Builders are not only building in the old neighborhoods they abandoned a few years ago. They are building entire new subdivisions.

Toll Brother, Richmond. Standard Pacific, Shea Homes are just a few of the builders that are putting in brand new neighborhoods in Douglas County, CO.

Take note this is very important to understand. If you are considering selling your home then the next 6 months might be the best time to sell. Why? Builders are going to flood the market with new homes and new home communities. This will create more competition for the resale market which will in turn drive resale prices down. Let’s face it, we all love the look, feel and idea of moving into a nice new home with all the great features.
