South Florida Builders Face Lot Shortages

by Isaac Benmergui, Esq on May 20, 2013

Red$graph_cropDriving around, looking for available space to build homes, that’s what some surveyors are doing, logging thousands of miles just looking for space to put up a new home. As many homebuyers would rather buy a newly constructed home, builders must have land and lot to put one up.

As the spring real estate market heats up in the tri-county area, there is a worsening shortage of lots and buildable land. Builders end up bidding against one another, and the price of lots has risen sharply along with building material costs. Home prices are rising as a result of the builders’ costs rising. Instead of a risky investor mentality driving the market, actual costs of materials and land (which is a safer bet) are increasing and thrusting home value and prices higher.
