- More new homes were completed and are ready to sell. This gives you more move-in-ready options for your search.
- Builders broke ground and started construction on more single-family homes. This means there are more homes intended for one household in the beginning stages of construction, allowing you the opportunity to customize one to your liking.
- The number of permits for building new single-family homes ticked up. This shows builders are ramping up to start on even more home construction soon.
CustomizationWhen you buy a new home under construction, you can tailor it to your unique needs and taste. Bankrate says:
“Building means customizing. . . . instead of wishing your home had a certain kind of flooring, a sunroom or some other special amenity, you’ll be able to tailor the property to your exact needs.”
Brand New EverythingAnother perk of a new home is that nothing in the house is used. It’s all brand new and uniquely yours from day one.
Minimal RepairsAnd, because everything is new, you’ll likely find there are fewer maintenance and repair needs up front. As Realtor.com explains:
“. . . if something does go wrong with your new home, not only are there likely some manufacturer warranties in place, but many builders also include additional home warranties . . .”
