The main piece of advice anyone can give homeowners looking into new construction is to be sure everything from even the smallest changes is in writing. When you preview the model make sure you note all of the things that you like within the home. The model isn’t ever the base model; the model always includes upgrades that are not included in the base price of the home. Builders can customize the models available to meet your needs and wants. This is one of the great reasons to purchase a new construction home. It is however not without costs and additional time to complete the overall job.
A realtor is needed even when purchasing a new construction home. Strong realtors will guarantee to guarantee that you are covering the entire base. Realtors that specialize in new construction homes are familiar with working with builders and contractors. They understand the intricacies of negotiating add-ons and ensure that the buyer gets all changes in writing. A completion date on the initial contract becomes null and void when changes are continually made. It is impractical to add on customizations without adding time to the completion date. When the contract changes make sure that the contract gives you a new completion date.
A new home also needs a final home inspection as does a used home. Everyone makes mistakes. It is important to be sure that that a professional new home construction inspector does a final inspection on the home before you close on your new home. Inspectors find things that were not done or done incorrectly that could eventually cause bigger problems down the road for you as new home owners. An inspector is hired to do a final review over the work that has been completed. It is the largest single financial purchase you will make so be sure to have it inspected with a fine tooth comb before you sign on the dotted line making it officially yours.
Newly constructed homes often come with a new home warranty. Typically a third party will offer a home warranties for new home builders. Each builder will determine what they will cover in a warranty verse what they won’t. Negotiate a warranty in to your deal with the builder to ensure that your new construction home is covered in all ways possible.
New construction is a perfect way to ensure you are getting the home of your dreams down to the most minor details. Look to friends and family when considering a realtor and builder to assist in bringing the new construction home of your dreams into reality.
