’ Happy New Year! I hope the holiday season finds everyone happy, healthy, and even allowed for a little extra relaxation. I think we all deserve it. For those of you whom I have not had the chance to meet or speak with, I am Jamie Schmidt with Investcore, Inc., and I will be the BMHBA President for 2022. First, I want to thank Greg Meidinger for his service as BMHBA President this past year. With many challenges in our industry, he did a great job leading our association. Thank you, Greg! Also, thank you to Jeff Sattler who will not be on our board for the first time in centuries. Thank you for your leadership and dedication to our association.

JAMIE SCHMIDT 2022 BMHBA PRESIDENT

I want to thank everyone who attended our Fall Mixer & Board Elections. It was a great turnout and our association elected two new Builder Directors to the board. Andrew Meldahl, Pinnacle Homes & Design, and Joshua Jacobchick, JSJ Construction, were elected to serve. Congratulations Andrew and Joshua. Our board looks forward to sharing the meeting table with you.

Home Show booth sales continue to grow. As of mid-December, 84 companies have signed up. If your company has not signed up for the Home Show, I would encourage you to consider participating. It is a great event where our members can gather in one place to showcase products, services, and get our faces in front of the public eye. Furthermore, the Home Show is a great way to support our association and our mission to continue being an advocate for our industry. Be on the lookout for upcoming events and member networking opportunities that are being planned. Your involvement and ideas are what help make our association successful. Please take this opportunity to get involved, join a committee, share your ideas, recruit new members, and help retain our current members. Together we can help make this a successful 2022!!

Looking back on 2021 is also a look into the Bismarck area’s future. One of the major initiatives undertaken this year was the update to our comprehensive plan titled Together 2045. As the name implies, the plan looks out to the year 2045 and projects that the Bismarck area will be adding another 25,000 residents by that time. The plan will shape the future land use and policy framework, supporting Bismarck area growth and development over the next 25 years. The plan is anticipated for completion by December 2022. To learn more about the plan or to find ways to be involved please visit the project webpage: https://www.bismarcknd.gov/together2045. Permit activity continued to be a positive trend over the past year. Year to date through November 2021, singlefamily residential new construction permits saw a roughly 19% increase over the past five-year average. Year to date through November, saw total building permits remain inline with the past five-year average.

The past year has also seen a variety of staffing changes within the Community Development Department. The Building Inspections Division has added Kraig Lowen and Brad Haider as building inspectors, as well as, Tracy Walters who will be joining our front office team. Former building inspector, Mark Kern, will be taking on a new role as a Plans Examiner. The Planning Division has added Maureen Mungai, our new Housing and Urban Development Administrator. The BismarckMandan Metropolitan Planning Organization has a new executive director in Rachel Drewlow. Additionally, Kim Riepl has taken on a new role as a transportation planner, and we have added Stephen Larson as a transportation specialist. We are excited for our new and existing team members to help serve you in 2022.

A few years ago, during a Legislative Session, I had to take time off from the Capitol to visit the dentist. Because it was an especially trying week of lobbying, I welcome the reprieve that only a dentist’s chair could give me that day. I quickly found out that I wasn’t going to simply hear the drilling of the dentist’s equipment. My dentist had a lot to say that day. That was the year that the dental industry had a major issue come up with the Legislature. And suffice it to say, he was not very happy about it. After much complaining about the current state of affairs, I only had one question for him: “Are you a member of your trade association?” This is where I finally found my silence.

KAYLA PULVERMACHER NDAB CEO

MIKE JANGULA 2022 NDAB PRESIDENT

He finally went on to tell me that didn’t feel like it was a good use of his money, and that the association wouldn’t listen to him anyways. As you can imagine, as an individual who has made a career representing North Dakota citizens as a lobbyist, this didn’t sit well with me. But because he currently had his tools in my mouth, I was very careful with my words. I replied with something like, “you can’t really complain, if you’re not willing to be active,” but in a much nice way. But of course, this isn’t a new story for any of you—you get it! You understand the important of being a member of your local home builders association, and you put in the time and effort to get the most you can out of your membership. But I’m going to challenge you to go a step further. I challenge you to give to NDAB-PAC and to BUILD-PAC.

