Are You Creating New Homebuyers? Part 2

Title Insurance with Old Republic Title and escrow of Hawaii


In my last posting I presented my opinion that not enough agents are siezing on the crucial first time buyer market.  Not only does this market present a real land of opportunity in our current market, but it is these very people that will fuel the future upper end of the market.  The agent that changes the lives of renters will reap the future dividends.

Below are a couple tools that can help you to show present renters the real cost of renting in the long term without the benefit of tax advantages and asset appreciation, as well as helping them to understand how much home they can really afford. 

Be sure to contact your local Old Republic sales representative for your marketing needs, and support them with your business!

With a decline in pricing these are viable buyers as they have nothing that they have to sell to get into a new transaction

William, You are right this is a great niche to go after. In a normal year first time buyers make up about 40% of buyers. We need them now to jumpstart the market so everyone else can move up.
