Presenter: Kevin Oakley

When: Thurs, January 23 from 10:15-11:15 AM

Where: LVCC – South 221

The concept “Presale Without Fail” was developed during the great recession – a time when the lack of urgency caused many new communities to fail completely and large discounts were the norm. Since then, it has been used by over 100 home builders to help them maximize the results of a community launch. This advanced session will help dismiss the mystery, fear and unwelcome surprises from your next new community launch. Confidently make decisions needed at each step to sell multiple homes from day one. From putting the “New Community Coming Soon” sign in the ground to developing a lead list to signing your first contract, leave with a proven outline for success. Learn more.
