How New Construction Homes Are Different

Purchasing a new construction home is a different process than moving into a retail home. However, in either case the same is true: A home is usually the most expensive investment you make in your life. You want to make sure that you are making a quality investment that will increase in value over time. When it comes to new construction, specifically, there are a lot of small decisions to make that really add up. The first major decision, though, is choosing a builder. Professionals like myself have the knowledge, experience, and connections to help guide you. For this reason, it’s important that use the help of a professional.

Determining Your Home Affordability

Something my team and I often hear from clients is that they are unsure of how much they can afford while looking for a home. This is a common question people have and one that takes a number of factors to determine, including things like your income, employment history, and more. Finding out what that means for you specifically is best done with the help of professionals. Working with a real estate team as well as a mortgage lender will be the key to success in determining your home affordability. To learn how we can help you discover what you can afford, watch this short video.
