There could be several reasons. As the namesake implies to many, a brutalist building is ugly and unfriendly. An "in-your-face" architecture. Most people who want a home built for them are probably looking for something easier on the eyes.
Another possibility might be that Brutalism was a short lived experiment in architecture, that also had a small following, mainly in Britain and France. Also, I believe that most so called brutalist buildings were based on social theory and were applied to larger buildings, such as state housing, hospitals, schools, etc.
