The FedTalk series brings the Cleveland Fed together with industry experts, local businesses, community organizations, policymakers, and engaged citizens to discuss issues affecting the communities and people we serve.
Making Sense of Eviction Trends during the Pandemic
One year after the Center for Disease Control's moratorium on evictions was lifted, we revisit evictions and the rental market to learn who is still struggling and why. Rents are substantially higher in most American cities than before the pandemic, and eviction filings have largely returned to pre-pandemic trends. What challenges do landlords and tenants face today and what strategies are they using to overcome them?
Building on his research, “Making Sense of Eviction Trends,” Policy Economist Hal Martin is joined by panelists Dimitri Hatzifotinos and Hazel Remesch to discuss evictions, the state of the rental market and what to expect going forward.
