2. I'm surprised the article never mentioned inflated lumber prices

as a factor in driving up home prices and in causing a drop in numbers of new homes being built. No builder wants to add $30,000 to the cost of building a home, that they might not be able to recoup if the lumber prices drop back before the house goes on the market!
