Like the stock market, your new home search will have ups and downs. With the help of an experienced homebuilder, there are some key strategies you can incorporate to avoid the downs. Here’s a peek at the ups and downs common buyers experience on their new home search:
The Ups on the New Home Search Line Graph
A warranty that covers new homes should give buyers peace of mind. Your roof, HVAC system, and all construction materials will be in top condition. Many homeowners are hit with an unexpected hot water tank replacement or a plumbing issue at an inopportune time. You’ll have a good idea of the longevity of appliances and materials in your new home, get started on the right foot with preventative maintenance, and be able to budget and schedule tune ups.
Comfort and style will be waiting for you when you move into your new home. After all, you selected the floor plan, features, and upgrades to suite your lifestyle and your family. You’ll get started with fixtures you love rather than spending your weekend between the home improvement store and endless home projects.

Timing can be tricky. You may be selling an existing home or moving to a new community. It often helps if the completion of your new home fits in with the start of a new job, school year, or season. Most buyers want to have their families settled into a new school district at the start of a new semester. And all want to avoid maneuvering furniture on an icy driveway. Speak with your homebuilder about your goals and get a realistic view of the timeline from start to finish.
Finances can be a source of stress whether you are buying a new home or not. You’ll need to estimate future expenses like utilities, cost to commute, and extras like new furnishings. Your homebuilder can connect you with neighbors and local experts to get a handle on projected expenses.
