Nearly One-Third of Investors View Housing Market as Too Expensive


This week’s Sentiment Survey special question asked AAII members for their perception of the current state of the housing market. Nearly one out of three respondents (32%) describe housing as lacking enough inventory (especially for entry-level homes) or otherwise being too expensive. An additional 18% say prices are at risk of declining, with rising interest rates cited as a primary catalyst. Approximately 11% described the current environment as a seller’s market, while nearly 19% think the housing market will remain strong.

Here is a sampling of the responses:

  • “Tight with low availability, especially for first-time buyers.”
  • “Bubble developing. Too little inventory and rising interest rates spell trouble.”
  • “It appears to be a seller’s market with prices increasing.”
  • “A bit overpriced, but likely to stay that way.”
  • “As long as interest rates don’t spike, housing will remain strong.”
