They don’t build them like this anymore….

And you should be glad!  No, this is not a photo essay on any specific construction technique or whatever.  After all, I am just a real estate agent, not an engineer.

While on my walk this morning I bumped into a guy that lives down the street.  He was picking up fliers from one of the half dozen houses for sale on our street.  Looking at the price, he made some comment about the low prices.

Being an on-the-ball  real estate agent I threw out a couple of suggestions where, for the same money, a 5 year old house could be purchased for the seam money (like Phillips Landing subdivision in Rockledge Florida).

His response, much like most owners of older homes, was “yeah, but they don’t build them like this anymore!”

That may be true….like the new hurricane standards; the new 140 mph windows, greater energy efficiencies, etc.

The reality is the Brevard County Florida real estate market is a buyers market with sellers of older houses and condos having to  compete with newer construction – on price and qualities!
