Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies Projects Continued, But Slowing Growth in Remodeling Activity



The Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University (JCHS) reported that growth in home improvement activity is expected to peak during the second half of 2014 and then begin to ease heading into next year, according to its Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) figure. For 2014, the LIRA projects annual gains in home improvement spending of 9.9 percent with annual growth slowing to 7.0 percent in the first quarter of 2015.

LIRA is designed to estimate national homeowner spending on improvements for the current quarter as well as the three quarters. The indicator, measured as an annual rate-of-change of its components, provides a short-term outlook of homeowner remodeling activity and is intended to help identify future turning points in the business cycle of the home improvement industry. Forward-looking projections are produced by the Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity, while all historical data are JCHS tabulations of the Census Bureau's C-30 series (The Value of Construction Put in Place Survey, which provides monthly estimates of the total dollar value of construction work done in the U.S.).
