There are a variety of opportunities in the Austin Real Estate Market for buyers who are looking to buy a new home. The benefits of buying a newly built home include the luxury of picking out all the features you do or do not want in your home and the peace of mind knowing that the condition of the house & the appliances are brand new.

There is a saying in real estate that you make your money when you buy. One way to make a good purchase is to enlist the help of a Realtor when buying a new home. Here are 3 ways we can help you if you are thinking about buying a new home in the Austin area:

Why You Should Have A Realtor When Building A New Home

1. Lot Selection

A home’s lot can greatly contribute to the future resale value of the home. Many lots in a new home development will not be appealing to future buyers. Often the discounts given for these lots will not be nearly enough to compensate you for the difference in sales price compared to homes on better lots when it is time to sell. In addition to lot selection, we would be able to give helpful information about the real estate market trends in the area.

2. Deciding On Upgrades

What types of upgrades will attract buyers and what upgrades should you pay the builder to do or what can you do on your own for less money? I visit 50 homes per week with buyers who give me their feedback about what they like and don’t like about homes. That insight can help you make a smarter investment and make more money when you sell.

3. Dealing With The Builder

This will likely be the only time you will build a home with a particular builder. They would LIKE to make you happy but they NEED to make me happy. Builders know that I work within a community of thousands of other people who share information if a client is not being treated fairly. I also have relationships built up over the years with management with the builders that will help if we do run into a situation.