NDAB-PAC AND BUILD PAC are the political action committees that help both North Dakota candidates and congressional candidates that support the building industry get elected. These important committees, who both have North Dakota members represented, ensure that when we have issues in Bismarck or in Washington, D.C., that we have representatives there that understand our industry. Running for elected office is no joke—it has only become more arduous and more costly. We must be willing to take a seat at the table or we will be on the menu. I hope that you’ll join myself and other members around the state by donating to our PACs and taking our organization to the next level. And then maybe during the 2023 Legislative Session, the dentist’s chair won’t feel like a vacation. Take Care, Kayla Pulvermacher, NDAB CEO Mike Jangula, 2022 NDAB President

Single-family housing showed strength in November despite supply-chain limitations for materials and ongoing access issues for labor and lots. Overall housing starts increased 11.8% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.68 million units, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Census Bureau. The November reading of 1.68 million starts is the number of housing units builders would begin if development kept this pace for the next 12 months. Within this overall number, single-family starts increased 11.3% to a 1.17 million seasonally adjusted annual rate, and are up 15.2% year-to-date. The multifamily sector, which includes apartment buildings and condos, increased 12.9% to an annualized 506,000 pace.

stabilization. The November read of housing starts is consistent with this analysis. In fact, single-family permits showed strength in November, rising 2.7% and up 15.7% year-to-date. Multifamily construction continues to expand strongly on declining vacancies and rising rents. After posting a slight decline in 2020, 5+ unit production is up 27.7% on a year-todate basis. Even the “missing middle,” 2 to 4 unit production is showing gains, albeit up a smaller 10.1% year-to-date. On a regional and year-to-date basis (January through November of 2021 compared to that same time frame a year ago), combined single-family and multifamily starts are 24.4% higher in the Northeast, 9.6% higher in the Midwest, 15.4% higher in the South and 19.4% higher in the West.

Due to supply-chain effects, there are 152,000 singlefamily units authorized but not started construction—up 40.7% from a year ago. In December, single-family builder confidence increased one point to a level 84 (after a three point gain in November) on strong buyer demand, according to the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI). After peaking at a level of 90 in November 2021, builders have reported ongoing concerns over elevated lumber and other construction costs, as well as delays in obtaining building materials. The NAHB forecast projects growing labor shortages as the overall unemployment rate trends lower in the quarters ahead. While the single-family sector cooled at the start of 2021, off the unsustainable seasonally adjusted pace of last Winter, recent readings, including the HMI, suggest ongoing

As an indicator of the economic impact of housing, there are now 752,000 single-family homes under construction. This is 28% higher than a year ago. There are currently 734,000 apartments under construction, up 11% from a year ago. Total housing units now under construction (singlefamily and multifamily combined) is 19% higher than a year ago. Overall permits increased 3.6% to a 1.71 million unit annualized rate in November. Single-family permits increased 2.7% to a 1.03 million unit rate. Multifamily permits increased 5.2% to an annualized 609,000 pace. Looking at regional permit data on a year-to-date basis, permits are 13.6% higher in the Northeast, 16.3% higher in the Midwest, 19.3% higher in the South and 22.4% higher in the West.


