Over the past couple of years, the housing market in Florida has been turning itself around from its lows during the economic downturn of 2008. But, while this is good news for most home owners, it has also created a much higher demand for new construction, in turn, sparking a lack of inventory for many new home builders.
In the fall of 2016, the U.S. Department of Commerce reported that lack of inventory is holding back the sale of new homes – not just in Florida, but around the country as well – and because of this, new home sales figures are actually dropping. In fact, one of the biggest issues that is weighing on the housing market is lack of both existing and new home sales.
According to the Commerce Department’s figures, the demand for spec and inventory homes is far exceeding supply in some cases, particularly in areas of North Florida, where builders are competing with resales in a tight market.
In Central Florida, the National Association of Realtors reported even as far back as mid-2015 that new home construction was at its highest level in more than seven years, with construction starts up by roughly 20 percent, and home construction permits up by 10 percent.
