The present Georgia housing market is experiencing a remarkable recovery both in terms of speed and volume. During the month of May, new home sales were up 31% from the previous year, and the first three weeks of June 2020 are trending up 29% over last June. Additionally, 2020 new home permits and under contracts continue to project a strong upward trend, indicating a healthy market for builders and their customers. During the panel discussion, Forsman and Lane explain how the New Homes Division quickly pivoted to provide integrated services for all of their builder clients in the wake of COVID-19.
"Everything you learn in adversity ultimately becomes something that makes you better. We jumped in and embraced it, and I could not be prouder of my team," said Lane. "Throughout this experience, we have been analyzing all the tools we currently use and have looked at what is working and driving traffic, so that we can create repeatable strategies that end in results for each client and community. Our goal is to make the experience people have online so meaningful that when they drive out to your community, they are ready to make a purchasing decision."
With the Georgia housing market exhibiting a positive incline, the New Homes Division is committed to continually find ways to take advantage of this opportunity and maximize the return on investment for clients, ultimately leading to more sales for their builders and developers. Although the team has a significant presence in the digital sales world, they also recognize the need for human interaction and have gone the extra mile to create a safe and healthy homebuying experience at all of their client's communities.
"The real estate market in 2020 has truly come full circle," stated Forsman. "We are now seeing a positive uptick in sales and inventory, and that is great news for our clients, customers, and the overall economy. I want to thank John Hunt for hosting this incredible event and for his continued support of our New Homes Division and all of the services we provide for our clients."
