HOMEOWNER’S MOBILITY IS STUCK AT A 30 YEAR LOW. Despite rising home prices and a growing U.S. economy, many homeowners elect to stay where they are rather than move.

  • Inventory of homes for sale has fallen to multidecade lows.
  • New home prices are at record highs in majority of markets.
  • New housing starts remain 40% below their 50-year average.
  • Mobility rates which were stable from the 1950s through the late 1970s have been in a slow decline for decades.
