Builders Have Little Incentive to Create More McMansions and Hardly Anyone is Buying. There are Deals Out There, But You Better Act Fast.
- If you're looking to buy a brand-new McMansion in the 'burbs, you'd better act fast. With home prices this low there's not much incentive for builders to start new houses. And inventories are getting razor-thin: Economists and analysts at the National Association of Home Builders fall construction conference in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday pointed out that the current 7.3-month supply of new homes is the lowest it's been since 1992.
Moreover, most of the summer's pickup in home sales and starts, which has since abated, could be attributed to the $8,000 first-time home buyer's tax credit. With that credit slated to end on Nov. 30—and with continuing problems securing money to build—builders have little incentive to ramp up their production of new homes.
Many places will take years to rebound. Rockville, Md. builder Robert Mitchell says these days he'll only build a home when he has contract in hand, because his lenders won't advance money for speculative building. "We sold off our standing inventory," he says.
