Freddie Mac economist: If housing is affordable, why is homeownership out of reach?. Despite housing affordability being near-record highs, homeownership still feels completely out of reach for many people, Sean Becketti, Freddie Mac vice president and chief economist, stated in a blog. Becketti referenced how the National Association of Realtors’ Housing Affordability Index currently sits near-record highs, and yet most news headlines talk about an affordability crisis in the country. According to the latest report from CoreLogic, the property information and analytics provider, home prices increased 6.7% from June 2016 to June 2017 and are forecasted to continuing increasing. Houses are hard to find The limited supply of available homes increases the perception that homes are unaffordable. However, this growth will be limited if homebuilders don’t start to produce homes buyers are calling for. “The market for new homes is facing a growing imbalance between what buyers want and what homebuilders are producing,” said Tian Liu, Genworth Mortgage Insurance chief economist. Borrowers are uncertain if they can qualify for a mortgage The HAI tells only part of the story—it measures whether the median-income family has sufficient income to comfortably cover the monthly mortgage payment on the median-price house. But there are other qualifications as well. Borrowers should talk to a lender in order to see what they qualify for.
