New Home Building Considerations

When having a new home built for you, it is important to make sure it is done correctly.  A new home is like a new painting.  You only have one chance to get it done right, as it can only be built once.  With that being said, there are pro’s and con’s to having the home constructed for you.  It is an opportunity for you to get exactly what you want.  However, most of us are not expert home builders, and for many, this will be the first time they have had a home built for them.  Here are some considerations you should ask yourself if you plan on building a new home. 



New homes are built in new communities which has benefits and drawbacks.  The benefits are that you have control in some instances as to the land plot you buy in the area.  If there are multiple plots available, find the one that fits your needs the best.  Do you want trees, or be close to the local park or school etc…The drawbacks include a lack of community.  New neighborhoods usually lack neighbors which make the community hit or miss down the road in respect to the quality of people surrounding you.  It is important to remember that the community will develop over time.



When having the house built, all the features the home offers you can be modified to your needs.  This is a great pro as we all have are special needs, including larger doors, taller ceilings, quality kitchen surfaces, bigger closets, taller toilets, etc…It’s easy to get carried away, so it is important to decide what you really need so you don’t spend too much money on upgrades.  Also, the bank or mortgage company will only lend money for upgrades they think are necessary, and if they do not lend the money, you must find other means for getting the upgrades you are interested in.



The most important thing you can do when beginning a new home build, is to pick you builders wisely.  Learn about how they plan on building the home i.e. what will they build themselves, and what will they sub contract.  Make sure your voice is heard, and don’t get pressured into making any major decisions until you feel it is the right decision. Also, make sure that you have a deadline for the home completion, and if there are delays, have the builders compensate you for the delays.
