Thinking about finally making your custom dream home a reality? Apparently you’re not alone, reports the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). New home builder confidence in the single-family, new housing market at its highest peak since November 2005, and new homes sales are also on the rise.

Declining unemployment rates and steady job growth are increasing the demand for new homes among consumers, explained David Crowe, NAHB Chief Economist. This demand is “contributing to a gradual upward trend in builder confidence.”

Builder Confidence, New Home Sales Hit Record Levels

New home builders throughout the U.S. are also reporting a surge of buyer interest and traffic since the early summer, which is translating into record numbers of new home sales. In August, 504,000 new homes were sold, a level not seen since 2008.

Builders and economists expect this trend to continue in the next six months.
