New home sales fall in August, year-to-date sales up

S

ales of newly built, single-family homes in August fell 3.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 560,000 units from an upwardly revised July reading, according to newly released data by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Census Bureau. This was the lowest sales reading since December 2016. However, yearto-date, new home sales are 7.5 percent above their level over the same period last year. “This month’s report is another reminder that builders need to manage rising supply-side

costs to meet consumer demand for affordably priced homes,” said Granger MacDonald, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder and developer from Kerrville, Texas. “The year-to-date growth shows that new home sales are continuing to make consistent, long-term gains,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “However, we may see more volatility in the next few months as communities affected by the recent hurricanes experience construction delays and other economic disruptions.” The inventory of new homes for sale was 284,000 in August, which is a 6.1-month supply at the current sales pace. Regionally, new home sales remained unchanged in the Midwest. Sales fell 2.6 percent in the Northeast, 2.7 percent in the West and 4.7 percent in the South. n


Sources of new home buyers and new renters

A

ccording to NAHB’s latest special study, households who recently changed addresses fall into a natural order: 1) Buyers of Newer Homes, 2) Buyers of Older Homes, 3) Renters of Newer Homes, and 4) Renters of Older Homes. As you move up the scale from 4 to 1, the following interrelated tendencies become evident: The movers have, on average, higher incomes. More of the movers are previous home owners. Fewer are newly formed households (moving out of homes owned or rented by someone else). More are moving up in terms of subjectively measured housing quality. More are also moving up in terms of housing costs. Although the labor market

has strengthened and house price appreciation has improved home equity, the inventory of new homes also remains low. Builders remain optimistic, but the challenges faced by the industry are raising production costs and inhibiting housing production growth which is limiting inventory expansion and pushing up new home prices. Labor shortages represent one of the biggest problems that builders have been facing. In addition, the cost/availability of developed lots, regulations, and building materials shortages are other top problems faced by builders. Home buyers and new tenants in rental housing can come from households that were previously owners, households that were

ationwide housing starts fell 0.8 percent in August to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.18 million units, according to newly released data from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Commerce Department. Single-family production rose 1.6 percent in August to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 851,000 after a downwardly revised July reading. Year-to-date, single-family starts are 8.9 percent above their level over the same period last year. Multifamily starts dropped 6.5 percent to 329,000 units after an upward July revision. “This month’s report shows that single-family starts continue to move forward at a gradual, consistent pace,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “The threemonth average for single-family production has reached a post-recession high, but the months ahead may show volatility given that the building markets affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma represent about 14 percent of national production.” “We are paying close attention to the communities affected by these hurricanes, and are helping them start on the rebuilding and restoration process,” said Granger MacDonald, NAHB chairman. Regionally in August, combined singleand multifamily housing production rose 22.0

percent in the Midwest and 4.0 percent in the West. Starts fell 7.9 percent in the South and 8.7 percent in the Northeast. Overall permit issuance in August was up 5.7 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.30 million units. Single-family permits edged down 1.5 percent to 800,000 units while multifamily permits rose 19.6 percent to 500,000. Regionally, overall permits rose 15.3 percent in the West, 8.8 percent in the Midwest and 3.7 percent in the South. Permits fell 13.0 percent in the Northeast. Hurricane activity affects confidence Builder confidence in the market for newly-built single-family homes fell three points to a level of 64 in September from a downwardly revised August reading of 67 on the NAHB/ Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI). “The recent hurricanes have intensified our members’ concerns about the availability of labor and the cost of building materials,” said MacDonald. “Once the rebuilding process is underway, I expect builder confidence will return to the high levels we saw this spring.” “Despite this month’s drop, builder confidence is still on very firm ground,” said Dietz. “With ongoing job creation, economic growth and rising consumer confidence, we should see the housing market continue to recover at a grad-

previously renters, and newly formed households. Former home owners account for a significantly larger share of home buyers than of new tenants in rental housing. In other words, a large share of home buyers consists of repeat buyers. Former renters and new households account for larger shares of the home buying market for older homes, still larger shares of the market for newer rental housing, and shares even larger than that of the market for older rental housing. Despite these differences, the four categories of recent movers are similar in some respects. All are either acquiring better housing without always paying more for it, or (for renters of older homes) achieving lower housing costs without always sacrificing quality. In addition, all four types of movers most often move relatively short distances (from less than 50 miles away) but without staying in the same neighborhood. n

