Town & Country Fall 2016



BUILDERS: LIST YOUR SALES WITH THE MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE
Twenty-six percent of builders are seeing signed sales contracts fall though the cracks because appraisals on their homes are coming in below the contract sales price, according to a nationwide survey conducted by NAHB.

The survey showed that nearly 60% of the builders are reporting that inadequate appraisals are causing serious problems in the market, with the biggest problem being comparables of new single-family homes that are too often based on foreclosures and distressed sales.
