What to Know Before You Buy
Even if you're building a home, it's still important to work with a local agent who has experience with new construction sales. Here are a few details you should know before beginning the process!
Confirm your timeline
If you're not in a hurry to move, you may want to consider building a custom home from the ground up. However, if you're looking for a new place on a tight timeline, you may have to go with a spec house that's already (or almost) finished. Most homes take at least five to six months to complete, so be sure to ask your builder about what's possible within your desired timeframe.
Understand your financing
Most builders will encourage you to finance with their preferred lenders. Depending on your situation, this could help you save money and take advantage of special incentives. However, you should still shop around for the best rate and consider all of your options. Some lenders even offer loans specifically for new construction or land buyers.
Interview plenty of builders
Perhaps one of the most important parts of buying a new construction home is choosing the right builder. Your agent should have a few recommendations, but you should also reach out to builders directly to learn more about their properties. Be sure to ask about their standard features, visit model homes and communities, and look up plenty of reviews.
Need to Buy Land?
Some builders may be willing to construct a home on your own piece of land. Here in the Dallas area, you'll find plenty of available acreage on the market right now. But before committing to a property, you'll want to ensure the elevation is suitable for building a home and check for any deed restrictions that could hinder the construction process. When in doubt, just contact a local agent with plenty of land buying experience!
