    So how did supposedly “more constrained” areas like Las Vegas and California’s central valley end up with so many empty homes???

    Two points i would like to make here….

    1. What is the constraint? Building permits? Land availability? Labor?

    2. For “constrained” read urban/suburban, for “unconstrained” read rural. Now it’s not exact. Dallas/Fort Worth looks unconstrained to me. and San Bernadino county is marked as constrained but it shows the whole county and no one was builing along the Nevada border.
