Real Estate 2022 “The U.S. Census Bureau’s recent release on housing starts indicated a surge in new construction and permitting activity in November, which will hopefully start to help ease the housing supply shortages the market is facing,” he said.
Homebuilder sentiment held steady in December, according to The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index, which rose one point to 84 last month. The number ties the highest reading of the year that was posted in February.
The index can range between 0 and 100 with any print over 50 indicating positive sentiment. Any reading above 80 signals strong demand.
The National Association of Home Builders noted in a news release that despite concerns over inflation and ongoing production bottlenecks, home builder confidence edged higher for the fourth straight month due to strong consumer demand and limited existing inventory.
Aubrey noted on Wednesday that supply chain issues and worker shortages are causing challenges for the industry as it pertains to new homes.
“Consumers are catching the brunt of this in that it costs more to build a house now than it did two years ago because of those supply chain issues,” he noted, stressing that the situation is not “dampening the industry” and “people still want to buy.”
Aubrey also pointed out that the “suburbs are still doing great,” adding that “any perceived exodus from cities has completely changed.”
“I think the reality is we still remain in a low inventory condition both in the burbs and in our urban centers and I think that there is just more demand than there is supply out there right now,” he continued.
“I think one of the reasons that we’ve seen the rental market come back as strong as it has, specifically in New York City, is because there just isn’t enough to buy.”
“Any perception that the American city is gone because of COVID is just plain silly,” he added.
Aubrey acknowledged that the threat of higher interest rates could potentially cool the hot housing market.

Every marketing course I’ve taken, all the case studies – global or Indian, were primarily around FMCG brands – from Coca Cola (or Heineken) to cookies and cereals. As far as I can recollect, not a single professor used examples of real estate brands. And thus, it never occurred to […]Read More
