short-term effect on the U.S. housing market. The decision to not raise interest rates until later this year was likely made because of Brexit, so unrest in financial markets can be watched further with hopes of stabilization. Long-term effects may include more or less foreign investment in U.S. residential real estate, but wholesale price declines are not expected any time soon.
