Buying New Construction

Be In The Know About Buying A New Construction Home

Whether you're buying a new spec home, a semi-custom new home in a housing development, or designing and building a custom home, there are some things you need to know about buying a newly-constructed home in order to avoid mishaps and disappointments.

To begin with, remember that preparation is key; you need to determine your budget and secure financing before you even begin house hunting. Get pre-approved by a bank or mortgage lender and decide how much money you want to invest in a new home. When deciding on a budget, be sure to not overlook the extra costs like property taxes, insurance, furniture, window treatments, landscaping, and maintenance. With a new home, there are often more costs after you purchase than when you buy an existing home that may have mature landscaping, window coverings, and other items in the home that you will need.

If you're considering buying a newly-constructed home, this post is filled with great advice that can help guide you through the process!

Are you a potential home buyer in the Mid-Hudson Valley who just can't find the right home?  Well you're not alone.  There are lots of frustrated buyers out there who have already looked at everything in their price range but just haven't found the home that makes them want to pull the trigger.

There is some good news this Spring and Summer.  Builder confidence is up.  This means more builders (and their banks) are investing in new subdivisions.  This has created many more opportunities for buyers.

In Dutchess County alone there are hundreds of opportunities to either purchase a newly-constructed home that is 'nearly' completed, get on the ground floor of a home that has just been started, commit to build with the builder in a new subdivision, or purchase raw land and hire your own builder.
