3 Areas of Focus to Assess Before Building a Triangle Home

Posted on May 17, 2017 by imusocialmedia

Buyers in the Triangle market are eager to make a new home purchase so they can settle down and enjoy everything the local communities have to offer! But some buyers may not be finding the ‘perfect’ fit in the homes listed in the Apex, Holly Springs, and Fuquay Varina areas. Luckily, buyers have many options when it comes to purchasing a new home, and they can choose to work with builders to construct the home of their dreams.

Choosing to construct a new home affords buyers many options when it comes to design, but it also presents a few challenges. What exactly should buyers consider when they’ve made the choice to build a new home?

Flat Fee Realty recommends doing due diligence and serious homework to make sure building is the best way to go:  

  • Choose the Right Community. Buyers can always choose upgrades and redesign the plans as their new home is being built, but they can’t change the location. Take the time to do thorough research on the communities and neighborhoods so that there are no surprises once ground is broken. Also, make sure the available lots don’t have hidden faults like poor drainage or awkward underground piping that could hinder future development.
  • Research Builders. Like Flat Fee Realty, local builders are also licensed by the state and have open records concerning complaints and legal action against them. Almost every builder is reputable and does exceptional work. Yet, at times, there are those who aren’t 100% client-focused. Always check reviews and make sure the builder shares both needs and wants.
  • Have the Home Inspected. Just because the home is brand new doesn’t mean it’s perfect. Before closing, have the home inspected to make sure any potential problems are addressed before the builder’s warranty expires. This will prevent future problems and dissatisfaction down the line.

Buying an existing home with the help and support of Flat Fee Realty is an important consideration for new home buyers as well. Choosing to work with Flat Fee Realty agents can save buyers time and money, not to mention the quality care and service we specialize in providing each and every transaction. Please call us about potential neighborhoods and communities in the Triangle area.
