What is causing more buyers in the current housing market?

The competition between buyers is slowing causing an increase in buyer activity.This custom built home is close to New Orleans in Covington.

In the second quarter of 2022 there was a increase to 49% in the share of prospective home buyers who are actively seeking a home to purchase. This comes after a decline for three straight quarters in a row. Rising interest rates have pushed many prospective home buyers righ tout of the market.

According to the NAHB’s Housing Trends Report each region saw a different share of prospective home buyers who are actively searching for a home to purchase. The South was the only region that did not see a rise. As for the remaining three, the Northeast went from 50% in the first quarter to 54% in the second quarter, the Midwest went from 40% in the first quarter to 51% in the second quarter and the West saw an increase of 57% in the second quarter from the 46% that was reported in Quarter one.

The housing market has also seen a rise in availability expextations. We have seen a fall for the last five consecutive quarters so this is good news as it grew from 17% to 22% between the first and second quarter of this year. Along with availability expectations affordability expectations also increased. This has been the first increase since 2020 going from 19% to 23% from the first quarter to the second quarter.
