New Home Lot Supply Index for select markets

Lot inventory reached new lows in nearly every top market across the country.

  • The markets that tightened the most on a year-over-year basis in 3Q20 were Nashville, San Diego, and Portland. San Diego and Nashville make up two of the three tightest markets in our index, while Portland falls more in the middle.
  • San Francisco and Los Angeles, two traditionally undersupplied markets, posted substantial increases in their lot supply year-over-year. This is due to both a slowdown in starts due to the pandemic, as well as an increase in vacant developed lots in more affordable areas.
  • Atlanta remains the market with the most relative supply in the country due to local market dynamics and where the lots are available, but lots are still down double-digits year-over-year.

“The hot housing market comes with a unique set of challenges. We should expect land prices to rise with multiple offers and for some builders to temporarily gap out on lots.” ~ Ali Wolf, Chief Economist at Zonda Economics
