If you’re looking for a home, what you should, what should you be doing

Tracy:

Well? So one of the things that I would suggest is let’s not give up let’s, you know, put your parameters together, keep looking this week to go. I had the opportunity to stop in at a few sales offices of new home builders and just chat with them. And they actually have some homes ready to buy today. And honestly, this weekend, they have some great incentives out there for buyers towards their closing costs or upgrades. If you want to build a house and pick your lot, but they do have some that are done or almost done. So there’s a great option. You’re not competing as much. You walk into the sales office and pick the house, pick the floor plan, or you pick one that’s already done. So I stopped in a Dr. Horton, Hakes brothers and a Pulte this week.

And that’s not just residential construction. I mean, everybody out there knows that it’s, it’s everywhere you know, supply chain problems. So anyway, that that new construction is coming. It’s just not enough for, for the, the demand that we have out there right now. And it’s probably going to continue that way. So if somebody is interested in new construction, which should
