Por Fred Durso, Jr. Si usted es un “números persona,” you’ll thoroughly enjoy this article by a sprinkler advocate that calls into question a 2014 report by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), titledState and Metro House Prices: the ‘Priced Out Effect.'The report cites how new construction regulations can impact housing affordability and lead to a staggering number ofpriced-outhouseholds.

But take a closer look at NAHB’s report and you’ll notice some misleading findings, says Buddy Dewar, vice president of Regional Operations
