Boomers, Millennials and the McMansions No One Wants

But why?   Most sellers are also hoping to buy, so they are facing the same market constraints as buyers. Housing supply has not kept up with demand because building has become increasingly expensive. The fear of rising mortgage rates and equity concerns could encourage homeowners to stay put and renovate.
