Why aren’t homebuilders building more homes?

  • Government regulations, land, rising labor and material costs all contribute to the lack of new home completions.

Housing markets all across the U.S. are suffering from serious shortages of homes for sale, and this isn’t expected to change in the foreseeable future. When I think about inventory levels and the fact that demand is clearly outstripping supply, it makes me question why homebuilders aren’t stepping up to the plate to meet all this pent-up demand.
