On Thursday October 22, 2015 Arthur Rutenberg Homes by Bluefield Builders hosted a seminar for area Realtors: What Realtors Must Know About Custom Home Building. Our Sales Consultant, Kim Blanton taught this informative class to over 20 area Realtors. Topics covered were:

  • The Realtor’s Role and Responsibility in the Process
  • Due Diligence in evaluating home sites
  • The Design-Build Process and working with Architects
  • Understanding and comparing Specifications and Pricing
  • The Stages of Custom Home Construction
  • New Trends in Custom Home Design
  • Local Market Statistics for Land and New Homes

Finding and evaluating home sites suitable for custom homes was a popular topic. Several Realtors in attendance expressed that many of their buyers were dissatisfied with the current inventory of resale homes. A large percentage of luxury homes were built 10 – 15 years ago and don’t reflect today’s design trends.  There was a lot of discussion around finding and evaluating suitable home sites for custom homes.  Kim was able to explain how Arthur Rutenberg Homes makes the whole process easier to understand and manage with our proven process and systems. All of our customers who build with us receive award winning design services for both architectural design and interior design through our Charlotte Design Studio.

We ended the day with many new Realtor friends and in doing so, have provided the Charlotte and Lake Norman Realtor community with a valuable resource for them to utilize.
