Some on this board were apparently taught that there is only one side to an equation....but there are two sides.
Could housing demand actually be picking up after five years? Yes.
Will this lead to a housing inventory shortage? Not likely.
What about the 20-25% of all homeowners that have wanted to sell but have been sitting on the sidelines either because they were upside down, or wanted to wait until prices recovered somewhat.
Well....they will/can only wait so long. This will provide all the necessary housing inventory.
