While It is not our intent to sell you on working with a Realtor, because you are reading this, we will assume you have an interest in doing so. If you are considering using a Realtor to help you find a NEW CONSTRUCTION HOME, you are not alone. According to the NAR (National Association of Realtors), nine out of ten home buyers use a Realtor to help them with their real estate purchase, be it a used home or a new one! This fact alone helped homebuilders come to the realization that the builder's competition is not the other builder, their rivalry is the Realtor because Realtors control nine out of ten QUALIFIED BUYERS in the market. QUALIFIED BUYERS are what homebuilders are competing for each and every day.
From all indications, the sellable housing market is going to remain tight for months to come, maybe years. If you have any questions, please visit our website and click on the Contact link at the top of the page or use the links right here...
