When buying a home, the thought of building one from scratch isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind. But when that thought does pop into a buyer’s head, the first question usually is: What are the benefits of buying new construction?
If you’ve found yourself at this point in your buyer’s journey, maybe it’s time you discovered everything there is to know about building your own home.
Custom home designs allow buyers a unique opportunity to combine everything they want from both location and design. They also avoid a lot of stress in knowing everything is brand new and won’t need to be fixed for some time. What’s there not to like?
While all those conveniences sound fantastic, getting there is way less spectacular, and much more complex. The process involves many moving parts: building codes, zoning restrictions, construction loans—more jargon than your typical home buying experience. This seminar will walk you through every step, from start to finish, covering such subjects as…
