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.

November new home sales beat expectations from CNBC.

This morning Rick Santelli reported a surprise ~17% uptick in new home sales for last November. It is my opinion that the December sales report may be even better. As real mortgage interest rates decline, and as the Federal Reserve signals it will remain neutral with future rate increases, home sales are responding positively.

Benzinga is reporting that an industry analyst is turning more bullish for builder stocks in 2019, suggesting a modest correction to the upside for home builders. 

If you put off buying, you might want to reconsider. Banks are competing for your mortgage business and that has driven rates down from their 5% peak last year. New home prices, although still

Pacesetter Homes Offers an Extraordinary Master Suite

During the past month, I worked with a wonderful relocation couple who was looking for a very specific floorplan. They wanted both their boys downstairs, hence were really wanting 3 bedrooms down. They provided me with a list of 9 finalist homes and none of them had the exact floorplan they really wanted. However, to their delight, home number 9's MLS listing information was incorrect and it had the 3 bedrooms down floorplan, 1 Bedroom up, plus Game and Media Room they were hoping to find.

BINGO, they executed their contract on the 10th and closed on the 23rd! That's the power of a great lender, the Core Team of Supreme Lending in McKinney, TX. Thanks Lynn and David!

They got lucky and I can help you connect to the same floorplan, however