Single-family and multifamily housing production accelerated in November, due to strong demand for new construction. Overall housing starts increased 11.8% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.68 million units, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Census Bureau. The November reading of 1.68 million starts is the number of housing units builders would begin if development kept this pace for the next 12 months. Within this overall number, single-family starts increased 11.3% to a 1.17 million seasonally adjusted annual rate. The multifamily sector, which includes apartment buildings and condos, increased 12.9% to an annualized 506,000 pace. “Mirroring gains in the HMI reading of builder sentiment, single-family housing starts accelerated near the end of 2021 and are up 15.2% year-to-date as demand for new construction remains strong due to a lean inventory of resale housing,” said NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke. “Policymakers need to help alleviate ongoing building material supply chain bottlenecks that are preventing builders from keeping up with buyer demand.” “Breaking an eight-year trend, in recent months there

At the conclusion of its December policy meeting, the Federal Reserve announced changes to its outlook and projections that move monetary policy further away from the accommodative stance that has supported the economic rebound from the 2020 recession. This pivot toward tighter policy is a direct result of ongoing, elevated inflation data. This announcement makes several changes to both the Fed’s economic outlook and its implied monetary policy path: •

Acceleration of tapering of purchases of mortgage-backed securities and Treasuries • The central bank will double the pace of tapering with an anticipated conclusion of bond purchases in March 2022 Retirement of “transitory” inflation expectations • The Fed’s outlook notes that supply-demand imbalances are contributing to “elevated levels of inflation” • The Fed’s economic projections increased its estimate for 2021 inflation (under the core PCE measure) from 3.7% to 4.4% • As an indication that inflation will persist well into 2022, the projection for inflation next year increased from 2.3% to 2.7% Higher interest rates sooner • The Fed did not announce a change in the federal funds target rate today

have been more single-family homes under construction than multifamily units,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “Moreover, despite some cooling earlier this year, the continued strength of single-family construction in 2021 means there are now 28% more single-family homes under construction than a year ago. These gains mean singlefamily completions will increase in 2022, bringing more inventory to market despite a 19% year-over-year rise in construction material costs and longer construction times.” On a regional and year-to-date basis (January through November of 2021 compared to that same time frame a year ago), combined single-family and multifamily starts are 24.4% higher in the Northeast, 9.6% higher in the Midwest, 15.4% higher in the South and 19.4% higher in the West. Overall permits increased 3.6% to a 1.71 million unit annualized rate in November. Single-family permits increased 2.7% to a 1.10 million unit rate. Multifamily permits increased 5.2% to an annualized 609,000 pace. Looking at regional permit data on a year-to-date basis, permits are 13.6% higher in the Northeast, 16.3% higher in the Midwest, 19.3% higher in the South and 22.4% higher in the West.

However, today’s announcement/outlook suggests three 25 basis point rate hikes in 2022 and three more in 2023

This implied tightening is consistent with our existing forecast of a 2% 10-year Treasury rate near the end of 2022. This higher rate also implies the 30-year mortgage rate rising to somewhat higher than 3.6% by the end of next year. It is important to note that there is not a direct connection between federal fund rate hikes and changes in long-term interest rates. Indeed, during the last tightening cycle, the federal funds target rate increased from November 2015 (with a top rate of just 0.25%) to November 2018 (2.5%), a 225 basis point expansion. However, during this time mortgage interest rates increased by a proportionately smaller amount, rising from approximately 3.9% to just under 4.9%. Nonetheless, today’s policy pivot, in response to increased inflation data and inflation expectations, will yield higher interest rates in 2022 due to tighter monetary policy. This change will reduce housing affordability and again emphasizes the need for policymakers to enact solutions to fix the nation’s supply-chains.


The latest results from the Federal Reserve’s Z.1 Financial Accounts of the United States, i.e., the “Flow of Funds”, show that the aggregate value of all home mortgages of households and nonprofit organizations in the United States in the third quarter of 2021 registered the largest post-Great Recession numerical quarterly increase. From $11.3 trillion in the second quarter of 2021, household liabilities rose by $230 billion to $11.5 trillion. Both the current quarter and the previous quarter’s numerical increases in the aggregate value of home mortgages were outsized compared to all previous quarters since June 2009.

It is worth noting that the Flow of Funds data are not seasonally adjusted. Also, as in prior releases, the current Z.1 report included revisions to earlier quarters’ estimates. In the Despite the gain for mortgages, equity is rising faster.
