Home price appreciation for new construction homes always seems to lag the rest of the market. After all, when a sale completes on the MLS it is from 6 months to a year ago (date when the new construction contract is signed and then the home built). That said we are now starting to see these price increases reflect in the sales stats. How long these increases will continue remains to be seen.
