Negative Equity Impacts Home Supply Positively

According to CoreLogic, negative home equity is actually driving a drop in REO properties and the overall supply of unsold properties. The result is an increase in home prices. The home supply is at the lowest number in more than five years – sitting at six and a half months.

Negative equity makes people more reluctant to put their homes on the market, leading to a lower supply. It also makes buyers more hesitant.

This results in higher home prices for those that are on the market due to lower demand.
