TRACK THE TRENDS
The UAW strike hits home(s)
Cars aren’t the only big ticket item that stands to be impacted by the United Auto Workers strike. According to Redfin, this historic strike—the first targeting the three biggest domestic automakers simultaneously—has the potential to affect local home prices, inventory levels, and even the federal interest rate.
Key strike regions, like Michigan, Ohio, and Missouri, could see a real estate slowdown as workers and plants lose income, and demand at supporting businesses slows.
Rising car prices serve as fuel for inflation, which may motivate the already hike-happy Fed to continue raising interest rates.
With the UAW threatening to expand the strike if no agreement is reached today, this ongoing strike may be the biggest real estate market disruptor of late 2023—creating once-a-year opportunities for both buyers and agents.
