2022 Year End New Home Discounts, Incentives, Rebates!

**Sept. 28th: Bank of England PIVOTS. Changes coming.**

Dallas Fort Worth area new home builders went from early year CIGAR-SMOKING FAT CATS to the home BUILDER SOUP LINES but how long this sudden buyer opportunity will last is UNKNOWN and already monetary policies are beginning to change.

Currently, panicked DFW area Home Builders have SCADS of unsold new home inventory heading into yearend that they desperately need to sell or face crippling bank lending restrictions and higher interest costs next year. As a result, they are listening to offers regardless of discounts shown in MLS.

Easy Home Buy-out Services - Buyer Beware

You may have missed that the FTC just recently sued and ordered Opendoor to pay a $62 Million Dollar fine for deceiving consumers. For years I have been advising that the only way to ensure earning top dollar selling your property is to prepare your home, hire a Realtor®, and list it in MLS (See: The Real Cost of a Home Buy-Out Offer). Selling your home directly to the public, and avoiding difficult-to-understand middleman costs, is the only way to avoid potential equity-reducing financial disappointments, so "Caveat Emptor" when considering an easy way out of your home.

Will 2022 Be The Year The U.S. Housing Market Corrects?

Of course, I don't hold tomorrow's economic headlines in my hands, but on a historical basis, the U.S economy is long overdue for a correction, and who knows what this so-called RESET will do. Then the 2020 pandemic triggered a pronounced wave of extraordinary inflation and an unprecedented dislocation of the world's critical supply chains that still haunt our markets.

Huge government bailouts and emergency spending soon followed adding helicopter money to an economy whose factories were ordered to curtail operations and that triggered today's crisis of inflation caused by too much currency chasing too few goods. How come our so-called experts suddenly seem to be anything but experts?

Will Sentiment Change from Easy to a Tighter Money Supply?
