The residential real estate story continues to revolve around the low supply of homes for sale, thus a surge in new homes being built would be a great thing to see. Existing home sale are at all-time highs in some areas; however, home builders have not been able to keep up with demand for new inventory replenishment. It will be interesting to see if this will improve after national manufacturing production had a large increase last month.
