Tips on Buying a New Construction Home
Whether to buy an existing home (also known as a 'resale' home) or have a new home built is a decision many buyers face today. If you opt for new construction, a REALTOR® can be a powerful advocate in your corner to negotiate upgrades, a move-in date, and other terms with the home builder.
Below are helpful tips to prepare you for a new home construction purchase.
Selecting a Builder:
The Builder's Sales Representative and Your REALTOR®:
A REALTOR® who is knowledgeable in new-home construction will be able to help you decipher the data and point out the downsides and upsides of each line item. Your agent also can look out for your interests in reviewing the builder's contract, which often contains more legal jargon than consumer-friendly language. It’s important that you have an advocate in your corner when buying a new construction home.
