Housing and the Economy: A First Look at 2014

John Tuccillo is one of the foremost real estate economists in the United States. His presentations on the economic outlook, real estate markets and change in the real estate business are invariably witty, informative and accessible to both lay and professional audiences. With the recent resurgence of the real estate market and the somewhat sluggish growth of the economy as a whole, the question arises as to what is leading and what is trailing. Will the real estate revival spur on the economy, or will the economy hold back the real estate market?
