Here Comes the Housing Inventory!!

20160615-Share-STM

Almost every real estate conversation revolves around the continuous rise in house values over the last four years. Some have even mentioned a concern about another possible bubble forming. However, the recent increase in prices can be attributed to a very simple principle: supply and demand.

在過去四年中,只要談到房地產,總是圍繞在房價不停上漲的話題,有些人甚至擔心起泡沫化的形成,然而,房價上漲其實可以歸因於一個非常簡單的原則:供給和需求。

DEMAND
需求

Demand for single-family housing has continued to increase as the economy slowly moves forward. Recent surveys have shown that over 80% of each generation still believes that homeownership is a part of the American Dream. And a recent Gallup survey showed that Americans believe that real estate is the best long-term investment.

隨著經濟環境的進步,獨立屋的需求也在慢慢增加,最近的調查顯示,80%以上的人仍然認為擁有自己的住房是夢想目標的其中之一,而最近的蓋洛普調查顯示,美國人認為房地產是最好的長期投資。

SUPPLY
供給

Over the last several years, many homeowners were unable to put their homes on the market for an assortment of reasons (family finances, no or limited equity in the home). There has been a pent-up supply of sellers who have wanted to move but couldn’t. Below is a graph depicting the number of years families have historically stayed in a home. We can see there is pent-up seller demand.

在過去的幾年中,許多屋主因為各種原因而無法把房屋放上市場出售(家庭經濟狀況,房屋價格沒有上漲或是上漲幅度不夠大),有許多想要搬家但卻又壓抑著無法行動的賣家,以下是一般家庭在一個房屋居住年數後搬家的曲線圖,我們可以看到近期有較多這種過去幾年壓抑需求的賣家。

As the economy improves and more families reach the point of significant equity (20%), we will see these homes come to market. As supply then matches demand, the acceleration of home price increases will begin to slow.

隨著經濟好轉,更多的家庭住屋達到顯著的房屋價值漲幅(20%),我們預計會看到更多房屋上市出售,住房價格上漲的速度將開始放緩。

Bottom Line
結論

If you are one of the families that have been chained to your current home over the last 5-7 years, now may be the time to break free and find the home of your dreams.
