Finished Lot Shortage Being Noticed by Tucson Homebuilders


lots sales 450x250Trends in land sales for the metro Tucson region over the past few years shows a limited supply of finished lots and the need for new lots from both Tucson Homebuilders and developers. Finished lot inventory continued to decline through the end of the year with an all-time low of only 3,025 finished lots in the market on December 31, 2015.

This trend does not appear to be changing as we enter into 2016 and is expected to be below 3,000 finished lots next year. This depletion of lots has builders scrambling to find replacement inventory as existing communities build out and the buying platted lots has become the norm for 2016.
