What Cities May Be Headed For a Housing Crisis?

It's difficult to predict with certainty which cities may be headed for a housing crisis, as it can be influenced by various factors such as population growth, supply and demand, economic conditions, and government policies. However, some cities that are currently facing housing affordability challenges and may be at risk of a housing crisis include:

  1. San Francisco, California - The city is known for its high cost of living and limited housing supply, which has led to a severe shortage of affordable housing.

  2. New York City, New York - The city has seen an influx of new residents in recent years, driving up housing demand and prices. The pandemic has also added to the affordability crisis.

  3. Los Angeles, California - Similar to San Francisco, Los Angeles faces high demand and a limited housing supply, particularly for affordable housing.

  4. Seattle, Washington - The city has seen rapid population growth and an increase in housing prices, leading to the displacement of low-income residents.

  5. Denver, Colorado - Denver has experienced a surge in population and housing demand, but a limited supply of affordable housing has caused housing costs to skyrocket.

  6. Miami, Florida - The city has seen a surge of new residents, which has led to an increase in housing demand and prices, particularly in the luxury market.

  7. Austin, Texas - Rapid population growth and limited housing supply have caused affordability challenges for many residents.

  8. Toronto, Canada - Toronto is Canada's largest city and has seen housing prices increase rapidly, making it difficult for many residents to afford a home.

It's worth noting that the factors contributing to a potential housing crisis can change quickly, and cities that are currently stable could face challenges in the future.

Here in CT we have seen a large influx of New Yorkers looking to get away from the crunch and enjoy space.

We in Denver have seen a HUGE increase in home values over the last 2-3 years and saw a much slower market since March.   We have little inventory, so it could start again.

In Arizona, Californians are our number one legal influx origination area from our Western border. Years ago, it was legal Canadiens from the North although many were/are part year residents. No accurate numbers seem to be available to the public for the population influx from our southern border.
