Planning Isn’t Everything… It’s the ONLY thing!

The purpose of the launch is to generate pre-sales, a process normally carried out before a home, and in some cases a neighborhood, is actually built. It requires lots of planning.

When will you be ready to launch? Follow this calendar for your time-sensitive tasks building up to the launch.
