The western US housing market is undergoing dramatic changes.
A shortage of housing inventory, especially affordable single family dwellings, continues to constrain many real estate markets on the west coast. New home construction volume has risen, but is still a fraction of the pre-market crisis. Interest rates are also trending higher, thus making homes more expensive for both new build and renovation. In addition, the building process is more complicated than buying ready-made. With today’s fragmented process with land developers, architects, builders, lenders and realtors, it is no wonder that the market is not moving as fast as we’d like.
