Summary Findings:

  • The 2020 COVID-19 driven recession will be deep, though the duration may be shorter than past recessions.
  • We expect that home sales will post an initial sharp decline as households and the real estate sector adhere to social distancing.
  • As measures implemented to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 are gradually lifted, we expect that low interest rates and pent-up demand will translate to a significant recovery in home sales and prices.
