To help you get you started on your new home search, check out these six steps on buying and building a house.
Step 1: It’s important that you first decide if a new home is right for you. Investigating what makes new homes a good option versus an existing home.
Step 2: Shopping for a New Home - there are lots of things to learn about when it comes to buying a new house and that there are lots of questions that needs answering from finding the right neighborhood, what to look for when choosing a builder and getting the most from your builder’s sales pros.
Step 3: Buying and Financing - Before you go out and fall in love with a home that’s out of your budget, it’s important to get your finances in order. Once you understand where you stand financially, it’s time to figure out how to finance your new home. This is the step where you’ll learn about down payments, how much home you can afford, your builder’s closing process and more.
Step 4: House Style - This is truly the fun part. Who doesn’t want a home that fits their lifestyle to the T? If you choose a production builder, you’ll pick from a collection of floor plans and then you’ll be able to personalize it through options and upgrades. You’ll visit your builder’s design center where you’ll choose faucets and fixtures, cabinets, flooring, lighting and much more. If you are building a custom home, you’ll work with your builder to create a floor plan. The best part is that both choices offer the ability to individualize your home for your family and lifestyle.
Step 5: Building Process - This is when the magic happens. Depending on the type of home you’re building, it can take anywhere from six to 10 months to complete your home. The complexity of your floor plan will also factor into your timeline. We know that buying a home is often the biggest purchase you’ll make, so it’s important clear any misunderstandings and to help alleviate any stress by understanding your builder’s process, know who’s on your building team and learn what goes into a high-quality foundation.
Step 6: Settling In - Home, sweet, new home! Yes, you’ll have fun decorating and settling into your new home, but maintenance is important too — just as you would maintain a new car, you too should maintain your new home. Now that you have all of that out of the way, it’s time to enjoy your new home. Throw a housewarming party in that new kitchen or simply sit back and relax. Welcome home!
