Home buyers who seek something brand new may be able to score a deal. Although real estate prices have been on the rise generally, there are exceptions. The cost of buying new-construction has fallen to its lowest point in the last 12 months, realtor.com® reports.
The median price of a new home fell nearly 6.9 percent from March to April, reaching $312,400, the Commerce Department reported this week. The price is up just 0.4 percent from a year ago.