ual, steady pace throughout the rest of the year.” Derived from a monthly survey that NAHB has been conducting for 30 years, the NAHB/ Wells Fargo Housing Market Index gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months as “good,” “fair” or “poor.” The survey also asks builders to rate traffic of prospective buyers as “high to very high,” “average” or “low to very low.” Scores for each component are then used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index where any number over 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as good than poor. All three HMI components posted losses in September but remain at healthy levels. The component gauging current sales conditions fell four points to 70 and the index charting sales expectations in the next six months dropped four points to 74. Meanwhile, the component measuring buyer traffic slipped a single point to 47. Looking at the three-month moving averages for regional HMI scores, the West increased three points to 77 and the Northeast rose one point to 49. The South dropped a single point to 66 and the Midwest fell three points to 63.

Green home building on the rise according to study

G

reen construction is rapidly gaining traction among both single-family and multifamily home builders, according to new research published in the Green Multifamily and Single Family Homes 2017 SmartMarket Brief. The latest in a series of studies conducted by Dodge Data & Analytics in partnership with NAHB, the study shows that green homes are continuing to gain market share. At least one-third of single-family and multifamily surveyed builders said that green building is a significant portion of their overall activity (more than 60 percent of their portfolio). By 2022, this number should increase to nearly one-half in both sectors. Within this group, nearly 30 percent of multifamily builders fall into the category of “ded-

icated” green builders (more than 90 percent of their portfolio). On the single-family side, the percentage of “dedicated” green builders is nearly 20 percent, but that share is expected to grow sizably by 2022. Increasing energy efficiency continues to be the most common method of improving the performance of a green home, followed by creating a healthy indoor living environment. The report also found that a considerable number of builders are developing net zero homes or plan to build net zero homes in the near future. Among those surveyed, 29 percent of single-family home builders have built a net zero, near-net zero, or net zero-ready home in the past two years, and 44 percent expect to do so in the next two years. Builders see increased

Home price appreciation continues in July

S

&P Dow Jones Indices released the Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index for July. The report indicates that house price appreciation continues. The U.S. National Home Price Index rose at a seasonally adjusted annual growth rate of 5.7% in July, following the 4.4% rate of growth in June. The Home Price Index released by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) confirmed both the increase and acceleration in house prices. According to the FHFA Home Price Index, house prices rose at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 2.0% in July, faster than the 1.7% increase in June.

Increases in the market value of households’ real estate are contributing to an expansion in owners’ equity in real estate. Since buyers of new home are typically “trade-up buyers”, the equity in their current home can be used to finance the purchase of a new home. However, the shift in the composition of housing equity by age groups suggests that the expansion in housing equity may have a larger impact on home improvements. In general, homeowners can be separated into two groups by the presence of a mortgage. The first group includes homeowners without mortgages, they own their home free and clear. Analysis by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York found that, “44% of total net housing wealth is held free and clear” and “properties owned free and clear tend to be held by older people — 64% of this wealth is held by people over 60 years of age, a figure which has held basically constant since 2005.”

customer demand and a competitive advantage as the top two drivers to develop net zero homes. Other findings suggest the single-family green home market is maturing. For one, the report found that home builders are less concerned about higher start-up costs than in previous studies. There was also a decline among people who think consumers will not pay additional costs for green building. Multifamily builders see government or utility incentives; customer demand; and changes in codes, ordinances, and regulations as the top drivers for future green building activity. As for obstacles, multifamily builders are most concerned about the costs associated with green, higher start-up costs and the unwillingness of consumers to pay more for green construction. Single-family builders said the challenge of consumers not being willing to pay more for green is the top obstacle for them. For more information about NAHB’s sustainable building activities, visit nahb.org/green. n

