Middle_of_the_road | Feb 19, 2013 10:10 AM ET Limited availability of labor? Wasn`t the construction industry one of the hardest hit areas during the recession?

MrSquiggles | Feb 19, 2013 10:14 AM ET Recession, recession, recession.

LoganMohtashami | Feb 19, 2013 10:17 AM ET In the Big Picture it`s still the Home Builders It`s less that 1/12th of the entire housing market and they are so far away from their 50 year average of new home sales. However, think about this. They will never ever have it this good ever! - Because of so many home owners are underwater ( Can`t sell) and distressed homes aren`t coming out = Less Competition - They are coming off the worst 4 year builder period going back to 1959 so they have ample room to build - This is as good as it gets for affordability for them (Excluding their cash buyers) Even with all that, still far away from the normal 671-700 range of avg sales.
