BIA Communications and Engagement Manager Morgan Davis is encouraged by the results for May of this year. 

"The North State BIA members averaged nearly 30 more sales per week this May, compared to the same month last year." Davis continued, "In addition to the growth in sales, the model home traffic was 2,000 people higher than the year before.  This continued growth in the first half of 2019 has been encouraging to the BIA members and the industry as a whole."
