Adam Cornett w David Weekley Homes

Atlanta Division President Adam Cornett with David Weekley Homes joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to discuss what buyers are looking for in the present market. Cornett joins host Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate segment and chats about current communities in closeout and what’s in store for the new year.

Cornett started his journey with David Weekley Homes in 2014 within the Dallas division and, in 2016, became the division president. In late 2020, Cornett transferred to the Atlanta division and has loved living in Georgia with his wife and three beautiful daughters.

As the nation’s largest privately held builder, David Weekley Homes was established in 1976 and has grown drastically. From Portland to Texas to Florida, the building company grew exponentially across 19 markets and offers various products. As a prominent private home builder, the company puts its team members and customers first regarding daily operations.

One of the unique elements of David Weekley Homes is its ownership structure. The builder prioritizes equality, splitting ownership three ways between the founding families, the company’s team members and the Dovetail Impact Foundation.

With many prospective buyers wanting a sense of predictability, having a proper time frame and accurate payment forecasting is vital in today’s market. With supply chain disruptions, rising interest rates, increased prices and other factors impacting costs, some homebuyers are waiting longer than expected, and paying significantly more than they planned.

Cornett said, “One of the biggest things that buyers are looking for is a true time frame.”

After a great year of strong sales for the home building company, there are still some final opportunities to live in one of its beautiful neighborhoods. Priced in the high $600,000s, Hargrove in Decatur features a mixture of townhomes and high-density products with only one available home left. Starting in the low $500,000s, Woodbury in Smyrna has three Tomkins plan opportunities only one mile from The Battery. With two final Anglewood planopportunities available, Heritage at Towne Lake is a popular active adult community in Woodstock.

Cornett said, “The Anglewood is an award-winning plan of ours, winning an Obie award for Best Floorplan in an Age-Qualified Neighborhood!”
