WEST CHESTER, Pa.--()--Moody’s Analytics, a leading provider of economic analysis, announced today that it has received a Crystal Ball award for the accuracy of its US home price forecasts.

The Crystal Ball award is given annually by Pulsenomics®, an independent economics research and consulting firm. The award recognizes the most accurate forecasts from among the more than 100 economists, investment strategists, and housing market analysts who take part in the Zillow® Home Price Expectations Survey, a five-year forecast of US home prices.

This year’s award recognizes Moody’s Analytics for its 2012 US home price forecasts, which proved the most accurate for both two-year (2015 – 2016) and three-year (2014 – 2016) time periods.

Moody’s Analytics has won four Crystal Ball awards since the rankings began in 2010.

“We’re honored to receive this award for the accuracy of our forecasts,” said Andres Carbacho-Burgos, Director-Economic Research, who leads the team responsible for Moody’s Analytics’ housing forecasts. “Our clients depend on our high-quality, consistent, and transparent analyses to provide the insights they need to manage their businesses.”

Moody’s Analytics forecasts US house prices on a monthly basis under baseline and multiple-stress scenarios. In addition, it produces forecasts covering national and regional economies as well as various asset classes.

“Well-calibrated housing sector forecasts are more important than ever, as more than a decade of volatility in housing markets makes clear,” said Terry Loebs, Founder of Pulsenomics. “Earning one of our coveted Crystal Ball awards has, in turn, become that much more challenging. Pulsenomics is pleased to honor the outstanding performance of Moody’s Analytics.”
