New Home Construction

There are a ton of builders currently building! Which one should you go with? The decision can be tough, especially if you have never gone through the process. That’s where I come in to help!
 
I work with a wide variety of top new home builders. If you have some time before you need a home this may be a GREAT option for you!
 
Please make sure to contact me FIRST, (call/text 772-528-5851) before contacting a builder to help guide you as to which would suit you best.
 
Here are some reasons why and some answers to common questions you may have:
  • Do I have to pay Mark to help me? THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR MY SERVICES TO YOU! The builder pays my commission if I successfully help you find and close on the house of your dreams.
  • Why should I use a Realtor with a new construction purchase? Simply put, the builder already has representation when you walk in the door, you do not. Every buyer has their own level of knowledge about home construction – wouldn’t it be nice to walk in the door with a professional that handles new construction on a regular basis and knows what questions to ask on your behalf based on your goals? I can not be your representative if you do not take me on your first visit to a builder. So make sure to contact me FIRST!

  • Can I build on my own lot? Can I build on theirs? Do I want to live in an HOA or non-HOA community? Every builder is different, according to price point and features that are important to you. Don’t waste time doing the research, let me help guide you.
Here’s some tips before you reach out to a builder or community: Before you give your info to any builder online or in person, contact me first. I need to be present for the first meeting or your initial sign-in in order for me to be able to assist you through the process. If you happen to visit a builder on your way to the grocery store, please make sure you let them know that I am your Realtor and working with you (give them my card if you have one), otherwise I may not be able to assist you in the process as well.
 
I will make sure your experience goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible during the whole process, especially if you are selling your home or in a rental while the new home is built. Don’t be stuck without representation, give me a call!
 
 
Benefits of new construction:
  • Floor plan: If you opt for a custom-built home, you’ll work with the contractor to create a traditional or modern layout that works for your life. If you’ve always dreamed of a formal dining room for family gatherings, it’s yours. If you’re buying pre-built new construction, chances are good the layout will lean to modern, with wide-open floor plans. Kitchens flow into family rooms so you can cook and oversee homework or watch the game. Rooms in new construction homes – especially bedrooms and bathrooms – tend to be larger and brighter, with lots of natural light.
  • Personalization: Even if you’re not opting for a custom home, you may be able to upgrade finishes from builder-grade materials if you connect with the builder before construction is completed. It may cost you a bit more, but adding your own personal touches may be worth it to you.
  • Efficiency: New appliances and home systems are more energy efficient. Plus more efficient insulation and windows create buttoned up homes that are less expensive to heat and cool than older models. All of that translates into lower utility bills.

  • Smart and healthy: “Smart” technology options allow you to automate internet, cable, speakers and even an alarm system. And new homes often use low- and zero-VOC (volatile organic compound) paints and building materials, improving indoor air quality.

  • Maintenance: A newly built home requires less maintenance since everything from appliances to the HVAC system and roof are brand new. This means you can better predict monthly homeownership costs, since you’ll likely spend less to maintain your home. Warranties can protect your new home for years before you need to undertake any major repairs.

  • Amenities: Buying new construction often means buying a lifestyle. Master or planned communities often include amenities like parks and community spaces that are close to schools and transit. The key is finding a builder who offers what you care about.

  • Timing: The median time to complete new construction – five months for single-family homes and six months for condos – lets you feel less rushed than scrambling with other buyers for an existing home.

  • New home warranty (no maintenance) on appliances, structure, and roof.
  • Quite possibly the same cost OR cheaper to build a new home instead of buying used – some starting in the $170’s!
  • Great incentives by buying new
  • No headaches of wondering if a new leak will spring from the roof or the AC unit will go down, it’s all NEW.
  • Great prices on insurance
  • Green construction
Drawbacks of a new home:
  • Usually a 6-8 month build time, some builders I have can be quicker, more custom builders can be longer. So it just takes some planning. You may be able to strike it perfectly and be able to find a move-in ready home already completed or completing in the next 1-3 months. Give me a call to see what's available for you and we'll go through the options!
