DR HORTON TAKES AIM AT AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN NEW CONSTRUCTION VENTURE




I'm so glad to finally see a major developer address the growing problem of affordable housing.  Just this week NAR came out with current statistics on housing in the US and it was staggering.  The average home price has risen again and now hovers at $290,000.  Newsflash:  many Americans struggle to purchase a home just 1/2 that price.  And part of that struggle is actually finding a home for 1/2 that price.  In Florida the average new construction single family home starts in the high $200,000's, but if DR Horton has their way, they will change all of that.  

Pictured above is their newest model in a line of affordable homes they call "Express Homes" which will be priced between $120,000 and $150,000.  The products will not allow for any updgrades, just a turnkey product.  The builder is first establishing a market in Florida, Georgia and Texas, but plans to hit aggressive targets in this key locations.  Stay tuned to my blog for further DR Horton Express Homes product roll-out.  And like any other builder product, I will rebate you 1% of the base price of the home at closing, making any home you buyer through me an even better deal for your family!
