What Should You Avoid When Purchasing A New Construction Home?

Are you thinking about building a new home from scratch? If so, take note of these three things you need to avoid! We have a lot of experience in new construction properties and would love to make the process as smooth as possible for you.

  1. Hire a Realtor. An experienced Realtor knows what to look for when buying any type of property. Sure, the new construction builder has a Realtor on site, but that agent is only there to advocate for the seller. For guidance and representation, you need to hire a Realtor who will advocate for you! If any issues arise, you’ll have someone there to help you understand what your options are.
  2. Do your research. This comes back to hiring a real estate professional, as they will know exactly what to look for. For example, an agent will look at property taxes for you, one of the most important things to keep in mind while building a new home. You need to know exactly how much you are going to be paying in property taxes in order to avoid overextending yourself financially.
  3. Find a trustworthy lender. We will make sure you know exactly what rates and fees you’ll be dealing with ahead of time so that you can select the program that will best fit your financial needs.

If you decide to hire a Realtor, make sure you are comfortable with them. You should be able to call, text, or email them at any time in order to stay on the same page and ensure you’re both working toward the same goal. If you have any questions about finding the right agent or avoiding common new construction mistakes, we would love to hear from you!
