(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kansas City, Missouri, March 4, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Despite the continued migration of people to smaller towns and rural regions of the nation, United Country Real Estate, the leader in lifestyle real estate, said today that they generated record sales and acquired over 60 new franchisees over the last year.
“This unusual demand for houses in the country is being driven by individuals seeking a more calm, small-town lifestyle, leisure, and second homes, among other things. Given the high and rising demand, we have seen an unprecedented number of lifestyle and rural real estate brokers and agents join our franchise to benefit from our one-of-a-kind program,” said Richard Thompson, vice-president of sales for United Country. Due to the high demand, listing inventory is at an all-time low, and realtors are seeking better programs to give customers to help distinguish their services from the competition. They are well aware that they must provide their customers with more promotion and marketing to get an edge in winning more listings. It is believed that the United Country marketing initiative will help to achieve this goal,” he said. Apart from witnessing record franchise growth, United Country has also had over a 30% increase in sales volume, acres sold, and website traffic since the year 2000. United Country’s President, Mike Duffy, said that various elements contribute to the company’s success.
“Over the past several years, there has been an increasing yearning for wide areas, a simpler lifestyle, and much lower home costs. In combination with historically low borrowing rates, robust consumer savings, the capacity to sell high-priced urban residences, and the expanding ability to work from home, these factors have resulted in considerable growth in our markets,” Duffy said.
Both Duffy and Thompson anticipate that the fundamentals driving demand will continue to be vital for 2022, even though the year has only just begun.
