Home buyers looking at homes for sale

The housing shortage is affecting some people and areas harder than others

In today's real estate market, an unexpected issue has emerged, one that is directly affecting a large segment of potential homebuyers. Despite a noticeable slowdown due to increasing mortgage rates, there's an undeniable shortage in the supply of homes for sale, a sharp contrast to the state of the market in 2019.

This housing shortage is affecting some segments more than others. In particular, homebuyers with an annual income around $100,000, slightly above the national average, are feeling the squeeze.

Home Sold With Multiple Offers Sign

The Federal Reserve intensified its fight against inflation in June by announcing the biggest interest rate increase in 28 years as the government's main lending institution tries to rein in skyrocketing consumer costs.

The increase is due to growing prices for rent, groceries, gasoline, and a variety of other goods and services. Higher interest rates will increase the cost of carrying a credit card bill, obtaining a vehicle loan, and purchasing a home.

Five Reasons Experts Say No Housing Market Crash in 2022

It may be hard to believe, but the South Florida real estate market is quickly approaching the conclusion of its second full calendar year of record-shattering pace. Homes and condos are still selling nearly as quickly as they were at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and setting new highs along the way. 

With respect to Mr. Gordon Gekko, many real estate experts and economists—not to mention home buyers and sellers—aren’t convinced that all this greed is good. Headlines abound regarding a potential housing crash which would rival that of the late ‘00s.
