According to REALTOR Mag, Builders Are Shying Away From Building Starter Homes
The median new home price for 2015 is well over $280,00 in most markets.
Three Reasons why starter homes are losing traction are:
Land costs are higher
Higher fees in building such communities. Builders often face significant infrastructure and expanded support service costs, which could add an extra 20% to 25% of the cost of a new home.
The typical "entry-level" buyer may not want a "starter" home any longer.
