    Why We Need More Newly Constructed Homes | Simplifying The Market

    Bottom Line

    We need more new construction for two reasons:

    1. It will relieve some of the pent-up buying demand that is causing price appreciation to continue to increase well above historic norms.
    2. It will give better opportunities to many current homeowners who want to sell but can’t find an adequate home to move in to.
