Consumer Sentiment Crash, Lowest Level in Years for Buying, Selling Housing per Fannie Mae HPSI Survey, See Data; plus Manufactured Home Communities REITs, Manufactured Housing Stocks Update



It isn’t just Fannie Mae’s Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI) that is telling the public and housing professionals that this is the worst time in a decade for buying a home. A review of housing headlines reveals a range of challenges facing renters, housing seekers, and others. Gas prices at the pump has dropped in recent weeks, but other costs are rising. With housing routinely being the largest single item on a individual’s, couple’s or family’s budget, cost pressures rising finance rates and still climbing costs in housing has put people in an apparently more sour mood. Fannie Mae’s latest HPSI data to MHProNews is below. It is followed by our Daily Business News manufactured home community REITs and manufactured housing connected equities (stocks) report.


Consumer Sentiment Toward Housing at Lowest Level in Decade

Latest HPSI Reading Shows Consumers Increasingly Concerned by Both Homebuying and Home-Selling Conditions

WASHINGTON, DC – August 8, 2022 – The Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index® (HPSI) decreased 2.0 points in July to 62.8, its lowest level since 2011 and well below the all-time high set in 2019. Surveyed consumers continue to express pessimism about homebuying conditions, with only 17% of respondents reporting it’s a good time to buy a home. Meanwhile, the percentage of consumers believing it’s a good time to sell has begun ticking downward in recent months, falling from 76% in May to 67% in July. Overall, four of the index’s six components decreased month over month, including the component associated with home price growth expectations, which has fallen meaningfully over the past few months but remains positive on net. Year over year, the full index is down 13.0 points.

“The HPSI has declined steadily for much of the year, as higher mortgage rates continue to take a toll on housing affordability,” said Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae Senior Vice President and Chief Economist. “Unfavorable mortgage rates have been increasingly cited by consumers as a top reason behind the growing perception that it’s a bad time to buy, as well as sell, a home. Additionally, consumers appear to be indicating that selling conditions are softening, as the ‘Good Time to Sell’ component has declined meaningfully over the past two months, and, on net, fewer consumers expect home prices to go up. With home price growth slowing, and projected to slow further, we believe consumer reaction to current housing conditions is likely to be increasingly mixed: Some homeowners may opt to list their homes sooner to take advantage of perceived high prices, while some potential homebuyers may choose to postpone their purchase decision believing that home prices may drop. Overall, this month’s HPSI results appear to confirm our forecast for moderating home sales over the coming year.”

Additional Information with MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

While there has never been a time quite like this politically, economically, or socially in modern U.S. history, there have been prior phases of American history that had significant social and economic disruption. That noted, most Americans are naturally thinking about their own circumstances. It isn’t just the famous quip by former President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton’s advisor, James Carville – “It’s the economy, stupid.” It is the specific circumstances for the individual, couple, household, or family that is struggling at their desk, kitchen table, bed or sofa with how they can best navigate troubling times. A steady diet of platitudes and promises that in practice comes up for short everyday Americans of all backgrounds helps explain why special and off-year elections often went against Democrats.  When 3 short years ago, housing sentiment was at a high point, per Fannie Mae, is it any wonder why people are moving against the party in power when they are given a chance to vote? But the ‘votes’ are occurring in other ways too. Millions are leaving “blue” (i.e.: Democratic led) states for “red” (Republican governed) states.
