It’s Now Harder To Buy A New Home: The Broken Housing Market

Selling Real Estate
New Home Shortage Continues and lack of construction… This is BAD for homebuyers. Home builders have NOT ramped up construction of new single family homes. Instead the number of multi-family home construction has skyrocketed. In today’s housing market update, I’m focusing on the new home industry and the headwinds builders and homebuyers are facing.

We need more homes to be available for sale in order to have a more balanced housing market. Part of that should come from an increase in home construction to build new homes. However, according to the US Census Bureau, August 2021 housing starts for single family homes decreased 2.8% from July and only increased 5.2% from Aug 2020. In addition, permits pulled by builders were flat from last month and last year. This makes it challenging about buying a new home.

The main challenges home builders are facing are building material supply chain and cost issues along with labor challenges. According to the most recent release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index, the prices of goods used as inputs to residential construction excluding energy have risen 12% YTD. Also even though lumber prices have been declining, other building materials have skyrocketed in price.

Check out this video that I made about my concerns with buying a new home:

To give you a quick mortgage interest rates update, according to the Mortgage News Daily the average 30yr fixed rate mortgage is 3.14% for the current mortgage rates (at the time of filming this video). This is mixed news if you’re a homebuyer right now or if you’re a homeowner looking to refinance.

Comment below: what’s your housing market 2021 forecast and housing market forecast 2021? Do you think a housing crash 2021 will happen and there will be a housing crash due to a housing bubble, a 2021 housing market crash 2021 or are your housing market predictions that the real estate market 2021 and home prices 2021 will continue to surge?
