It Could Be The Perfect Time To Build Your Dream Home
While we’re still seeing a low supply of homes for sale today, the number of newly built homes is steadily increasing. If you’ve been holding off on selling because you weren’t sure you’d be able to find a home to move into, newly built homes and those under construction can provide the options you’ve been waiting for.
The latest Census data shows the inventory of new homes is increasing this year (see graph below):
With more and more new homes being built and put on the market, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from when you’re ready to buy. Of course, if you do consider a new construction, you’ll want to keep a close eye on timing of the project. The supply shown in the graph above includes homes at various stages of the construction process – some are near completion while others may be months away.
According to Robert Dietz, Chief Economist and Senior VP for Economics and Housing Policy for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB):
“28% of new home inventory consists of homes that have not started construction, compared to 21% a year ago.”
Buying a home near completion is great if you’re ready to move. Alternatively, a home that has yet to break ground might benefit you if you’re ready to sell and you aren’t on a strict timeline. You’ll have an even greater opportunity to design your future home to suit your needs. No matter what, your trusted real estate advisor can help you find a home that works for you.
