THE RESALE VALUE
When building a new home, you certainly want it to be exactly what you want, but you also have to think of the resale value in case you ever decide to move.
The modern lifestyle is drastically different from what it was even 10 years ago and resale homes often lack the pizzazz and space to satisfy. Today’s new homes offer a bright, open kitchen with breakfast bar and high-end appliances because most of our living nowadays is in the kitchen. High-end master suites and extra living areas are now considered standards of the new modern home. New homes often feature these amenities as a part of their standard offering, and as time goes by, homes built decades ago are becoming less appealing to homebuyers.
New homes also save money with efficiency and green building techniques. They are built to meet energy code standards that assure homeowners of increased energy efficiency and lower household operating costs. In addition, most builders now incorporate various green construction methods/applications. These features cannot typically be found in older resale homes.
The choice to work without a Realtor in the new-home construction process is an individual decision. If you are the type of individual comfortable in selecting your area of town, floor plan, features and reviewing contract documents, then working directly with a builder may be your best option.
However, if you are not comfortable with any aspect of the process, consulting with a Realtor may be a good choice for you.
