The Federal Reserve Bank of New York will release findings from its February 2021 Survey of Consumer Expectations (SCE) Housing Survey on Monday, April 5, 2021 at 11 AM EDT.
The SCE Housing Survey, which has been fielded annually in February since 2014, is part of the broader Survey of Consumer Expectations. The survey provides rich and high-quality information on consumers’ experiences, behaviors, and expectations related to housing. The survey collects data on households’ home price growth perceptions and expectations; intentions regarding moving and buying a home in the future; and perceptions of credit conditions.
In conjunction with the survey findings, the New York Fed will publish a Liberty Street Economics blog post using data from the SCE Housing Survey to understand whether households view housing as a good investment choice in comparison to other financial assets, any cross-sectional variations in preferences for housing as an investment including gender and education, and what factors households consider when making an investment choice.
