The online survey, conducted in July 2008 by researchers from the Keller Center at Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business, asked 840 economists their opinions on several matters related to the housing market. Topics addressed included expected future mortgage interest rates, reasons for buying and owning a home, and anticipated trends in future home prices and numbers of sales.
