Current housing inventory shortage and how it is affecting your ability to get a loan

Since the housing sector shortage has been worsening – a total disaster within the last decade alone – housing prices have only further skyrocketed. This has affected everything; from the number of listings on the market to their very stock quota price, and much more.

In fact, the Washington Post has further added that housing prices soared this year by nearly 10 percent in starter homes and nearly 8 percent in trader homes. Last year’s total listings in the U.S. have fallen by another 8.1 percent.

Furthermore, CNBC further notes that this factor alone has indubitably made it far more difficult for one to get a loan. Ellie Mae’s, for instance, has already closed its loan applications for the time being. CEO Jonathan Corr mentioned that, what one can drastically expect to see, with rising fluidity, is an unexpected shift from a seller’s market straight into a buyer’s market. The move is unstoppable. This year’s second quarter alone indicates over 700,000 loan applications closed.
