New home construction booming locally

The positive national numbers of the recent new home building were similar locally last month.  The Commerce Department states that new home construction in the U.S. was up over three percent from October and was nearly 14 percent higher than a year ago.  Sales and Art Designer Jeff Dorner of Van’s Lumber & Custom Builders in Dyckesville and Egg Harbor, says as long as the economy stays strong, 2020 should be another great year for builders in the area.



Dorner says the challenge for builders is finding subcontractors who are in high demand.  The U.S. Commerce Department statistics also showed a post-recession high for building permits of 1.46 million in November.
