Today, in the Calculated Risk Real Estate Newsletter: Homebuilder Comments in December: “Still a ton of demand for new homes”

A brief excerpt: Some homebuilder comments courtesy of Rick Palacios Jr., Director of Research at John Burns Real Estate Consulting (a must follow for housing on twitter!):

Here is Rick’s summary of builder comments for various markets (emphasis added in bold):

Home builder survey results are in for full month of December. Top themes: 1) Still a ton of demand for new homes. 2) Rampant construction material & labor shortages. 3) Bit of chatter on possible margin compression several quarters ahead. Market commentary to follow…

#Atlanta builder: “Have virtually no available inventory & huge backlog of 1,000+ units going in to 2022. Still metering sales in most communities, where the demand of waiting buyers still outnumbers our supply.”

#LasVegas builder: “Busiest orders for December I can remember in a long time.”

#Charlotte builder: “Haven’t seen this hot of a new homebuilding market in 27 years in Charlotte. Reminds me of the go-go days in the late 1980’s right before the S & L’s (Savings & Loan Crisis) rocked my new homebuilding world in Southern California.”There is much more in the article.
