This Week in Mortgage Sports

$4 Gas And How Does That Effect Us?

I do a lot of driving, and I love the freedom of having my own car, but I must say I do no where near as much driving as some of my Real Estate friends.  Previewing homes, showing homes, and all the other mobile tasks of an agent are proving to be more expensive at $4/ gallon.  Many agents are relying more and more on the Internet for their previewing and narrowing of prospective homes.  Finding cost saving tools can be difficult in a tangible industry where clients do actually need to visit a home before making a decision.  Challenging times indeed.

Let's look at this from the angle of the buyer.  Fuel costs have doubled in the past few years and are putting a terrible strain on many of our suburban friends.  Not only in their daily commute, but also in their home energy cost.  The tall ceilings, large square footage, and inefficient features are proving now to be a burden.  As an example in our own market, please look at the number of homes for sale in Frisco alone.  

Re-Urbanization is making more sense every day.  People are rediscovering the need to shorten commutes, and make home floor plans more efficient.
