Find A New Home – 2021 Edition

If you have become frustrated trying to find a new home in this crazy 2021 real estate market, you are not alone. A number of factors have combined to create the “perfect storm” seller’s market leaving homebuyers scrambling to submit bids on the shrinking available inventory of homes for sale. Many homes are selling well above asking price as homebuyers compete to buy a new home while interest rates remain at historic lows.

What is fueling the buying frenzy?

  • Low inventory, partly from millennial homebuyers entering the market
  • Rising construction costs
  • Historically low-interest rates
  • Covid lockdown and working from home make people more aware of the deficiencies with their current home or apartment

A recent Business Insider article about why Goldman Sachs says the housing shortage will last for years  mentioned, “… millennial homeownership is causing the US to run out of houses, with millennial demand intensifying the starter-home shortage that existed even before the pandemic due to factors including rising construction costs, restrictive zoning rules, and real-estate investors snapping up starter homes in hopes of making a profit.”

Will there be another housing market crash?

While the current housing market frenzy may seem eerily similar to the pre-2008 market crash, there are some important differences that should prevent a similar outcome.

The housing bubble that caused the Great Recession was based on easy credit that allowed homebuyers to purchase homes with nothing down and speculate on real estate with little to no skin in the game. With no way to sell the homes for the value of the mortgage when the bubble burst and home prices plummeted, having little-to-no equity in their homes made it easy to walk away from their mortgages.

Today’s market is completely different in that regard. While the historically low interest rates make it easier to buy a home, homebuyers are still required to have a down payment and the rising costs of homes are based on real factors such as land and material costs, remote and relocation workers, and millennials entering the housing market.

  • Currently about 70% of homeowners have more than 20% equity in their home
  • Price increases are based on something real
  • Housing demand will continue to grow for years to come

New Construction

With less than two months’ supply of available homes on the market, many homebuyers are looking at new construction as an alternative to pre-owned homes. Homebuilders are constantly developing new communities and homesites, and putting new homes on the market, adding to the available inventory of homes.

However, the homebuilding industry has been hit hard with rising material and land costs, especially in the last year. According to the NAHB, “Lumber prices have skyrocketed more than 300% since April 2020, causing the average price of a new single-family home to increase by nearly $36,000.”

Between the unpredictable price of materials and land coupled with supply-chain issues caused by the pandemic, many homebuilders are taking homes off the market, or not listing them until their homes are far enough along that the builder’s cost can be accurately assessed. This has led to even more homebuyer frustration with buyers scrambling to find new homes in the areas they want to live.

new home price index

Solutions For Homebuyers

To help meet the increasing demand for new homes and help their buyers meet their closing date, many homebuilders are temporarily changing how they do business. Homes and homesites in new communities are under limited-release restrictions as builders can’t accurately predict how much the homes will cost them to build a few months down the road.

The new construction norm of homebuyers being able to pick a homesite and floorplan with options and upgrades are being put on hold in many markets as homebuilders are dealing with backorders in almost every area as well as the skyrocketing price of lumber.

To solve some of these common issues, McKee Homes is starting to choose specific floorplans, options and upgrades for each available homesite in most of our new and upcoming communities and phases. That way the materials can be ordered far enough in advance to get the home completed without major delays. This allows our homebuyers to feel confident they can close and move into their new homes according to the preset dates and schedules set when the contract is signed.

We look forward to reopening our design studios for selections as soon as material costs and supply-chain issues have normalized.

Find A New Home

Is it possible to find a new home for a reasonable price in today’s housing market?

McKee Homes has quick move-in home inventory in select communities in their Raleigh, Wilmington, Pinehurst and Fayetteville area markets. With new communities and phases in existing communities opening soon, we are doing our best to help our homebuyers find the home of their dreams in this crazy housing market.

Our award-winning designs are built with quality in mind and backed by our 2-10 homeowner’s warranty. Our warranty includes 10 YEARS of structural warranty, 2 YEARS of distribution systems such as electrical, HVAC and plumbing, and 1 YEAR workmanship and materials defects.

Financing Your New Home

Once you find a new home, are you prepared to act quickly to secure it?

In the current real estate market, being able to quickly get prequalified and know you can obtain a mortgage by a certain date can be the difference between owning a new home or missing out on the home of your dreams.

