There is definitely an ever increasing interest and demand forBACKYARD HOMES and it doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. In fact statistics show that even in light of all the COVID concerns, permits for them are doubling and tripling throughout the State and spreading like a wind fanned fire throughout most of the Country. With the lack of adequate land availability, let alone the high premiums developers have to pay for the dirt, coupled with stifling if not prohibitive developmental and envrionmental impact fees, out of control and over inflated material costs, the overwhelming shortage of qualified and experienced labor along with our younger generation...

CREST 'BACKYARD' HOMES Welcomes Lenska Bracknell To Our Growing Team!As the ole saying goes "All Good Things Take Time". I've known Lenska, also an Active Rain member,  since the '08 real estate meltdown and recession.
