Home Ownership Affordability Monitor
This tool tracks the relative changes in home ownership affordability at a higher frequency and more granular level of geography than other current housing tools. It measures the ability of a median-income household to absorb the estimated annual costs associated with owning a median-priced home.
Southeastern Rental Affordability Tracker
Southeastern Rental Affordability Tracker
The data tool displays rental affordability trends in the Southeast using 2015 American Community Survey data. Users can visualize data and create profiles at different levels of geography. It depicts renter households that pay more than 30 percent or 50 percent of their income on rent (cost-burdened or severely cost-burdened households, respectively).
Construction & Real Estate Survey
Construction and Real Estate Survey
The Atlanta Fed conducted a monthly survey of residential brokers and homebuilders in an effort to detect emerging real estate trends prior to the release of official statistics. We also conducted a quarterly commercial construction survey of business contacts who work as general contractors, subcontractors, developers, financiers, and building material suppliers.
