Purchasing a New Construction Home

Buying a newly constructed house comes with major perks. Your made-to-order home can be built so it’s right for you, right from the start, and you’ll avoid the maintenance and repair of an older home. Whether you’re building from the ground up or purchasing a newly-minted home that’s ready for your design ideas, there are a few things you’ll want to consider:

Would you trust your builder with your financial future?

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments you’ll make. That’s why it’s especially important to choose a builder with an excellent reputation for quality and professionalism, and to only sign a purchase contract which represents both your interests.

Your lender should represent you.

Most development builders have affiliated lenders with tempting incentive packages, but make sure to shop around before signing up. The preferred lender may have competing interests, while you want a lender who can give objective advice. Choose a lender who is familiar with new construction loans to make sure the closing process goes smoothly.

Inspectors are quality control.

Even top-quality manufacturers occasionally produce lemons. To make sure your new home matches the quality you agreed upon, be sure to hire a licensed inspector upon the home’s completion. Your inspector will help you identify any defects before escrow closes or your builder’s warranty expires.

Choose your neighbors.

Build a new community within a new development, or join an already-thriving community by building on an empty lot. As you think about where to place your future constructed home, you will have the opportunity to vet the folks who will make up your neighborhood.

Read the fine print.

Purchase contracts let you know exactly what to expect, assuming you know how to read them. Price, earnest deposit amount, timelines, even appliance upgrades are all up for negotiation, but once the contract is signed you’ve missed your chance. Unless you happen to be a real estate lawyer, you’ll want someone to help you wade through the legalese. We’re fluent, and we’re ready to translate.

The Portland Home Team can help you negotiate the best deal on your dream home. Contact us to learn more about buying land or new construction in the Portland area.
