While undersupply may not be the only factor impacting home prices, after reading this article by NAHB Chief Economist, Robert Deitz, we think the extent of this impact cannot be overstated.

This article provides an outstanding overview of home building over the past decade, highlighting the incredible deficit of new homes built compared to previous decades, despite continued population growth and new household formation.
