Today, in the Calculated Risk Real Estate Newsletter: Total Housing Completions Will Likely Increase Slightly in 2023; The Mix will Change
Brief excerpt: Although housing starts have slowed, completions will likely increase slightly in 2023.
This graph shows total housing completions and placements since 1968 with an estimate for 2023 based on completions through September. Note that the net additional to the housing stock is less because of demolitions and destruction of older housing units.
My current estimate is total completions (single family, multi-family, manufactured homes) will increase in 2023 to around 1.535 million, up from 1.503 million in 2022. However, the mix will change significantly from 2022 with fewer single-family completions and fewer manufactured homes, and more multi-family completions.You can subscribe at https://calculatedrisk.substack.com/.
