Industry SWOT Analysis

The industry is exposed to the following threats and opportunities:

  • The 30-year conventional mortgage is the most common type of loan for home purchases. When mortgage rates are low, consumers can obtain loans to purchase homes at more affordable rates. As consumers purchase homes, demand for moving services will grow, bolstering industry revenue. The 30-year conventional mortgage rate is expected to increase in 2019, and could pose a potential threat to the industry.
  • Existing home sales measure the sales of residential property. When existing home sales increase, homeowners require this industry’s services to move into new homes. As a result, industry revenue increases when existing home sales grow. In 2019, existing home sales are expected to increase, representing a potential opportunity for this industry.
