Updates from Builders: College Station’s Parade of Homes & Lumber Prices

This weekend and next, the Greater Brazos Valley Builders Association is hosting its bi-annual Parade of Homes. This is a great opportunity for those who want to experience the latest trends and craftsmanship in homebuilding in the Brazos Valley. More information about the event and where one can purchase tickets can be found at the Greater Brazos Valley Builders Association website here.

Also, since joining the Greater Valley Builders Association and its affiliates the Texas Association of Builders and the National Association of Homebuilders earlier this year, I’ve enjoyed listening in on the conversation of what it takes for our builders to supply new housing. One of the major topics of discussion currently is the escalating price and shortage of lumber. This video from the Wall Street Journal provides a great explanation of what is going on in this market.
