Once you learn the market, the builders, products and locations, the chore becomes much easier, particularly if you are assisted by a knowledgeable, unbiased consumer oriented new home professional. In sum, not all real estate people are created equal, anymore than are doctors, lawyers, dentists, electricians or any other employment discipline. We know new homes and homebuilders well. We are proud of our market niche and the 20 years we spent learning it. Your association can save you a lot of time and aggravation ultimately saving you thousands.
Commonly, new home shoppers make an assumption that price should be the focal parameter of their investment. This is a myth. In fact, locating and negotiating value is the benchmark of savvy property investment analysis. Consider not only the initial investment and the daily costs of ownership, focus intently on appreciation potential and quality of life. These variables are intertwined with supply and demand, location, cost per square foot, standard features, options, floor plans, lots, community, construction materials and financing alternatives. Do not underestimate the most important aspect of your investment ... your home is the place that defines and creates your lifestyle.
