Mortgage rates are dropping — so why aren’t more people buying homes?

It’s actually really simple. The home ownership rate is back to its historic norm. That’s going to lead to slower appreciation unless:

  1. We see a lot more households created
  2. We go back to lots of subprime financing to increase the home ownership rate

Millennials should be in prime household formation time of their lives.
