For this blog, I’m doing something a little different. Today, I want to talk about a company that has values that line up very similarly to our values at Haven Real Estate, and who we are so very excited to be working with!
D.R. Horton is a home builder who broke ground on their first home in Fort Worth, Texas in 1978. D.R. Horton is America’s #1 home builder, but that’s not why we at Haven have chosen to collaborate with them. D.R. Horton’s guiding principle is “a value-first dedication to the individual needs of each and every one of our nations homebuyers.” They are dedicated to ensuring that your home buying process is smooth and exciting – as it should be! They are also dedicated to building affordable homes.

With low inventory such as it is, we have attracted America's Largest Homebuilder to our town. We are introducing: D.R. Horton. Yes, I know they didn't roll into town yesterday, but this last week, I had the opportunity to get to know the company better and want to share with you some of what excites me about D. R. Horton.
Since 1978, D.R. Horton has consistently del ...

Are you moving to another state, or relocating to Washington State? More specifically, are you considering a move to or from the Spokane area? There are a lot dynamic factors changing in different directions simultaneously at this time. Let’s look at the big (national) picture first.
National Real Estate Market
If your plan for 2019 includes selling your home, you will want to pay attention to where experts believe home values are headed. According to the latest Home Price Index from CoreLogic, home prices increased by 4.7% over the course of 2018.
The map below shows the results of the latest index by state.
Real estate is local. Each state appreciates at different levels. The majority of the country saw at least a 2.0% gain in home values, while some residents in North Dakota and Louisiana may have felt prices slow slightly.
This effect will be short lived. In the same report, CoreLogic forecasts that every state in the Union will experience at least 2.0% a ...
