Hey Home Buyers.. New Home Construction Prices May Be RISING!
Excerpts from an article written for Real estate Daily News and was published by Realtor Magazine on January 29,2014 says that D.R. Horton, the largest U.S. home builder by homes sold, announced that strong sales will allow the company to raise prices for an early start of the spring home-selling season. Hey this is huge news for home buyers.
More contracts are being written on new home construction The article further stated "In January, and especially in this last week, our sales have been better than expected," says Donald Tomnitz, D.R. Horton's chief executive. "I feel that we're right on the cusp of a strong spring-selling season."
Add to that The National Association of Home Builders predicts that new-home sales will increase 40 percent in 2014 over 2013 and I would say we have a pretty agressive spring selling season on the horizon.
So if you are pretty sure this is the year you are going to be buying a brand new home I want to remind you that you need to make sure you are working with your very own Realtor® before even stepping inside that gorgeous model home. Not only does the above news mean you will be paying more for a new home but you may also end up paying thousands $$$ on top of that. No lie. Really.
Just remember...When you do not have your own agent with you when you walk through the door of the model home that has been calling your name, the sale person inside works for just the builder. They can not work in your best interest and the builders best interest at the same time. So since they already work for the builder they can NOT work for you. They will always like you alot and be really friendly and will even help you in all kinds of ways, other than, saving you money over making the builder money.
So what do you think?
It makes sense doesn't it?
Oh.... and it just so happens I do not represent the builder.
