 Recession or not? Outlook on the Boston real estate market

We’ll get two decent-sized reports on the economy today, which will give investors a good idea of whether there’s a recession coming or not. A better-than-feared reading on the manufacturing economy on yesterday soothed investors recession concerns a bit. More readings in the right direction could put to bed the recession fears ( that I still have).

The S&P/Case-Shiller’s home price index is up first today and then later in the morning, the Conference Board’s consumer confidence survey. Economists polled by Dow Jones expect home prices nationally rose 3.1% year-over-year, but that consumer confidence eased a bit this month to 132.7 from 135.1 in August.
