Paradox In The US Real Estate Market

American real estate market members are having a headache because of the situation left behind, when everything should have gone in the right direction, but in fact is not.


The US economy is proving its strength is improving, with “dream” data. The number of jobs increased for 91 consecutive months, pushing the unemployment rate to the lowest level since 2000. Latest unemployment data show that only 3.8% of Americans are unemployed in May. A rare development in the economy also occurs, when the total number of new jobs created is higher than the number of unemployed people.

Besides, the average hourly wage has also reached US $22.59/hour, up 2.8% in May – the strongest increase in nearly a decade. In particular, retail trade is one of the industries witnessing the fastest increase in wages, with an increase of 4.4%. Notably, in the construction sector, which is famous for its low wages, workers also have an average wage increase of 3.6%, reaching $27.50/hour.

Along with rising wages, the total asset value of households in the US also climbed in the last quarter. If before the crisis period, the total assets of all US households were about 66,000 billion USD, then fell to 55,000 billion USD when house prices and real estate market plunged. Currently, this figure has surpassed $ 100,000 billion (at the end of 2017, it is $98,700 billion), when both house prices and stock markets are setting peaks.

Yet, despite the positive economic background, home sales are not growing at all. Even the number of existing houses sold has decreased by 1% since the beginning of the year. The number of newly built houses awaits their owners at a higher level than last year, though still under construction capacity.

Currently, the total sales of new and existing houses are at the same level as in 2000. Specifically, the number of existing houses sold reached 5.2 million units, the number of new houses reached 900,000 units. This number is now 5.5 million units and 650,000 units respectively. Meanwhile, the number of people in the United States has increased by 40 million, with an additional 17 million new jobs compared to 2000. Not to mention, the home loan interest rate in 2000 was about 8% per year, while Currently only about 4.6%/year. So what’s going on?

According to economic experts, the United States is in an abnormal situation, when the real estate market is hot, but home sales do not increase. One of the main reasons is the lack of supply. Accordingly, the US real estate market is flooded with existing houses for sale, but few buyers, because these are large-sized, or high-value apartments, where owners or environmentalists want to trade through their hands to make a big profit.

In addition, the lack of new housing supply also makes current apartment owners worried that once sold, they will not find a suitable new home. This is the reason, in recent years, the average owner time of a house attached to the house is up to 8-10 years.

The real estate market is hot when house prices are constantly increasing, while people still lack the choice to suit their desires and affordability. This is why despite the stable economic development, home sales are not as positive as expected.

Building new homes will create more jobs, boost the local economy, increase tax revenue, make home prices more suitable and increase home ownership rates. This is what the United States needs to do to solve the current situation.

Why are so many millennial’s living at home?

Nearly 23% of millennials aged from 24-36 years old are commonly being see living at home with their parents. While older generations might equate this behaviour to laziness or lack of motivation – there are some reasons why this phenomenon is happening at the rate it is. Though, it wasn’t always like this. Just back in 2005, that number was only 14 percent.

Unlike historical normalises, more and more younger people are living at home after they either finish school or are having a hard time starting a life of their own. This is mainly due to the current housing market constantly outpacing the wages that these millennials are earning. No matter if the millennial in question has a college degree or not – many jobs are only paying minimum wage, and the costs to either buy a home or rent a home are increasing double what millennials are even making a month.

Proof in the Census

Census has shown that this year – homeownership numbers for people aged under 35 has hit the lowest its been in twenty years. Even if millennials decide that they would want to rent a home or an apartment, the costs for rent have been increasing by hundred almost every month. However, this factor does depend on the living area of the millennial. In urbaner metropolitan areas – the rent does tend to be higher than in suburban area. Though with the rising costs of the housing market, many jobs and governments are refusing to raise the minimum wage limit to something that will be livable for a millennial with or without a college education.

However, despite the increase of millennials at home, people in this age group do hold the power of shaking up the housing market in their favour. While they can save money living at their parents’ home and actively avoid buying or renting a home, companies are eventually going to be forced to lower the rent prices of and even possibly their homes. This is imperative if millennials are to be inclined and comfortable to take the plunge of moving out from their parents’ home into one of their own. Another solution to this problem is having governments raise the current minimum wage to something that is livable. Seeing how prices are always going to rise and falter in todays economy.

Millennials Struggling with Home Ownership

Moreover, many of the millennials who are current homeowners or renters – live in the suburbs where they were able to find a home without paying a lump sum of money. This is due to the fact that many homes in the suburbs lack what homes in metropolitan areas do: community gym and swimming pools, restaurants within a few minute walk, and a area with events that are always going on. If more millennials are looking for a way to move out of home and become truly independent, then they should consider looking at homes in more suburban areas. Usually, they will be able to find a good starter home that doesn’t require any renovations – though millennials are going to have to give up being close to the city if they want to make this change.
