New Construction Homes
Thinking about purchasing a new construction home in Central Wisconsin?
There are many new construction communities near you that you may be interested in, but before you jump into visiting homes, it’s a good idea to sit down with a Realtor to discuss what you’re looking for in a new construction home. New home constructions sale representatives are great to work with, but it can be helpful having a real estate agent who is solely representing you and can negotiate and offer experiential advice to help guide you throughout your purchase.
A real estate agent who is familiar with the local market and area builders may be able to offer additional insight based on your needs and wants based on their experience with builders.
There are two common new construction options buyer wills consider. The first is selecting or building a new home in a subdivision built by one primary builder. The second is purchasing a parcel of land and having a custom home builder built your custom dream home.
The first step I’d recommend is talking with your lender on your plans for new construction and talking over the loan programs available. It’s important to start here before getting attached to a particular plan or dream home, as having the funding is the first step.
From here I recommend finding a great local real estate agent near you and a local real estate company that can support you throughout your search and purchase. I often like to sit down with my buyers and have a brief consultation to learn about them and their goals.
From here we can look at what’s on the market that’s new and move-in ready, and what is under construction, including the estimated completion dates. “Spec homes” are a speculative builds the builder creates based on common market trends. They often build a few different varieties to appeal to the majority of consumers. These homes are often slightly cheaper in cost because they don’t have many custom features.
If you find a spec home that you like, that could be the golden ticket for you! If you don’t, your Realtor can help you stay on top of local building schedules for the next one or you can talk through purchasing a lot and your own plan.
