Buying A Home

Buying a New Construction Home

The new construction home market is expected to pick up significantly this year, so here is what we suggest when buying a new construction home!

  1. Weigh the pros and cons. It's easy to get caught up in the new and shiny, but we suggest really thinking on whether these homes actually fit your lifestyle.
  2. Find a great agent. You're going to want someone who has some new construction home buying experience! 
  3. Get negotiating! Consider asking for the builder to pay closing costs or perform upgrades at no additional charge.
  4. Get an Inspection and Home Warranty. Make your sales contract contingent on a final home inspection by a professional you hire. Never assume that because a home is newly constructed, it isn't going to have defects.
  5. Get everything in writing! Don’t sign anything until everything has been negotiated, agreed upon and written into the contract.

Happy home hunting! We're always here for your real estate needs!
