If you've been eyeing a particular location and neighborhood that seems PERFECT for your family, but the homes are still under construction, don't worry! With a few smart questions to ask before buying new construction, you can turn that hesitation into a confident "Heck ya!" 

Here are a few key things to ask:

Is the price of the lot included in the overall cost? If so, find out which lots come with the highest price tag so you can make an informed choice that fits your budget. If the lot price is not included, make sure to factor that into your overall cost calculations.🧐

Does the home come with a warranty? It's important to know what is covered and how long the coverage lasts. A reputable builder should stand behind their work and provide a warranty for at least the first few years.🏡

How long will construction take? While there are always potential delays, you should be able to get a general idea of the timeline. The average construction time in the U.S. is typically around seven to eight months.⏰

What finishes and appliances are included in the base price, and what upgrades are available? This is a crucial question to ask to avoid any unexpected costs down the road. Take detailed notes and, if possible, tour a model home to see what's included as standard and what upgrades are available.

Is landscaping included? Some builders include landscaping in their package, while others leave it entirely up to the buyer. Since landscaping can be a significant expense, it's important to know what to expect and budget accordingly.💐
No matter whether you're buying an existing home or new construction, having a trusted realtor on your team can make all the difference. If you or someone you know is thinking of buying, I would love to help. Let's chat!
