Well, according to the stats "new home starts" are up in double digits over last year. And, with the major reduction in inventory this year, I suspect new home starts will stay high for quite some time as the entire industry continues to improve. Inventory is low because we are finally slowing down on all of the "lender mediated" properties, so there are more traditional sale properties on the market. That means prices are also on the rise as traditional sales generally garner a higher price than lender mediated properties.
Good luck, Teddy!!
