Economic Impact of a Home Sale

As businesses around the country move through the various phases of reopening, it’s important to understand how housing can have a major impact on the recovery of the U.S. economy. Buying a home is a driving financial force in this process. Today, many analysts believe one of the first things we’ll be able to safely bring back is the home building sector, creating more jobs and impacting local neighborhoods in a big way. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) notes the impact new construction can have on the job market: “Building 1,000 average single-family homes creates 2,900 full-time jobs and generates $110.96 million in taxes and fees for all levels of government to support police, firefighters and schools, according to NAHB’s National Impact of Home Building and Remodeling report.” These employment opportunities, along with the home purchase, are a huge win for the economy. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently shared a report that notes the full economic impact of new and existing home sales. The report shows the average economic impact of the sale of an existing home is $43,099. Given the sheer number of workers it requires to design, build, equip, and finalize the sale of the house, the impact more than doubles to $88,416 for a newly built home.
