We are swamped with work right now.....dozen or more houses to build that are all presold....at prices that are hard to believe.
I've got to train someone else to do kitchen and stairs.... so I can take some time off this summer.

Home prices today! Wow! How did we get here? I know I'm getting older and times have changed.....but low $600,000.....for a modest sized home.....never thought I'd see this. But I'm comparing it to when I built a small cape on a 1 1/2 acre lot I paid $6,700 for and $22,500 loan to build it with. Good God seems like ancient history.

In North Attleboro they are selling mobile homes (1400 sq. ft.) in a 55 and older park for $410,000!!!
They are ordering 12 at a time and can't keep them.

And I believe most trailer parks the people don't own the land at the end of the day so it equates to a pretty darn expensive camper and campsite

Our neighbor had a shoddy home built maybe eight years ago, leaked like no tomorrow and they would find one source and another would develop, the builder eventually said see you go sue me. Instead she sold it two weeks ago in three days for $680,000 cash. Itís a three bedroom I wouldnít give you $400,000 for. Iíve hinted to Peg we should consider cashing out but I donít see her considering it in the near future.

20 years from now that will be a million dollar house. People were saying this back in 2002 when there was a big boom in prices. Back then that house would have been around 300k.

So obviously my house is worth alot more than my original investment plus improvements...but replacement costs....needing another place to live..... would negate any gain. Also is the decent sized workshop I built on the property that is something I could never go without.
The market has gone up and down with housing booms and slowdowns....high and low interest rates and now rapidly rising prices.
One thing that has never changed is my ability to find an abundance of work throughout the years........never been laid off....although sometimes i could have used a break.
Anyway...I will never sell my house....no better place out there for us. We've been here since just before the blizzard of '78... lost power for ten days......but as young newlyweds we hardly noticed.



Hoping to pass the property on to my kids when I leave...

You are correct, $410K for the unit itself and that park is $595.00 a month for the land lease. They do cut your grass, mulch your beds, trim bushes/trees, remove snow from driveway and walk ways and provide trash removal .hey do not have a basement being a trailer and there are so many restrictions but I suppose they are fine for the people that buy them....not for me. I build a lot of these parks and we currently have a waiting list of over 12 months to get a new unit.

I dont think the cost of building a new home will level out anytime soon....Its been rising rapidly...especially in the last two years.
Same house we were selling then...went from the high $300 thousand range to now low $600,000 dollars. Our other developments with larger lots and houses are already close to or over a million.

Most likely material prices will continue to increase dramatically over the next few years......and it appears to be closely related to energy costs and policies.

At this point it doesnt seem possible that either one of my two sons, who both work hard at decent jobs will ever be able to afford even a modest new home.

We bought our land for $7,500 and build our house for $33k. All back in 73, 74. We were recently offered $1.3M. INSANE!!!

The problem is where the hell do you go if you sell? Very limited inventory and prices, as everyone has pointed out, are sky high.

No boat, back in the suds.