It’s also crucial to know you are getting the best deal possible and are working with a mortgage company that can deliver the best rate and keeps the process moving so you can close on time.

Vision Lending Services was created to do all that and more for McKee Homes’ homebuyers. The Vision Lending team is available seven days a week and makes sure that every step of the home buying process is simple, easy to understand and as transparent as possible.

Wilmington NC New Homes Under $300K

New homes under $300k are now available in two Wilmington, NC area new home communities by McKee Homes.

Current Housing Market

With mortgage interest rates at historical lows and very little available inventory, the red-hot housing market is making it difficult for homebuyers to find a home to purchase. New homebuyers are often having to bid above asking price for what few available homes are still on the market. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, the “U.S. Housing Market Is Nearly 4 Million Homes Short of Buyer Demand”.

Because of the lack of inventory in the resale market, many homebuyers are looking at new construction as an option. However, they are finding a similar lack of quick move-in homes in the new construction market. To make matters worse, the cost of new homes has gone up over the last year because of shortages of labor, materials and developed land. Many home builders can no longer guarantee when new construction homes will be completed because of supply-chain issues and material shortages, which further complicates the issue.

Wilmington NC New Homes Under $300K

McKee Homes has been able to provide some relief to homebuyers looking to buy a new home in the North Carolina coastal region near Wilmington, NC. We have recently added new phases to two communities in the greater Wilmington area. New South Bridge and Seaside Bay have new model homes as well as completed, or nearly completed quick move-in homes. For homebuyers, finding quick move-in new homes under $300K is a welcome opportunity to find the home of their dreams in a tough home market.

New Home Loans Through Vision Lending Services

Vision Lending Services offers conventional, government and specialty new home loans delivered with a consistently positive customer experience for homebuyers.

New Home Loans

In the current real estate market, being able to quickly get prequalified and know you can obtain a mortgage by a certain date can be the difference between owning a new home or missing out on the home of your dreams.

It’s also crucial to know you are getting the best deal possible and are working with a mortgage company that can deliver the best rate and keeps the process moving so you can close on time.

Vision Lending Services was created to do all that and more for McKee Homes’ homebuyers. The Vision Lending team is available seven days a week and makes sure that every step of the home buying process is simple, easy to understand and as transparent as possible.

Types of New Home Loans

The type of mortgage you use to finance your home influences how much you need for the down payment, whether or not you will need mortgage insurance, and how long it will take you to pay off your loan.

Vision Lending Services Loan Programs

Conventional Loans

  • Conventional Home Loans are available for qualifying borrowers with good credit, low debt-to-income ratio, and varying sizes of down payments.
  • Fannie Mae HomeReady® provides a low down payment mortgage with cancellable mortgage insurance once home equity reaches 20%.
  • Freddie Mac Home Possible® is a 3-5% down payment mortgage with flexible down payment sources and cancellable mortgage insurance.

Government Loans

  • FHA Loans are a government-backed mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), so borrowers can secure a reasonable interest rate with a lower down payment.
  • VA Loans allow Active Duty Military, Reservists, National Guard, Veterans, and Eligible Surviving Spouses to secure mortgage financing, often with no money down.
  • USDA Loans are guaranteed by the United States Department of Agriculture. They are available with no down payment and the option to finance the 1% funding fee and other closing costs.

Vision Lending Services

Vision Lending Services is a joint venture partnership between McKee Homes and CMG Financial designed to deliver a consistent customer experience and offer a variety of products to appeal to more homebuyers.

In an interview by Chris George, CEO of CMG Financial with Pat McKee, owner of McKee Homes, published on RISMedia, Pat McKee states, “Unlike other partnerships, a joint venture is an extension of your own team. When you’ve got multiple preferred lenders all of a sudden, they’re not preferred anymore. There’s no consistent customer experience, and you lose the benefits you get from having a single partner.  When you’ve formed a joint venture, both entities have an equal vested interest in its success.

Our joint venture, Vision Lending Services, started with several McKee Homes employees who had been working locally with CMG Financial employees. We’d trusted them as our mortgage lender for about 10 years—almost since the day we started our business. It was amazing to see how quickly everybody got on board with the joint venture…and how quickly we started converting customers to Vision Lending Services.”
