Housing expected to remain strong

Low interest rates, immigration should support market

By ERIC PALMER The Kansas City Star

The housing market had incomparable growth the last six years, but it has been a boom, not a bubble, housing experts told a Kansas City business gathering Tuesday.

While housing starts have nearly doubled since 1991 to 1.8 million starts last year, growth has been fueled by market forces that won't evaporate overnight, said Kent W. Colton, a scholar with the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University.

Home price appreciation has been more contained during the last five years than in any period for the last 30 years, and new-home inventories are at historic lows, Colton said.
