[:en]Lack of Listings Slowing Down the Housing Market[:es]La falta de casas para la venta está desacelerando el mercado de la vivienda[:]

[:en]The housing crisis is finally in the rear view mirror as the real estate market moves down the road to a complete recovery. Home values are up. Home sales are up. Distressed sales (foreclosures and short sales) have fallen dramatically. It seems that 2016 will be the year that the housing market again races forward.

However, there is one thing that may cause the industry to tap the brakes: a lack of housing inventory. While buyer demand looks like it will remain strong throughout this winter, supply is not keeping up.

Here are the thoughts of a few industry experts on the subject:

Calculated Risk:

“Low inventory is probably holding down sales in many areas.”

Capital Economics:

“A lack of housing inventory continues to drive developments in the market. As demand has slowly recovered, low inventory levels have weighed on home sales.”

Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic:

“Many markets have experienced a low inventory of homes for sale along with strong buyer demand… These conditions are likely to persist as we enter 2016.”

Doug Duncan,Chief Economist at Fannie Mae:

“Several factors point to constrained housing affordability in 2016, particularly for first-time home buyers, including slow single-family supply response and limited inventory of starter homes on the market.”

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR:

“Sparse inventory and affordability issues continue to impede a large pool of buyers’ ability to buy, which is holding back sales.”

Bottom Line

If you are thinking of selling, now may be the time. Demand for your house will be strong at a time when there is very little competition. That could lead to a quick sale for a really good price.[:es]La crisis de la vivienda está finalmente en el espejo retrovisor a medida que el mercado de bienes raíces continúa en el camino a la recuperación. Los valores de la vivienda han incrementado, las ventas de las casas han aumentado y las ventas de las propiedades en subasta (ejecuciones hipotecarias y ventas por menos de la deuda) han caído drásticamente. Parece que 2016 va a ser el año que el mercado de la vivienda avanza de nuevo.

Sin embargo, hay una cosa que puede hacer que la industria pise los frenos: la falta de inventario de la vivienda. Mientras que la demanda de los compradores parece continuar fuerte a través del invierno, el suministro no está manteniendo el ritmo.

Aquí están las reflexiones de algunos expertos en la industria sobre este tema:

Calculated Risk:

“El abastecimiento bajo esta probablemente manteniendo bajas las ventas en muchas áreas”.

Capital Economics:

“La falta de inventario de la vivienda continúa impulsando el desarrollo del mercado. mientras que la demanda se ha recuperado lentamente, los niveles bajos de inventario han pesado en las ventas de las casas”.

Frank Nothaft, Economista principal de CoreLogic:

“muchos mercados han experimentado un inventario bajo de casas para la venta junto con una demanda de los compradores fuerte…estas condiciones probablemente persistan al entrar en 2016”.

Doug Duncan, Economista principal de Fannie Mae:

“Muchos factores apuntan a una asequibilidad limitada de la vivienda en 2016, particularmente para los compradores de casa por primera vez. Incluyendo una lenta adaptación del suministro de viviendas unifamiliares y un inventario limitado de los inicios de casas nuevas en el mercado”.

Lawrence Yun, Economista principal de NAR:

“El inventario disperso y los problemas de asequibilidad siguen impidiendo que un gran grupo de compradores puedan comprar, lo que está retrasando las ventas”.

En conclusión

Si usted está pensando en vender, ahora tal vez es el momento. La demanda por su casa será fuerte en un momento cuando hay muy poca competencia. Eso podría conducir a una venta rápida por un muy buen precio.[:]
