I will be the first to admit that not all who build on speculation are interested in creating lasting quality. And there are, without a doubt, a few bad apples out there who make all of our jobs more difficult. But most real estate developers are not entitled to the “bad guy” monikers even if you don’t like what they’re building, for one simple reason: they are building what we want where we want it.

Most real estate speculators are developing land for exactly Luxury Home Builder Guys are asking for: bigger homes (even if it means sacrificing quality), more “features” (vaulted ceilings, round-top windows, solid-surfaced countertops), and more “curb appeal”, even if it means no appeal whatsoever on the other three sides of the house. Apparently, most people want wide streets, sidewalks, streetlights, and a landscaped grand entrance to the subdivision, and are apparently willing to trade off lot size for it.

When some people see that sign going up announcing a new housing development on the cornfield down the road they cry out that developers are tearing up farmland. It would be much more accurate to say that consumer demand is tearing up farmland. It is never a surprise to me when a hotly-debated rezoning request goes through, one that was vigorously opposed by many members of the community, that those new neighborhoods fill up rapidly.

When was the last time that you saw the lots in a new home development go completely unsold? You may have treasured the soybean field or the forest that had been there since you moved to the area but there are many others who don’t. If everyone held the opinion that houses shouldn’t go there, the land would remain undeveloped. And yet, in our community, they can’t turn farmland into subdivisions fast enough. I don’t like the quality of some of the new homes I see going up, but they are selling fast-often before they are finished.
