6 Signs of a Market Rebound

No one can predict exactly when the commercial market will take a turn for the better, but we asked NAR's Chief Economist Lawrence Yun to tell us what ecomonic signs provide clues of a rebound.

When you see several of these signs, you can feel confident better times are on the way.

  1. The number of people filing for unemployment falls, and office net absorption begins to turn positive.
  2. Bank balance sheets stop showing nothing but losses, and interest rates on commercial mortgages and construction loans decline.
  3. Home prices stabilize. Housing’s recovery is critical to a sustained economic recovery.
  4. Consumer confidence rebounds. This is a key indicator for retailers.
  5. Companies begin hiring temporary workers. Temps are often the first step companies take when orders increase.
  6. REIT share prices rise. These stocks often lead a real property recovery.
