New Construction & Inventory Homes
As a team who specializes in an area with a lot of new construction, buyers ask all the time if they can use a real estate agent when they are purchasing new construction. The answer is YES, and Carrie Courtney & Company is equipped to guide you through the building process.
Because purchasing new construction is typically more complicated and intimidating than buying a resale home, it’s important that you work with someone who can represent you during the process. In general, builders’ model homes are staffed by agents who work directly for and represent the builder, making the process very builder-friendly with a lot of hidden costs along the way. A Realtor from Carrie Courtney & Company can help you save money and avoid unexpected surprises.
Why A New Home Is A Better Home.
The biggest benefit of a new home is clear: it’s new and built to your specifications – the floor plan, the exterior architecture, the colors, finishes, flooring, and everything that makes a house a true home for you and your family.
But that’s not the only benefit, consider the following:
Today’s Design and Features. The way we live has changed dramatically over the past decade. And new homes reflect those changes – high ceilings, open spaces for entertaining, gourmet kitchens with all the latest appliances and appointments, incredible home entertainment systems, spa-like bathrooms, expansive closets and so much more.
Advanced Technology. If your home isn’t new, you will be paying someone to install the latest technology, whether it’s updated wiring for internet and cable, or home security. Flat-screen TVs. Surround sound. All the latest is easy to include in your new home.
Energy Efficiency. With today’s improved building materials and construction techniques, your new home will actually help pay for itself with lower utility bills and improved comfort.
Better Air Quality. Higher standards for nearly everything that goes into a home have greatly improved the air quality in today’s homes. A benefit your kids will appreciate years from now (although they may not tell you).
Low Maintenance. This may be the biggest benefit – a shorter “honey-do” list on the weekends. When you buy a used home you’re buying all the problems that come with that home. A new home has the latest products and systems that are designed and engineered to work together for many years to come. And a warranty you can count on.
A new home versus a used home? The facts point in one direction: for peace-of-mind, for comfort, for the way you live today – buy a new home and live the good life.
