Homes: Demand vs Supply

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Rummy Dhanoa Real Estate Experts

Despite the forecasts of mortgage rate rise, demand for homes has continuously outnumbered its supply. Let's find out why.

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the inventory of homes for sale "has fallen year-over-year for 36 consecutive months," and now stands at a 4.1-month supply. A 6-month supply of inventory is necessary for a balanced market and has not been seen since August of 2012.

NAR’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun had this to say, Is There Any Relief Coming? According to the CoreLogic's 2018 Consumer Housing Sentiment Study, four times as many renters are considering buying homes in the next 12 months than homeowners who are planning to sell, "which is the crux of the available housing-supply imbalance." As more and more renters realize the benefits of homeownership, the demand for housing will continue to rise. ​

Do homeowners realize demand is so high? With home prices rising across the country, homeowners gained over a trillion dollars in equity over the last 12 months, with the average homeowner gaining over $16,000! ​

The map below shows the breakdown by state: Many homeowners who have not thought about listing their homes may not even realize how much equity they have gained, or the opportunity available to them in today's market! ​

If you are one of the many homeowners across the country who hasn't quite found their forever home, now may be a great time to list your house for sale and find your dream home!
