Buying a New Home

When people are looking at new homes, there are a lot of important factors to consider.  They need to research and check out the schools in the area if they have school age children, the shopping facilities in the area, and the safety aspect of the neighborhood in which they are considering buying a home.

Another important aspect to consider is the company who is building the home.  Are they a reputable company?  How many years have they been building homes and what is the quality of the homes they build?  Some companies have been in business for over thirty or forty years and have established long-term reputations as quality builders. Companies like Standard Pacific, for example, have built homes for over 110,000 families during the past forty-plus years which illustrates their commitment to building homes.   Companies such as this demonstrate the quality of their homes by continued sales throughout the years. As you can see, people should do their research and make sure the company is reliable and one with a proven track record of quality and service.

When people make a decision to buy a new home, other aspects to consider are: will the home be ready for move-in, or will it be partially built which allows the buyer to choose colors, lighting, flooring, countertops, cabinetry, and other features. Or will they start with the floor plan and be involved in choosing the majority of the features in their new home, letting their own personal style be reflected in their home whether it’s traditional or contemporary?

With all these factors to consider, people should take time, do their research, and plan for their new home. With a quality builder, they can have a home that will bring them many years of enjoyment and satisfaction.

  1. I think you’re definitely right about doing your research. Building a home is not something I have heard talked about as much recently with the drop in the housing market and it becoming such a buyers market.

  2. Hi Dan–
    My husband and I had not originally considered building a home at first either when we began our home search, but now we aren’t so sure seeing as we could choose our own floor tiles, backsplashes, amenities, etc. It is tempting!
