Building or Buying a New Home
|Often new homes are a good buy because they offer quick occupancy and good prices for buyers who will buy and settle quickly. Some things to keep in mind when looking for new homes:
Stability of the builder - How long has the builder been in business in your area of choice? Are there any claims for deficiencies in homes built by that particular builder?
Customer service is a very important aspect of purchasing a new home. It is usual for builders to stand behind their homes for the first year and offer several walk-through inspections after settlement.
