ABSTRACT
The article discusses various developments in the housing industry in the U.S. western states. It is revealed that the state of housing market in the area experiences an uncertain situation with the increasing foreclosure rates. However, it is also evident that lawmakers strive hard to revive the housing market when they passed a law that allows counties to regulate developments larger than 35 acres of land. It is also the concern to associate housing with sustainable green development through some projects that emphasize on establishing eco-friendly houses.
