Fannie Mae (OTCQB: FNMA) has entered a partnership with Pulsenomics LLC, an independent research and consulting firm, to produce the quarterly Home Price Expectations Survey (HPES) beginning this month.
The HPES polls over 100 housing experts across the industry and academia for forecasts of national home price percentage changes in each of the coming five calendar years. On a quarterly basis, Fannie Mae will publish the survey results, including respondent feedback on topical questions designed to help inform the broader housing industry.
“For Pulsenomics, this partnership represents the opening of an exciting new chapter in the life of our nearly 15-year survey research effort,” said Terry Loebs, founder of Pulsenomics. “We look forward to collaborating with Fannie Mae in the coming years to enrich our survey with their robust housing data and analytics, and to enhance the visibility of the unique insights that our esteemed expert panel members share with us every quarter.”
“We’re excited to partner with Pulsenomics to add the Home Price Expectations Survey to our suite of economic and housing research products, particularly given our ESR Group’s ongoing participation as a respondent,” said Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae senior vice president and chief economist. “We remain committed to providing the public with accurate, reliable, and timely data and market analysis that better enables industry stakeholders to make informed decisions. Partnering with Pulsenomics on the HPES, which polls highly respected economists and experts across the industry, functions as a useful bookend to the Fannie Mae Home Price Index and will enable us to serve the markets by providing data on both past and expected future home price changes.”
