Things are looking up for housing, and that's welcome news to home builders and homebuyers alike, after housing sales activity sank to a 30-year low during 2023.

Following a week when we saw the biggest drop in mortgage rates since May last year and Mortgage Bankers Association data also showed a 10% uptick in mortgage applications for the week ending Jan. 12, National Association of Home Builders' CEO Jim Tobin had a positive outlook on what's in store for housing during the coming five to six years.

We're going to see homebuilders meet that pent-up demand for single-family and multifamily housing, so I'm very optimistic."
