Letter From the Editor March 2012 Having lived in Raleigh for almost 30 years, this has been one of the mildest winters I can ever remember.

It has everything you could hope for and more. If you’re in the market for a new home please go by and see it, you’ll be glad you did! Whether you’re interested in a single family home or a town home, our magazine has lots of beautiful choices.

Why builders feature homes in For Sale by Builder Magazine…

Easily see our new issue each month when you like our Facebook page Things that make our publication unique… As a new homes publication, we are focused on getting results by providing buyers with the content they are looking for when they pick up our magazine. Our concept is based on many things but a fundamental difference between our publication and others is that we’re featuring specific homes. The reason we feature homes in our magazine is because when people shop for real estate, most people are looking for homes.

Affordability Content Format Distribution Print Cycle

Call (919) 460-4609 Affordability: Affordable ad rates and a low cost per copy provide a better opportunity to generate a positive return. It also allows advertisers to use bigger ads with more pictures and more details.

Cary and Surrounding Areas

Cameron Pond

Content: The content featured in our publication provides the new home industry with an opportunity to focus on a new competitive advantage; new homes are often times a better value than many existing homes. Format: Our organized format allows buyers to easily find the part of town and price home that their interested in. The bigger ads allow for an opportunity to focus on a feature home but also to easily highlight other home features, neighborhood features, a QR code, a logo or a location map.

Distribution: Our print distribution strategy (major grocery stores and RDU airport terminals) allows home shoppers to easily find a copy of our publication in an indoor environment where they are accustomed to finding information on new home neighborhoods. Print Cycle: Our monthly print cycle provides an opportunity for a more active marketing strategy. Monthly ads can complement a general brokerage email campaign focusing on a feature home or monthly promotion. General email campaigns focus on communicating a message to the general brokerage industry, our publication can complement that effort by providing an easy way to communicate that same message to the individuals shopping for homes in the Triangle.

We post an online copy of our magazine each month to our Facebook page, easily see our new issue each month by LIKING our Facebook page. We are also having a drawing in May for a free Ipad. It will be a drawing between the people who like our Facebook page. Visit our local website at www.forsalebybuildermagazine.com or call (919)233-7653!

Mungo asks, “How Smart is Your Home?”

Raleigh, NC - February 9, 2012 -

Mungo Homes is proud to announce “hauSmart” – the new standard in homebuilding. Developed exclusively by Mungo, hauSmart employs the most progressive ideas in new construction to ensure that each home is on the cutting edge of efficiency, affordability and convenience. One of the main components of hauSmart is that, at completion, each and every home is tested by Home Energy Group -- an independent third party -- to ensure quality and energy efficiency. Each home will receive a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) rating (much like a new car MPG rating) that will project annual energy savings. Advanced construction techniques are being employed so that Mungo homes are now more energy efficient than a new standard code-built home and even more energy efficient than Energy Star rated homes. HauSmart homes have features that are healthier not only for the homeowner but for the environment; and features that make staying organized easier and simply make life more comfortable. All new Mungo homes started after June 10, 2011 are considered hauSmart. About Mungo Homes: Mungo Homes is part of the Mungo family of companies that started building new homes in Columbia in 1954. With a track record of success based on quality, value and integrity, Mungo now builds new homes in seven markets in North and South Carolina, and enjoys financial security and stability that has escaped many home builders in today’s tenuous economic climate.

program, which helps MIRM candidates complete their required case studies to earn the designation. Each year, the IRM Board of Governors selects one of its MIRMs who has gone above and beyond to exemplify the designation.

Gaye Orr Named 2011 Master in Residential Marketing of the Year by NAHB

Raleigh, NC - February 20, 2012 – Gaye Burwell Orr has been named the 2011 Master in Residential Marketing (MIRM) of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and its Institute of Residential Marketing (IRM) in recognition of her efforts to promote education in new home sales and marketing. Orr is president and partner of Coldwell Banker Advantage New Homes in Raleigh, N.C., and has been working with builders and developers in the area to successfully market their new homes and communities for more than 28 years. Orr is a past president of IRM, a past chair of NAHB’s National Sales and Marketing Council and currently is the vice chair for the NAHB Education Committee.

“Gaye has been a beacon for future MIRMs, helping them to achieve the highest honor in new home sales and marketing,” said Tom Vetter, MIRM, chairman of the IRM Board of Governors and a sales and marketing consultant based in Danville, Calif. “She also remains dedicated to the ideals of IRM as a leader and educator, helping to elevate our profession.” “Gaye is one of NAHB’s biggest proponents for education,” said Jim Sattler, chairman of the NAHB Education Committee and a builder from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “She is a true example of the value that professional designations bring and has made it her personal mission to show builders and other housing professionals how to be more successful marketing and selling homes.” Orr and other leading industry professionals will be recognized at NAHB’s Designation Achievement Reception at the 2012 International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla. For information about all NAHB educational designations, visit www.nahb.org/designations. ABOUT NAHB:

Locally, Orr has been heavily involved with the Home Builders of Raleigh and Wake County, previously chairing its Triangle Sales and Marketing Council. While chairing her local home builder association’s Education Committee, she established a real estate school with the North Carolina Real Estate Commission to approve several IRM courses for continuing education credit. She also spearheaded an initiative to offer more designation programs each year at her HBA.

The National Association of Home Builders is a Washington-based trade association representing more than 160,000 members involved in home building, remodeling, multifamily construction, property management, subcontracting, design, housing finance, building product manufacturing and other aspects of residential and light commercial construction. NAHB is affiliated with 800 state and local home builders associations around the country. NAHB’s builder members will construct about 80 percent of the new housing units projected for this year.

Orr has been a certified instructor for IRM courses and piloted the MIRM-Aid™
