The Essential Conversation

Why Rising Rates Are Good News for the U.S. Housing Market

Buyers are still competing hard to buy homes, creating the biggest affordability hit in our lifetime.

Featuring Logan Mohtashami and Ash Bennington

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic two and a half years ago sent U.S. housing prices sky-rocketing. Even now, with mortgage rates doubling since the start of the year, the median home price was up 15% year over year in May. It’s still an extremely hot market, with prospective buyers regularly engaging in bidding wars. And competition is now driving rental prices higher too. Logan Mohtashami, lead analyst at HousingWire, returns to Real Vision to provide an update on this still “savagely unhealthy” housing market. In conversation with Ash Bennington, Mohtashami explains why a 40-year low in U.S. inventory is the root cause of the problem and argues that rising rates are ultimately a good thing, even if it does short-term damage. Logan and Ash talk about the psychological, demographic, and societal impacts traceable to the housing market. And Logan shares his outlook for the U.S. housing market over the coming months and years. Recorded on June 30, 2022. Show More
