    Lets see, we are on pace to build ~ 125 homes this year. We have 1500 lots now approved in Central. At that rate, it will take ~12 years to fill these lots. Do you think we may be approving too many subdivisions ? As average Joe, I kinda think so but what do I know ? Also a little quoted stat lately that was big news last year is that average cost per sq ft in Central has dropped from $135 to about $115.Many foreclosures in All 4 of the major new developments. That may tell us something but again, I’m just average Joe and what do I know ?
