Answer to the Housing Shortage in San Antonio

#1 Answer to the Housing Shortage: New Construction! Actually, new construction has been a long time personal favorite and specialty. I got my first "new home" when I moved to San Antonio in 2004. It was an experience like no other - I was flying down from Chicago every 2 or 3 weeks watching the house being built. The project was memorialized in a new construction video. In later years, earned some additional certifications - the RCC (Residential Construction Certified) and the CNHS (Certified New Home Specialist) to better help folks interested in new construction. The good news in today's market is the builder confidence is up and more new homes are being built. New homes tend to be more energy efficient and can be very green. It gives the buyer many options to personalize. In the San Antonio market, depending on the type of home and the builder, construction can be started with good credit and very little money down. Some builders also offer special programs for veterans. If you have not considered new construction - a personalized new home of your own - or thought you could not afford it, call me and lets discuss the options. You have nothing to lose and no added cost. The builder pays the REALTOR commission. For more information about new homes helping to solve the housing shortage, have a look at today's article
