You have probably seen the numbers: there’s a critical shortage of housing inventory.  This is the year that you can make a difference in the housing market, to fill that gap, with your construction program. Your customers, however, want a 1xClose construction program. They’ve heard about it from their realtors, their friends, etc., and they know they’ll save money and have less hassle…

There is a different set of reasons that your institution should be offering a 1xClose program. Do you know what they are?

In this episode of Rick’s Picks:

And more, all in just over 5 minutes!
