New construction is benefiting from Snohomish County’s weak inventory numbers and, since the first of the year, the number of sold new construction homes sold has skyrocketed. At the end of January, the top 4 were DR Horton, Polygon, Encore, and Pacific Ridge Homes; that has not changed yet some did swap positions. Leading the new construction builder pack after 2012′s first quarter is [drum roll please] Encore Homes with 40 units. The jump from 2nd to 1st came in the form of sales in their new plat Magnolia Estates (Arlington‘s Gleneagle and Eagle Heights neighborhoods) and sales trickling in from the Marysville Meadows.
In 2nd and 3rd position are DR Horton and Polygon who have strong Snohomish County. Complimenting their Snohomish County sales, DR Horton and Polygon have a diversified building area to bolster their Tri County sales. I look for these 4 to continue their sales volumes yet I am wondering where these 4 will start building in the county next. Critchlow, on the other hand, is a builder I know virtually nothing about as I’ve never sold one of their products.
