BlueBid Buzz: June 6

The Buzz is a regular summary of housing market news and data driving our decision-making at BlueBid.


Here's the Buzz for the week of June 6, 2024…


  • The New York Post says the number of homes for sale in the United States is slowly returning to normal.

  • Even with inventory on the rise, Newsweek reports rising prices and elevated borrowing costs mean the housing market just keeps getting worse for buyers.

  • Mortgage demand fell for the second straight week and 30-year rates rose slightly, according to CNBC.

  • A recent survey by Redfin finds that housing affordability is Gen Z's top voting issue, outweighing the overall economy and other hot button issues.

  • Zillow digs into data from the U.S. Census Bureau and finds cities with the largest recent population growth have two factors in common: affordability and relatively high inventory.

  • The National Association of Realtors observes built-for-rent housing starts on the rise.


Have a great week.
