Builders’ bonus: Weak competition from ‘newer’ homes
WASHINGTON – May 27, 2014 – A burst of new-home sales during the previous housing boom stirred up competition among U.S. home builders. After the bubble burst, there was a surplus of fairly new resale homes, which exacerbated builders’ problems: They not only faced lower buyer demand thanks to the recession, but still-interested buyers could get an almost-new home at a bargain foreclosure price.
These nearly new homes boasted modern design, landscaping and interior upgrades, low maintenance requirements, and lower prices – factors that posed formidable competitive challenges for builders.
Now, however, the new home market appears to be swinging in the opposite direction. Almost-new homes – one that would have been built during the height of the recession – are in short supply.
Buyers longing for new homes now must rely on builders since fewer enter the resale market.
The change, in some areas, has put home builders back in the driver’s seat in satisfying new buyer demand.
