Third Quarter New Home Sales Increases in Northern Nevada
The Builders Association of Northern Nevada announced that new home sales in Northern Nevada continue to remain higher than 2006. Third quarter 2007 sales are up around 10 percent from third quarter of last year. In late 2006, builders began publishing huge incentives essentially creating an incentive war with each other to compete for buyers. Now builders in Northern Nevada are no longer publishing the same level of incentives. The trend has turned to working with serious buyers on an individual basis rather than mass marketing price cuts or incentives. Experts believe low unemployment and higher paying jobs for skilled workers will help continue to bring new home buyers into the area.
