RI Real Estate Recovery- Home Building- Keep the Subcontractors Working

RI Real Estate Recovery- Home Building - Keep the Subcontractors Working.  One of the pleasures being aSouth Kingstown RI new home North Kingstown realtor and resident is the real estate recovery that comes from seeing the ultimate in new construction - the true custom designed and built home by local contractors.  And yes, they do employ many local subcontractors too. 
The residential building site I was on yesterday had a number of subcontractors putting together the bones of construct and the veins of detail in this incredible 6000 square foot Colonial home.  It is about home building, not beginning home building, that makes this home stand out from all others.
The detail the architect has put in here is just phenomenal and so in keeping with the surrounding South Kingstown area.  From the custom stonework with the herringbone pattern fireplaces to the LED lighting, it made me as a realtor realize how many subcontractors were working here and helping the South Kingstown real estate recovery inch up.
The finish work has hardly begun on this South Kingstown home, the crown moldings, coffered ceilings are yet to be.  But the cedar shingles and copper corners on the roof just sparkle in the sun as you drive up on this nine acre parcel with this custom home.  You can lose yourself in the dreams of others and capture parts of it on the way out the driveway.  Now we need to see more of this RI real estate recovery evident in new home building in all sizes and shapes.
The present home of these homeowners is in the field behind this home.  Unfortunately, the town is making it be dismantled, due to zoning laws, once this new home has its certificate of occupancy.
What is very evident to a woman 'of my age' is that all the subcontractors are in their 20's and 30's primarily.  These are the homeowners of now and the future and we as businesses, in all forms and types, need to make sure they continue to work so they may buy a home of their dreams.  They too are the bones of our RI real estate recovery.
Quality on the detail is evident in just the basement window wells which were being faced not only on the inside but also on the outside with stunning stone...just keeping those stone masons busy and very employed.  This is indicative of home building going on in South Kingstown and what local businesses have been waiting for.  My son runs a crew on this South Kingstown real estate recovery home and has been on the job since last year here...long term employment works for home building, home selling and keeping realtors like me in my sparkly red shoes. RI Real Estate Recovery- Home Building - Keep the Sub Contractors Working.

Lots of talented people out of work especially in the construction field. I know of a builder that keeps his crew building steadily all year long because they have families and this developer accepts the responsibility of keeping a crew together and of course making a living. It is understood that every one works for less when faced with the prospect something versus nothing, but at least people are staying employed. Yes, lets find a way to keep everyone going until the going gets going...good one Little Ginny

David, i always promote small businesses...the ground swell for recovery looks like it has to happen there too.  thanks

Barbara, thanks...real estate is a wonderful occupation when you treat it right!

Barbara -jo, hope yours is coming back too.

Scotti, many thanks...and please do one for your area too.

Andy, i do know that is hard competition...we have many Guatemalans here who are hired for landscaping at a low rate but others won't do the work...they do a great job.  I can tell you all the workers here are U.S. guys & gals paying their taxes!

Richie, thank you my friend...i too know of builders who are excellent that now add decks to keep their crews employed...i reach out to these builders because they have the sense of community we need to foster here!

That home in the picture definitely does not look like your run of the mill new construction house.  I do agree that the trickle down effect of the subcontractors being busy is something that displays not only the builders having business but all of the people who work under them.

Ginny, I wish New Construction in the 2.5 MM range was selling here, my husband would be busy! However, he bought another sub-division and he'll be building $500- $800 homes which have more of a market now. Hooray for him working, and then me getting 10 new listing within the next few years!

Ginny- Beautiful house!  And congrats on the feature.  Building has bounced back in our area, too.  There were a few years there when it wasn't so certain.

What a gorgeous, classic New England home! Is it on the water? What's the owners current home like? What a shame they can't subdivide the property and sell it.

Tammie, that is wonderful to hear..best..

Nina, not on the water but a mile from it ...set on many acres and a stone's throw from town...i think they love the private setting since they've owned the land for awhile...
