Roger Martin, President of Roger Martin Properties, was featured in the Village News and Southwest News’ recent Home Improvements special edition in the Looking at the Market: Remodeling Permits & Home Sales.  He was quoted, “I think the new construction market in West University is strong.”

“MLS shows there are 78 single family homes as active, 27 of those are new construction of various stages. Some have not broken ground, some have just finished completion. That figure does not reflect homes going up as custom and are not for sale.  I think all together there are about 60 homes in various stages. My gut reaction is we are about where we were last year at this time.  We do still get calls from builders looking for lots and individuals wanting lots.”

Martin cautions, “Always be careful of statistics. One reason for slower reported sales is lack of inventory. If it’s not available, it is not being sold.”
