What It's About:

The traditional approach of home buying has many inherent flaws. To start, buyers are forced to drive dozens of communities, across multiple builders, and are left trying to decipher piles of non-standardized collateral. What’s more, the prized model home experience is almost never going to be quite like the final product due to plan selection and customization. Finally, the experience isn’t helped by a new generation of buyers who are even more introverted and apprehensive of salespeople.

As suppliers of new homes, are we doing what’s most convenient for us rather than innovate? In an era where new technology can pulverize an entire industry within a few years, it’s a dangerous strategy. Our industry is ripe for innovation. Will you be a leader of it?

Is there a better way? As the founder of the largest private seller of new homes in the United States, David will share with you strategies for transitioning to the future of new home sales.
