Piggy-backing off of the article on August 2nd of Inspirada’s model complex opening, the Review-Journal continues to give Inspirada props for being a positive glimpse into the future of home building recovery in southern Nevada. While new home sales the first half of 2014 have been less than what was expected, Inspirada could potentially increase permit activity in the market by 10-20% over the next six-18 months. There are early sings among the three of Inspirada’s four developers that sales…
