The Crazy Days are Back, New Construction Stretches Out
The Crazy Days are Back, New Construction Stretches Out Labor Shortages Causing Longer Lead Times Today I worked with a customer contracting to build/buy a new home in Naples. Contract to move-in time was quoted to be nine months! Now, we're talking about a nice home but it is a builder's tract home model.What's causing the delay? In general, a labor shortage. Homes are lined up just waiting for the availability of labor and material to start the next phase.
We drove buy several homes in the state as the one pictured to the right. Blocks are up and they are sitting there waiting their turn for delivery of trusses and the labor to put them up. We were told that the shortage is nationwide.Now isn't that interesting...? Looking for work...?
