New Construction

Are you stymied by the low inventories in your market?

MRED and NewHomeSource Professional have collaborated to bring MRED brokers a great new way to service customers interested in new construction homes.

  • Next week, we will be adding a link in connectMLSTM to the NewHomeSource website
  • NewHomeSource is an adjunct to the MLS; builders are not adding properties to the MLS and do not have MLS access
  • NewHomeSource is a way for builders who agree to compensate Realtors® to inform you of new homes for sale
  • Register yourself and your buyers to insure you are compensated for your efforts in bringing in a buyer
