New Construction is on the rise! This is not just my opinion. One of the major newspapers in the Twin Cities wrote on April 30th that "...builders on track to have one of their best years since 1997". I've been watching the MLS and the sales figures of Completed New Construction, Under Construction, and To-Be-Builts since the beginning of the year have grown. Jan-135, Feb-169, Mar-242, Apr-246, and May-286. Watch for my next blog entry on why New Construction might be a better option than buying an existing home!
