For Week Ending August 6, 2016

Housing markets across the nation have mostly reached full recovery and are even approaching or achieving categorical highs in sales and prices, yet builders are still focusing on higher-end homes over starter homes in order to combat high land and building permit costs. Until there is more entry-level inventory on the market, sustainable balance will be difficult.
