Buying new home construction from builders!

There are a few things to consider when purchasing a new home. The first and most important question you must ask yourself is: Should I go with a pre-owned home or a new construction home?

Why Should I buy a New Construction Home vs Pre-owned?

There are advantages and disadvantages to both depending on how you look at it. Pre-owned homes are usually “move-in-ready” despite small changes like paint and carpeting. This may be the way to go for someone who needs to move in fast and does not want to be burdened with the intricate design elements.

If you are looking for a home, however, that perfectly fits the needs and lifestyles of you and your family, new construction may be the way to go. In a new construction design process, you essentially become the architect and designer, with the help of a professional building company by your side every step of the way.

In a new construction building project, you and your family get to choose every element of your home, from the floors, cabinets and paint colors, to the floor plan and types of heating and cooling units are installed.

If you buy pre-owed and are planning to do a lot of interior and exterior renovations, you may be saving yourself money in the long run with a new build. Remodels of even the smallest sort, such as installing a new floor, are costly. Larger renovations, like floor plan changes or total room remodels require time, money and a carefully planned budget. If you decide to go with a new construction home, you will save a lot of the additional costs by getting the aesthetics and layout that you want right off the bat.

I chose new construction! Where do I go from here?

When choosing your next neighborhood, consider the following points.

Once you make the decision to buy a new construction home, you will want to start considering the geographical location and what type of property you want to live on? Do you want a smaller property in order to cut down on landscaping costs or do you want more outdoor space? Do you want to live close to major shopping centers and freeways, or do you prefer being off the beaten path? Once you narrow down your choices, you can start researching builders and agents.
