If you have been tracking the prices of houses, you might wonder why houses are so expensive. This article will explore a guide to why house prices are very expensive.

  1. Lower Interest Rates

Do low-interest rates affect the prices of housing, and how? When there is a decrease in the interest rates, the cost of financing the houses also decreases. Most people tend to buy more houses at reduced prices, increasing the demand for houses. As the demand for houses increases, the overall house prices increase.

Additionally, political changes and trade agreements have led to an increase in import prices. When construction materials are expensive, the overall prices of houses rise.

The federal government increases the interest rate the lenders respond by increasing their own interest rates, which affects the housing industry and market. Even though the interest rate increases might slow over months, inflation has always greatly impacted the housing market.

  1. Increase In Local Zoning Regulation

With the increased technology and growth in the construction industry, the regulations for building keep changing. Some common zoning regulations include neighbourhood restrictions, permit requirements and population density laws. As these zoning regulation change, they directly affect house prices which shoots up. The increase is due to the reduction in the supply of housing.

  1. Lower Supply

It's important to note that even though the political and economic variables contribute to the rise of prices, the major reason for the increase is that the den is higher than the supply. There are so many potential purchasers and few available houses to sell. This makes the sellers rise their prices to reduce the n competition and to get the best prices. Additionally, the shortage can be attributed to the fact that banks are now giving out loans to people with bad credit scores.
