2021 Housing Market Forecast

Record low rates have fueled an origination boom, driving a banner year for refis. But how long will those low rates last, and what is happening in the larger economy that will affect next year’s origination strategy? Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s Vice President and Chief Economist, shares his housing market forecast for 2021 and beyond.
