Inside the “Savagely Unhealthy” U.S. Housing Market

A record inventory shortage has created what some are calling a housing bubble and is driving feeding-frenzy-like bidding wars for listings. HousingWire Lead Analyst Logan Mohtashami talks to Real Vision’s Ash Bennington about an intensifying U.S. housing crisis. The market right now, as Mohtashami sees it, is “the unhealthiest” it’s been since 2010. Hopeful buyers and current renters are in tight spots, but homeowners are sitting pretty with a convenient hedge against inflation, he notes. Mohtashami addresses common misconceptions about the housing market, including the idea that increased construction will solve the shortage. He also speculates on what an inverted yield curve might mean for the sector. Recorded March 31, 2022.
