Benefits of Buying Land & Building Your Dream Home!

Lower Maintenance Cost

Typically when buying a home there will inevitably be things that need to be fixed or updated due to normal wear and tear. Oftentimes the entire scope of maintenance required on a house isn’t even fully realized until at least an entire year is spent in that home.  When buying land and building, everything is brand new – you will know exactly how and to what extent things are used over time. Also, with new homes, new appliances often come with warranties giving the owners a peace of mind. New homes are often built more energy efficient which will save you money on utility bills as well.

Customization

With new construction, you won’t have to choose between updating the carpeting or the cabinetBuying Land, Buildings as everything will already be move in ready and with all of the finishings that you choose! Whether having a large entertaining space or perhaps large closets are your priority – with a custom-built home you are able to pick the layout that best suites you and your needs saving you money from having to remodel a home down the road.  You also do not have to compromise on either the lot or the home, you can find the lot that gives you the yard you desire and then build the house you want. This is possible when buying a pre-existing home, but oftentimes more challenging.

AvailabilityBuying Land & Building

Finally, especially in a market like the current one where homes are selling fast, oftentimes with multiple offers, there is less competition with buying land and building. You can take your time to assure that the location is right and that all the details are how you want verses jumping into an emotional decision quickly.

While there are pros and cons to both buying a house as well as custom building one, if you are looking for more insight on which option is best for you be sure to give us a call today or view our land available for purchase!

For Sale by Owner vs Real Estate Company

Homes For Sale By Owner – Why Using A Realtor Makes the Most “Cents”

According to Realtor.com, For Sale by Owner vs Realtor“statistics show that selling your home with the assistance of a professional realtor will garner you a higher profit, enough to cover the commission in addition to putting more money in your pocket.”

Selling a home on your own (For Sale by Owner), requires a seller to do all the negotiating in lieu of relying on an experienced agent who will help you receive the best value for your home. Experienced agents will also place your home on the market for an appropriate value based upon the climate of the current local market. This is not something that is normally accurately calculated by sellers as they tend to use generic online calculators that do not take several important factors into consideration. Appropriate pricing is crucial as pricing a house too high will turn off potential buyers and squander the house’s sale potential, while pricing a home too low leaves money on the table that the seller would have otherwise put in their pocket. Once the pricing is correct, making potential buyers aware of your home being on the market is the next crucial step.

For Sale by Owner Vs RealtorMany sellers underestimate the amount of time and money that is spent on marketing in order to complete an efficient sale. NextHome Priority, use the latest, up to date technology to send listings out to 100s of websites ensuring buyers see your home regardless of where they are searching. Print medias as well as connections within the community are also crucial and prove beneficial in finding a qualified buyer for a house as soon as possible. Time and money will be saved in the long run by trusting an agent and their extensive marketing.

Coordinating and hosting showings are another time consuming part of selling a house, unless you are willing to be available to let people into your house and potentially waste a lot of time on people who just want to look as well as investors who are looking to flip your property – it is best to allow an agent to handle the scheduling.

Paperwork and the legal aspect of selling a house can be a daunting, long, and tedious task. Small details, written variances, or forgotten forms can make a huge difference resulting in future liability.

Along with saving time and potentially earning sellers more money, agents ability to answer questions and provide recommendations throughout the home selling process is invaluable.

If you’re considering selling your home, be sure to contact one of our agents today!
