According to the sources of Keeping It Matters (NAR, Freddie Mac, Pew Research, First American), today’s competitive sellers’ market is the direct result of high demand and low supply.

Buyer demand is one of the important factors that will help the sellers to determine how fast their home will sell and how many buyers may be competing for it. When buyers have to compete with each other for a limited supply of available homes, bidding wars make the prices of the homes up.

Demand is High

  • Historically low mortgage rates
  • The pandemic and working remotely changed what many people need in a home
  • The largest generation, Millennials, are aging into peak home-buying age

Supply is Low

  • Insufficient new housing construction for more than a decade
  • People were hesitant to sell during the pandemic
  • Less turnover as Americans choose to stay in their homes longer

Some Highlights

Low mortgage rates and generational trends have created an increased demand for homes. Meanwhile, the slower pace of new home construction and homeowners staying in their homes longer have both led to today’s low supply.

High demand and low supply are the cause of driving up home prices in today’s hot housing market.
