Buy or Build? Is New Construction Right for You?

Want to buy a home but can’t find anything you love? Inventory is really low, so we get it. Ever thought of building? It can be a very daunting unless you have someone to walk you through step-by-step and tell you what to watch out for. We can help you do exactly that! 


While the thought of building can be overwhelming to some people, it can also be really exciting. You get to make this house your home, exactly as you’ve been envisioning. But how do you get there? Here’s how we can help:

  • We identify the area you want to be in.
  • We explore the builders and see which floor plans fit your needs and budget.
  • We sit down with the builder representative and price out your home.
  • We write the contract and communicate with a lender (you often get a credit or discount for using the builder’s preferred lender.)
  • We make your home selections, sometimes everything from flooring to cabinets to lighting to trim to plumbing fixtures and don’t forget about the exterior options like foundation and siding material, colors, roof. That’s where it can be a little more daunting. But don’t worry… we are there to guide you each step of the way.
  • We sell your current home (if you have one to sell).
  • We have your new home orientation and final walk-through.
  • Finally, we close on your new home!!


Ok…there might be a little more to it than that, but that’s basically how it goes. If you want to explore building a home to see if it’s the right move for you, give us a call today!
