Save Thousands Before November 1st FeaturedTuesday, 10 October 2017 00:00
If you've been waiting for the right time to start building a new custom home on your lot, NOW is truly the best time. A shortage of construction workers is pushing the costs of building a home higher and higher as Texas begins to rebuild from Hurricane Harvey.
Design Tech Homes is doing its best to absorb many of the initial increases. However, we can only hold our prices for about 30 days. So, if you act quickly during the month of October, you can potentially save thousands of dollars on your new custom home before prices increase on November 1st.
From recent news reports...
“Before Harvey, construction workers across the U.S. were already in tight supply and material costs were rising. Houston is likely to face such a severe crunch that it could affect the national economy by pushing up material costs,” according to Robert Dietz, chief economist at the National Association of Home Builders. “Lumber and drywall prices were up in 2017 before Harvey, and prices are likely to shoot higher…”
"It's going to be a monumental challenge that is going to be frustrating for people who just want to get their lives back," said Scott Norman, executive director of the Texas Association of Builders.
“Wages and material prices also are expected to rise, potentially by double-digit percentages, based on the historical example of Hurricane Katrina in 2005,” according to real estate tracker John Burns Consulting.
