Home prices increased year on year but sales were considerably lower, and properties took a lot longer to sell. While spec homes were immediately selling, I am now seeing more sit on the market. Home builders are also starting to offer incentives. If this keeps up, to mitigate risk builders will soon only build based on sales contracts and reduce/stop spec homes (homes built without a sales contract).
