Here at Zillow, we’re always looking to our extensive housing data to find out how market conditions are affecting buyers, sellers, renters and homeowners. Now, with Election Day around the corner, we’re looking at housing data and how it might affect the outcome of some of the most hotly-contested Congressional elections.

Earlier this month, we broke down our housing data by Congressional district, and Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Stan Humphries looked at districts where incumbents were up for re-election.

Here, I’ve called out some of the most hotly-contested races in Congress. According to RealClearPolitics.com, polls show these are among the races that are still toss-ups: they could go either way. Will housing conditions be a factor in tipping the balance in these races? Will voters in markets with more stable housing trends be more likely to re-elect incumbents, or stick with the sitting party? How big of a factor will housing be for you when you cast your vote?
