Question of the Week (54:50)
Which scenario do you think is more likely to indicate that a home building company is firing on all cylinders? I think the case can be made for both, and yet I’m drawn to one over another.
1. They outperform other builders in a highly competitive market with lots of new homes sold each year as a large % of overall real estate transactions. (high volume market)
2. They outperform a small pool of competition from other builders, but they operate in a market where new home sales volume is a tiny fraction of overall real estate transactions? (low volume market)
