True State of Housing Market (by NYUGrad)

By -

From our friend NYUGrad………..Must watch………..

Pay close attention to the ‘Cost Model’ conversation and Certificate of occupancy. I myself was about to buy a semi custom home in 2020 before the Covid lockdown. Then Covid hit and everyone left the cities. Homes I was originally looking to buy went from 1.3m all in to 2.5m all in over the course of 8 months!

New Builders are able to legally hide inventory and not list almost ready homes from MLS. So if you go visit track home sites across America like Melody has, like I have as a buyer, you will then see for yourself how much inventory is almost built but nowhere to be found on MLS or Zillow or or Redfin etc.
