In 2018, 94 percent of single-family homes built in the East South Central portion of the U.S were built with porches, according to the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) and the U.S. Census Bureau.   This includes Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee—The Volunteer State, a state that we service.

Corcoran, a real estate broker, investor, best-selling author, podcast host, and executive producer of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” talked straight-up about today’s housing market and the conditions buyers currently face. Competition for homes remains stiff as potential buyers continue to contend for a scarce number of properties, driving up prices. With many buyers waiving contingencies on their home offers, in an attempt to make their offer more appealing to sellers, the market is no holds barred. House hunters, Corcoran says,

Millions more homebuyers could enter the housing market to contend for their dream homes this year than last, according to a recent survey by Zillow. In 2020 housing inventory was scarce and with this year’s construction permits up 14 percent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, homebuilders will try to make up for a dwindling inventory amongst eager buyers.  As it stands, listings for available homes are about half of what they were last year, according to realtor.com.
