The Pulse on Housing
According to Freddie Mac, the number of single-family starter homes built in 2020 was just 20% of the number of those constructed annually throughout the 1970s and 1980s. As a result, the current nationwide housing deficit is estimated to be between 3.8 and 6.0 million units.
An analysis by Metlife investment management indicates that institutional investors may control 40% of U.S. single-family rental homes by 2030. This creates a backdrop for continued home price appreciation.
Despite a recent uptick in interest rate expectations, mortgage rates have seen little change. This reflects the fact that inflation is cooling and consumers have healthy balance sheets to finance home purchases.
