Our Professional Buyer Services Can Help You Find Added Savings

Just because Drees Custom Homes in Dallas Fort Worth is not advertising their rock bottom new home prices in MLS, doesn't mean they don't exist! Home values are not based upon what the seller says they are worth, but what a buyer is willing to pay and that takes negotiations. Some communities with higher buyer demand maintain good margins for the builder, but not every community carries that prestige and not every homesite and floorplan earns top dollar.

Some communities are closing out, some are just getting started and need contracts, and some are just under performing on sales forecasts. That is where buyers can carry a biger stick into negotiations and cut a very nice bargain. Just click the Red Link Bar to begin viewing DFW area Drees Homes

4 Most Popular Bottom Line Investments in America | MyKCM

Every year, Gallup surveys Americans to determine their choice for the best long-term investment. Respondents are given a choice between real estate, stocks, gold, and savings accounts.

For the sixth year in a row, real estate has come out on top as the best long-term investment! That has not always been the case. Gallup explains:

“Between 2008 and 2010, covering most of the Great Recession period that saw plummeting home and stock values, Americans were as likely to name savings accounts or CDs as the best long-term investment as they were to name stocks or real estate.”

This year’s results showed that 35% of Americans chose real estate, followed by stocks at 27%. The full results are shown in the chart below.

Here's some positive housing news! Today's homebuyers can now find mortgage interest rates below 4% on 30-year money, and near 3.25% for 15-year money. Rates are the lowest they have been in over a year. Additionally, market forces are biased towards lower future interest rates. That makes now a great time to find your next home or to start a new construction "build-job" with a close date in 2020.

If you're looking to find a deal on a new home, I can help you connect to value, offer a Free New Home Move-up where you save half or even ALL of the traditional 6% listing commission, or a cool cash rebate that will put thousands of dollars back in your pocket.
