The supply of available housing is so low that even a significant drop in demand due to higher interest rates will not turn this into a housing market for the buyer, according to industry experts. The Mortgage Credit Availability Index (MCAI) fell as a result of the housing market crash, as it became almost difficult to obtain mortgage financing.
And most first-time buyers are under 40, which means the buyer pool is deep, a good indication that demand will remain strong, especially given home inventory is at record lows. Current trends and the forecast for the next 12 to 24 months clearly show that the housing market will most likely be expected to remain strong, and many of the trends that drove real estate to new heights last year remain strong this year as well.
