Recession ≠ Correction ≠ Crash

Recession ≠ Correction ≠ Crash

In the last 10 years, home builders have been busy.

Housing starts (2010-21)

But, housing supply doesn’t have a cartel like oil suppliers have OPEC.

So, most builders & many city councils got overzealous & overbuilt inventory.

As a result, months of supply from new construction is >400% that of resale units!

Months of Supply: New vs. Existing Homes (2010-22)

So now, builders are stopping new projects while trying to sell off current projects.

Housing Market Index (2010-22)

Once builders start trimming jobs en masse, construction will see a housing-related recession.

And since construction jobs are a material part of overall jobs, we could a national headline recession as well.

Home Price Growth: 2022 & 2023 Forecast

Home Prices: 1920-2022 & 2022-25 Forecast

Overall Inventory (1982-2022)

Inventory: New & Existing Homes (1982-2022)

Supply from resales will keep decreasing because 90% of mortgage holders have a <5% mortgage. Most will become a landlord instead of selling their home.

Homeownership Rate (1940-2022)

Mortgage Credit Availability Index (2004-22)

Median Days on Market (2015-22)


Homes Sold (YTD 2008-22)

Markets facing a possible 5% price correction by 2023

Why? Some cities have massively overbuilt housing inventory.

3 interventions from the federal government:

  1. Pare or reduce benchmark rates
  2. Resume QE of RMBS
  3. Resume mortgage forbearance

This will protect housing equity by sacrificing debt.

And, then, we’ll see another spike in home prices.
