Steps to Finding a New-Construction Builder
There are many steps involved in finding the builder that will work within your budget and needs for your new home. All these steps can be overwhelming and confusing. Working with our professional real estate affiliates, Homes for Heroes will help you navigate the paperwork and all the decisions and actions that come with building your own home.
1) Decide Your Must-Haves: The “must-haves” are the items that are essential to have in your home. In the South, it gets hot. Air conditioning is often a must-have on the list of all potential home buyers. Surviving the hot and humid summers in Fayetteville will be a little more difficult without air conditioning. Check with the builder to find out the cost and options involved in installing air-conditioning.
Other items like the number of rooms, dishwasher, laundry room, and overall size of the home may be items that you are initially set on but could change based off of building costs.
2) Choose the Neighborhood: Choosing the right neighborhood for your new build is essential. Your local Homes for Heroes real estate professional will have a multitude of information that they can provide to help you choose the area that is right for you.
School zones and boundaries vary from county to county in North Carolina, and your Homes for Heroes real estate agent will be able to weigh the pros and cons of each neighborhood with you. Some builders may only build within a planned community, so it’s important to note which builders are developing the new subdivisions in the area.
3) Set Your Budget: Homes for Heroes also has a vast network of affiliated lenders that work with you to set the budget for your home. It’s good to sit down with both your real estate professional and your lending specialist to make sure you have a thorough understanding of the financing process. Homes for Heroes will work with you and save you money through the home buying process, and make sure that you are receiving your Hero Reward® check once the home-buying process is complete.
Homes for Heroes is committed to helping our everyday heroes like you find a home that works for you and your family. In Fayetteville, you have a multitude of housing choices. Working with a real estate professional that works to save you money at the end of your home-buying journey is vital to make sure you are getting the right house at the right price, and that you receive your savings check at the close of your purchase. Connect with one of our real estate professionals in Fayetteville today, and take the first step to achieving your home-buying (or building) dream.
