Government Regulation in the Price of a New Home

By in Articles with 0 Comments

According to in a new study by Paul Emrath, Ph.D, the cost of government regulations in the price of a new home has gone up almost 30% in the last 5 years.  Moreover, these costs are rising more than twice as fast as the average person’s ability to pay for it.  Now, I’m sure that regulations improve the health and safety of a home, but I’m really not sure that houses are 30% safer now than they were 5 years ago, if at all.  And there are additional costly regulations on the horizon.  It would just be nice to be able to feel good about the fees that we are paying!

As Co-Owner of the company I serve various key roles such as, Office Manager, CFO, Loan Processor, and Marketing. Supporting our agents is the role I consider most vital and rewarding. I do this with good communication, efficiency and compassion that extends not just to our agents, but to each and every client, throughout their real estate or loan transactions and beyond. I enjoy getting to know each client throughout the process which I think contributes to my personal, yet professional style. I take building our business and brand seriously, and work hard at maintaining our reputation of being a trusted, experienced source in today’s challenging and complicated housing market.
