Do you want to buy a brand new home? Many people love the appeal of purchasing a new home, and there is something special about being the first owners of a property. When you are in the market to buy a home in Atlanta or any of the surrounding areas, it is essential that you work closely with an experienced real estate agent to learn more about the many options that are available. Your agent will be able to help you to decide if a new home purchase is right for you, or if it makes more sense to buy a pre-existing home.
These are a few things that you need to consider if you are interested in buying a new home for your family:
Waiting for Completion
When you are ready to move, it can be frustrating to hear that you need to wait for a few months before your new home will be ready because the construction needs to be completed. On the other hand, an existing home is ready for move-in right away. So, you need to consider your schedule to decide if you have the time to wait for the construction, or if it would be better for you to move immediately into a home that is already built.
There are some options to buy a new home without waiting. For example, you might purchase a new home that is already built and owned by the builder.
All Types of Customization
When you are working with a builder, you can choose certain features that can be customized on the property. As the buyer, you can pick the details for the finishing touches, colors, appliances, and additional accommodations that you are interested in. With new construction, the possibilities are unlimited! In comparison, it might take a little more work to remodel an existing home to match what you desire.
Home Warranty Options
Most builders offer warranties to cover specific areas of the home, such as the plumbing, windows, and/or the roof. These warranties will still be in place when you move into a new home. But, the warranties are often expired on older homes. The warranty is important, because it helps to cover the costs of anything that might need repair within a specific time frame.
Even if you are moving into an older home, there are certain types of short-term warranties that can be purchased to keep you protected. So, the best thing that you can do is talk with your real estate agent for more information about the options that are available.
