“Severe inventory shortfalls are limiting home sales,” Redfin chief economist Daryl Fairweather said in a statement. “Even though many people bought homes last year, many homebuyers waited while the pandemic went from bad to worse and remote-working policies were finalised.”

Fairweather continued, “Home buyers who are just beginning their search are finding that the well has run dry.” “But I expect that as building materials become easier to obtain, we will have a strong year for new construction in 2022. The market needs that more than anything.”
