Lack of Inventory Challenging Many Housing Markets | Simplifying The Market
[:en]Going into the 2016 spring market, the biggest challenge the real estate industry has is the lack of available housing inventory for sale. Here are a few experts and their thoughts on the subject:

David Crowe, Chief Economist for the National Association of Home Builders:

“Many sellers may not have an absolute decision as to whether to buy an existing home or a new home. So the low inventory of existing homes is locking them in place.”

Ralph McLaughlin, Chief Economist with Trulia:

“We are in a time of short supply, which is great news for sellers because they will likely be faced with multiple offers due to the little inventory out there…Buyers will be up against a lot of other people and against a short supply of existing homes.”

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist with NAR:

“First-time buyers in high demand areas continue to encounter instances where their offer is trumped by cash buyers and investors. Without a much-needed boost in new and existing-homes for sale in their price range, their path to homeownership will remain an uphill climb.”

Fitch Ratings:

“One important issue that has restrained sales and starts is inventory. On an absolute basis, inventory has not expanded as much as in past recoveries, leading to less selection for buyers. This is especially true for existing home sales but is evident for new home construction as well. When it comes to U.S. housing inventory, more is better.” 

Jonathan Smoke, Chief Economist for Realtor.com:

“The increase in sales is resulting in continued tighter-than-tight supply—measured by NAR to be four months in January.  For you non-economists out there, that metric measures the number of months it would take to sell the current inventory of available homes, at the current pace. Got it? Six to seven months’ worth of homes on the market is considered normal; four months is cray-cray.”

David Crowe, Economista principal de la Asociación Nacional de Constructores:

“Muchos vendedores tal vez no tengan una decisión firme en cuanto a si comprar una casa ya existente o una casa nueva. Así que el inventario bajo de casas ya existentes los está manteniendo en un sitio”.  

Ralph McLaughlin, Economista principal con Trulia:

“Estamos en una época de escasez de inventario, lo que es una buena noticia para los vendedores porque ellos probablemente se enfrentarán a ofertas múltiples debido al poco inventario que hay… los compradores se enfrentaran a muchas otras personas y contra la escasez del suministro de casas ya existentes”.

Lawrence Yun, Economista principal con NAR:

“Los compradores por primera vez en áreas de alta demanda continuarán presentándose a situaciones donde su oferta es superada por los compradores con efectivo o inversionistas. Sin un muy necesario impulso de casas nuevas y ya existentes para la venta en su rango de precio, su camino hacia el ser propietario de casa será cuesta arriba”.

Fitch Ratings:

“Un asunto importante que ha refrenado las ventas y los inicios de construcción es el inventario. Sobre una base absoluta, el inventario no se ha expandido tanto como en recuperaciones pasadas, llevando a menos selección para los compradores. Esto es especialmente cierto para las ventas de casas ya existentes, pero es evidente para la construcción de viviendas nuevas también. Cuando se trata del inventario de la vivienda en Estados Unidos, más es mejor”.

Jonathan Smoke, Economista principal para Realtor.com:

“El incremento en las ventas está resultando en un continuo suministro apretado – medido por NAR para cuatro meses en enero. Para usted que no es economista, esa métrica mide el número de meses que puede tomar el vender el inventario actual de casas disponibles para la venta, al ritmo actual. ¿Entiende? Las casas para la venta para seis a siete meses se le considera normal; cuatro meses es un poco loco”. [:]
