12 specs have sold since the last Spec MarketScorecard four weeks ago.
Plus, May marks the third month in a row in which a thirdof the new specs that hit the market have sold.All in, spec sales are slightly off 2011’s heady pace, but combined pitch and spec salesare up 8% over last year despite relatively low numbers for May so far. Here are ourfavorite highlights from the past four weeks:•Three studios bought two specs each (
