You’re seeing a huge premium for new con-struction. If you look in Landfall, new construction is bringing anywhere from $200 to $250 a square foot. Whereas a comparable house that is just five to 10 years old might be sell-ing between $180 to $200 a foot. The buyer definitely wants to drive a shiny new car off the lot.” The demand for houses that needed nothing and new construc-tion properties has perhaps never been higher. “There is preponderance for new construction. Autumn Hall and Parkside have really strong sales numbers and that’s people who might buy $700,000 to $800,000 in Landfall or wherever, the beach, but they want new construction and they are paying a premium for it,” Young says. “This is my 30th year in the business. I have never seen the buyer demanding every-thing turnkey. They do not want anything that requires updating, even painting and removing wall paper, much less a kitchen renova-tion or removing walls to open the floorplan.”
