In order to have an agent represent you in the purchase of a new home, make sure you and your agent are present the first time you visit that particular community or builder.
Should you purchase a new home, or a resale home? Here are some pro’s of each choice:
-Modern floor plans that could include an open floor plan, a “great room,” more closet space, more bedrooms and bathrooms, large garage, etc.
-The opportunity to select you desired lot within the community based on location within the neighborhood, shape, size, view, etc.
-The opportunity to choose upgrades, such as paint selection, customize floor coverings, cabinetry, colors, and more
-More energy-efficient insulation, dual pane windows, solar power, and heating/cooling systems
-Builder incentives, such as assistance with closing costs for using a preferred lender, credits for upgrades, etc.
-The added protection of a warranty from the home builder for plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and structural defects
-Existing features, including window treatments and mature landscaping, swimming pools, etc.
-Location — existing homes are often closer to metropolitan areas and have larger lots
-Established neighborhoods that provide a sense of community
-The opportunity to use an existing home as a base to remodel and create a unique property
-The ability to purchase a home protection plan
