This is why Housing Sales Matter to our Economy

In a study by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) to determine the impact a single home sale has on the economy. They included data compiled by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Census Bureau, Macroeconomic Advisors and the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard. After reviewing the information, they determined the total economic impact of a typical home sale in the United States is an astonishing $56,464!

This figure contributed economically to things such as home construction, real estate brokerages, mortgage lending, title insurance, rental & leasing, home appraisals, and moving truck services.

When a House is Sold in the United States:

$14,958 – Income generated from real estate related industries

Home sales turn into money for the economy

$5,647 – Additional expenditure on consumer items such as on furniture, appliances, and paint service

$3,509 – Expenditure on remodeling within 2 years of purchase

It also generates an economic multiplier impact. There is a greater spending at restaurants, sports games, and charity events. The size of this “multiplier” effect is estimated to be:$11,575

Home sales induce additional new homes being built. Typically one new home is constructed for every 8 existing home sales. Therefore, for each existing home sale, 1/8 of new home value is added to the economy which is estimated in the U.S. to be:$20,775

This study was done on a national level, where home prices and the cost of living is less than in southern California. San Diego home prices are also well more than double the national average. While the above figures only cover nationally average numbers to come up with $56,464, the economic impact for a place like San Diego would be far more!
