Well, I can tell you that there are 32 sold homes under construction in the Woodlands right now.
I'm sure things are much slower than was predicted two years ago...still with prices at the levels they are right now, they are getting people to pull the trigger.

Many of my neighbors still have a house to sell up north...not pretty.

What I hear from several sources is that there are lots of people ready to buy here...but won't till they sell what they're sitting on.... and that's not happening.

IMHO...it's going to be a long....ugly....recession... hang on.

That is encouring that they have scheduled homes underway.
We too are going to "ride it out" before making a move.

I say that we have had the WORST experience by purchasing a Centex Home. We are all suffering in our neighborhood with cracks in the foundation, cracked tile, outside walls etc.

^^^I don't know where you live, but many home builders built on soft land in my area (land that was left over in my opinion). I remember shaking my head driving past homes being built on these soft lands in my area and thinking, who is going to buy a home on those lands. Those homes are going to have settling issues because of the soft land, sure enough many are now. Sometimes the buyers are also responsible to do their own research. Were you new to the area and didn't know the area well enough?
