News and trends from the 2013 Builders' Show

A revitalized housing market energizes this annual event

Published: January 2013

Our team of editors, market analysts, and television producers attended the 2013 International Builders' Show in Las Vegas. With the housing market in the midst of a bona fide rebound—home prices rose 4.3 percent in the 12 months ending in October, according to the latest Case-Shiller 20-City Composite—we enjoyed one of the more energized shows since the bottom fell out of the market in 2007.

As in years past, we filmed, blogged, tweeted, and posted news to our website as well as our Twitter feed and  Facebook page.
