More than a decade of underbuilding has resulted in a shortage of 6.5 million single-family homes, as new-home construction continues to lag population growth. According to a new report from Realtor.com, 15.6 million new households were formed between 2012 and 2022, while only 9.03 million new single-family homes were completed. However, the report acknowledges that if multi-family starts are included, which represented 35% of all housing starts in 2022, the current supply deficit falls to 2.3 million homes.
