Below is a great graphic obtained from the Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS. The graphic illustrates the monthly fluctuations of median sales prices for new construction homes versus previously owned homes.
Note the gap between the two at year end. It's easy to say that new construction was a great opportunity just a few months back and they may be pricing themselves out of the market.
