The housing shortage

The housing shortage

We’re seeing this locally as well, but as the historic trend shows, it will come back.

There’s a shortage of homes on the market, and it’s driving up house prices and rents, especially for average earners living in high-cost markets. This is the big takeaway from Harvard’s massive study from the Joint Center for Housing Studies released recently on the state of the nation’s housing market. The gist is that the housing market is constrained by production that has been below historical levels for more than a decade.