The second group is comprised of homeowners with mortgages. The analysis by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York pointed out that the majority of equity held in mortgaged homes resides in the hands of homeowners 60 and below. However, the figure below, adapted from the table produced by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York researchers, shows the change in the distribution of home equity in mortgaged homes over the last decade. Between 2006 and 2016, even though mortgaged homeowners 60 and below still hold the majority of home equity, the share of equity in mortgaged homes owned by those 60 and below has declined. In contrast, the equity in mortgaged homes held by owners above 60 has risen by 15 percentage points to 36% in 2016. A back of the envelope calculation taking into account the share of owners’ equity held by those above 60 both in properties with no mortgage and mortgaged properties suggests that owners above 60 years of age hold 48% of housing equity. These owners may have a growing preference for agingin-place as opposed to selling their current home and buying a new home. On the one hand, a greater preference for aging-in-place would lessen the likelihood that an owner 60 or above would use their home equity to purchase a new home, lowering both the existing home inventory levels and sales of new homes, and instead increase the possibility that the home equity would finance spending on home improvements. n

How buyers financed their homes in 2016

N

AHB analysis of the 2016 Census Bureau Survey of Construction (SOC) data shows that reliance on non-conventional forms of financing varied across the United States, with its share exceeding 37% in the South Atlantic division but accounting for less than 20% of new single-family home starts in the East South Central and East North Central divisions. Nationwide, the share of non-conventional financing declined in 2016 and, for the first time since 2008, it accounted for less than a third of the market, 31.5%. Non-conventional forms of financing, as opposed to conventional mortgage loans, include loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), VA-backed loans, cash purchases and other types of financing such as the Rural Housing Service, Habitat for Humanity, loans from individuals, state or local government mortgage-backed bonds. Looking at new single-family homes started in 2016, the South Atlantic division was most dependent on non-conventional financing, with its share exceeding 37% of the market. FHA-backed loans accounted for more than half of all non-conventional financing in the division, 19% of the market – the highest FHA-loans share in the country. The West South Central (35%), Mountain (33%) and Pacific (33%) divisions also registered elevated shares of non-conventional forms of financing, exceeding the national average. While homebuyers in the South Atlantic and West South Central division relied more heavily on FHA-insured loans, VA-backed loans dominated non-conventional financing in the Mountain division. Here, the share of VA-backed loans was close to 14%, twice as high as the national average, making the Mountain division the only region in the nation where the share of VA-backed loans exceeded that of cash purchases and other types of financing combined. In contrast to single-family patterns, new multifamily apartment size is down compared to the pre-recession period. This is due to the weak for-sale market and strength for rental demand. Next on the list are the New England and Middle Atlantic divisions where 30% and 26% of new home buyers, respectively, did not make use of conventional loans. FHA and VA-backed loans played a minimal role in these markets, with their shares varying from under 1% to 2%. Both divisions, however, stand out for registering the two highest shares of cash purchases in the nation. In New England, more than a quarter of all homes started in 2016 were purchased with cash.

October, 2017

The Middle Atlantic registered the second highest share – 21%. In comparison, the US share of cash purchases was 9%. At the opposite end of the spectrum is the East South Central division where only 16% of new single-family homes were financed using non-conventional methods. This share is roughly half of the US average, making it the lowest share of non-conventional financing in the nation. In the East North Central division, one out of five new single-family homes was purchased without conventional loans. Nationwide, FHA-backed loans remained the most prevalent form of non-conventional financing of new home purchases – the status they temporarily lost to cash purchases in 2014 following the implemented decline in the 2014 FHA loan limits. For homes started in 2016, the national share of mortgages insured by the FHA was 13%. The share of VA-backed loans remained relatively stable in 2016, accounting for close to 7% of the market. The share of cash purchases, the second most prevalent form of non-conventional financing, declined slightly from 10% to 9% in 2016. The market share loss was more pronounced in New England, where cash purchases lost 8% of the market and conventional loans picked up the slack with their share expanding by 10%. Nevertheless, as discussed above, New England continues to register the nation’s highest share, with one in three new homes started in 2016 purchased with cash. At the other end of the spectrum is the East South Central division where less than 5% of single-family starts were financed with cash. The high prevalence of cash financing in the New England, East North Central and Middle Atlantic divisions can be partially explained by the popularity of custom homebuilding in these divisions, with all three claiming the top three custom home market shares in 2016. Custom homes are more likely to be financed with cash, especially if built by the owner acting as the general contractor. In 2016, a third of custom homes built by the owner were financed with cash, while only 5 percent of spec homes were purchased with cash. Other types of non-conventional financing methods – such as the Rural Housing Service, Habitat for Humanity, loans from individuals, state or local government mortgage-backed bonds and other – are more common in the West South Central division (6%), exceeding the national average of 3%. n
