Tips for Building a New Home in Austin

Thinking about buying a brand new home in Austin, TX? There are a lot of great reasons to invest in new construction, but there are many factors that go into every home purchase decision. Consider the advantages and disadvantages, listed below, of buying new versus an existing home, then contact Gay Puckett for more advice on the current market, financing options, and help finding the perfect new or existing home for your needs.

New Construction and Custom Home Builders

New construction and custom homes builders in Austin have created timeless designs of authentic and classic architecture with floorplans designed to enhance the way you live.  If you'd like to learn more about Austin's new construction and custom home builders, please check out my other website, New Homes in Austin, Texas

Pros

Modern amenities/convenience--New homes are built to accommodate new technology, with plenty of electrical outlets, wiring for high-speed Internet access, etc. Most feature built-in appliances and central heating air. You can also select custom options such as whirlpool tubs, walk-in closets, etc.

Warranties/less maintenance--Builders will warranty against construction defects, and appliances generally carry a manufacturer's warranty. Building materials take advantage of new advances that make them more durable, requiring less upkeep. The TRCC oversees the basic warranty.

Energy efficiency--New homes are better insulated and built with more efficient heating, cooling and plumbing systems, meaning you'll save each month on utility bills. Many builders incorporate "green" energy efficient amenities.

Health and safety--Hazardous materials such as asbestos and lead-based paint won't be found in new homes, and electrical wiring systems are built for heavy loads, so there's less risk of fire.

Floorplans that fit today's lifestyles--Oversized family rooms, large, modern kitchens, media niches, and large closets are just some of the popular floorplan features found in today's new homes.

You make it your own--You get to pick the paint color, kitchen countertop finish, carpeting, etc., and personalize it to your style.

Cons

Price--New homes cost more than existing homes. The price difference, though, might be worth it for the maintenance and energy cost savings you'll get. Gay Puckett is experienced  representing buyers and helping you decide whether a home is really worth its asking price, and help you select a lot, a floorplan and attend decorating selecting meeting. She seeks out new communities and has a good  long time working relationship with the builders in Austin

Delays--New homes are often not finished on schedule, which can delay your move-in. Often weather related.

What you see may not be what you get--A model home will likely include many features that are upgrades, such as certain finishes or landscaping. Make sure you know exactly what you're getting for your money. Gay Puckett works with builders regularly, and can help you sort through the options that make most sense for you - now and future re-sale.
