If you’ve been on the fence about building a new home, now is a great time to build a new home. According to a recent article on KSL.com, prices on existing homes are higher than ever before. Homes in the Wasatch Front area are climbing. The average price of a single family home has increased from $275,000 to $300,000. This is good news if you’re selling your home, not so good if you’re looking to buy.

The main reason for the increase in price is that there is simply no inventory of existing homes available.
