Metro Atlanta Has a Housing Problem
Mortgage interest rates are up. Home prices are up. Inflation is up.
Although the current economic outlook isn’t the best, the demand for housing remains strong. While more houses are available in the post-coronavirus economy compared one and two years ago, the inventory of available homes remains historically low here in the Atlanta region.
Now new home builders are cutting back on their new home construction efforts. The cost of material and labor has caused new home housing prices to skyrocket. Higher mortgage interest rates have priced out many home buyers from new homes.
I recently commented on a post from the National Association of Home Builders on LinkedIn about the reduction of new home construction.
It is still a seller’s market. There are more buyers than sellers. There simply is not enough inventory of homes to meet the demand.
The reduction of new home construction is fueling demand for fully renovated homes. This is especially true for homes at or below the median price point. These are homes that are more affordable and in the most demand. First time home buyers typically look for houses to purchase that are priced below the median price.
Fixing and flipping single family houses is part of the solution to the lack home available for sale. While housing inventory is historically low, the demand for fully renovated homes in like-new condition remains high.
The cost of renovating a house with deferred maintenance and outdated features is less than the cost of building a new home. A fully renovated house will always have a lower sale price than a newly constructed home.
This is why fixing and flipping single family house is profitable.
The Opportunity: High Demand and Less Competition
As the housing market cools down from an overheated market to a stabilized, seller’s market, The opportunity to re-sell fully renovated, like-new homes is likely to remain strong while inventory stays low and home builders reduce the rate new home construction.
Additionally, there is less competition from other fix and flip investors because of the higher cost of financing. Investment rehabilitation loans have higher costs and interest rates. These higher costs, knock some investors out of the business of fixing and flipping homes. This has created a better environment for true cash buyers.
