How many new homes does a person buy in their lifetime? If you’re like most homeowners you can count them on one hand, and that doesn’t include the thumb! Being that a new home purchase may be a once in a lifetime decision, you can’t afford to make a mistake.
Here are three things every new homebuyer must consider before making a purchase:
1. Think Long Term.
How long will you be in this home? Five years? Twenty? Regardless the length of time you plan on living in your new home, you have to anticipate the upkeep and repairs every home requires as time marches on. Do you want build specifications and components that are designed to last?
2. Don’t Skimp On Quality.
Like everyone else, you’re concerned with the ‘bottom line’, after all a good deal is a good deal—except when it isn’t. A big mistake is to go with a builder that offers a cut-rate price. Have you ever wondered how they can build a new home at such a ridiculously low price? Sadly, they cut corners on things they simply shouldn’t, including items like insulation, siding, windows and doors. They claim they’re saving the buyer a few bucks, and that might be true initially, but wait until your utility bills start rolling in, not to mention costly maintenance charges down the road. “Doing it right the first time” actually saves you money, resulting in a more comfortable, durable home for decades to come.
3. Pride Of Ownership.
Purchasing a new home is much more than looking at the price tag. It’s not like you’re going to the supermarket and selecting the store brand tomato soup over Campbell’s because it’s thirty cents cheaper and tastes almost the same. Trust me, that last thing you want to experience is buyer’s remorse. It’s not like you can go back to the builder next week and just purchase another home. You deserve to experience the deep satisfaction of having a home you can be proud of for years to come. Get it wrong and, well…
