Nela Richardson, chief economist for Redfin, said housing affordability was never an issue in the presidential election. As a result, housing experts are uncertain as to what his policies are concerning this issue, and whether he will take any definitive steps to alleviate what she called a "crisis."

"Perhaps most uncertain about a Trump presidency is what will happen to housing markets because of policy change," Ralph McLaughlin, chief economist for Trulia, was quoted as saying in a story on HousingWire.

"Trump hasn't much discussed housing policy during his campaign, but he has hinted to 'Make America Great Again' by boosting the homeownership rate through demand-side policies, such as financial deregulation, rather than through supply-side policies such as reducing local impediments to new supply," McLaughlin said.
