  • Haas NewsWire, January 22, 2002 CONTENTS HAAS HEADLINES HOUSING MARKET NOW A BUYER'S MARKET, ACCORDING TO NEW HAAS RESEARCH Severe job loss and a decline in household wealth have turned the Bay Area housing market into a buyer's market, a situation that is unlikely to change until 2003, according to the latest research by real estate professor Kenneth Rosen and research associate Amanda Bishop at the Haas School's Fisher Center for Real Estate & Urban Economics.
  • . Based on their report, "The San Francisco Bay Area Housing Market: A Buyer's Market, " Rosen and Bishop consider some economists' predictions of a speedy economic turnaround and a strong Bay Area housing market in 2002 "overly optimistic." The current economic climate has turned the Bay Area housing market into a buyer's market for the first time since the early 1990s.
  • . As Nasdaq plunged, not only did hundreds of so-called dot-com companies lay off their staffs, but traditional companies that benefited from the Internet boom were also forced to downsize as demand for their products and services fell sharply from unsustainable levels." Bishop and Rosen expect the Bay Area labor force to contract a further 1 to 1.5 percent in 2002.
