New Homes sales-Bad News

Although existing real estate sales in our MLS have been down this year new home construction has been hammered. I think it is a result of banks not lending for speculative building and buyers finding homes that are almost new for much less than builders can build new homes for. Unfortunately this trend might last for some time. Consider the data below. The data below represents homes sales in each year, Jan.1-Oct.9
