U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Policy Development and Research

Due to the large number of housing units and businesses that sustained damage, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Economic and Market Analysis Division (EMAD) is unable, at this time, to produce any estimates of the demand for additional sales or rental housing within Puerto Rico during the next 3 years. This report will serve as a baseline report of the housing market conditions that existed at the time of the hurricane impacts and will be used by HUD to gauge the progress of the recovery efforts. EMAD will produce another report on the commonwealth in the near future that will discuss the impacts of the hurricanes and provide a forecast of housing needs, as the commonwealth recovers from this natural disaster.
