Housing Scheme: COVID has not bunged the housing market at all, so good luck for your dream home

Did you notice, everything is just stuck up in this epidemic situation but there is just one thing,

which increases the interest that is housing schemes? 

Housing affordability

As loan standards are tightened after the pandemic, new homeowners face barriers to mortgages

without a larger down payment and higher credit score. Lenders want to ensure that after a historic wave of layoffs, borrowers can still repay mortgages during the crisis.


Although mortgage rates are floating at historically low levels, buyers are struggling with insufficient housing inventories and rising prices. This problem has troubled homebuyers in recent years and shows no signs of relaxation. Buyers must act quickly when debating purchases, sometimes asking for excessive prices, or launching bidding wars with other potential buyers.

Insufficient inventory is a problem before the pandemic. Housing builders plagued by the housing crisis have not yet returned to normal production levels and cannot meet current demand. Now, as competition intensifies, supply shortages are further plaguing the real estate market.

statistics: data shows that as of the week of June 20,

housing inventories fell by 29{7d6bb1f761e691f027164c9fe6d1ebbc4659a250013ce39dc45a15ede39dbac5} compared with the same period last year.

According to the latest data from Clever Real Estate, more than 40{7d6bb1f761e691f027164c9fe6d1ebbc4659a250013ce39dc45a15ede39dbac5} of homeowners

who bought a house during the pandemic reported having bid for at least one house. The company bought from May 31 to June 2. A survey of 1,000 homeowners,  bought homes between January and May. 

Javier Vivas,

Javier Vivas, director of economic research at, said: “When housing mortgage rates are low,

the affordability of housing on paper is easier, but the bigger challenge is

to find housing.” Housing demand Growth exceeded expectations. When you combine it with the lowest level of inventory in history, undoubtedly this storm intensifies competition and affordability crises.
