Buying a new home is not a decision that most people take lightly. Frequently, that new home purchase is a side effect of a big transformation in your life. From relocating for work or family reasons, to downsizing or upsizing for retirement, or even pursuing a lifelong dream, your new home purchase is normally part of a larger transition. Those transitions can easily feel overwhelming if you’re uncertain about the future, and that feeling can cause confusion about even the most straightforward decisions. While we can’t give you answers to some of life’s hardest questions, we can help you be more prepared for the home-buying process. To help you prepare, here are 6 important questions to ask a new home builder.
If you take a moment to think back to the last time you toured a model home, you’re probably remembering two things. The first is likely the way that the professionally designed interior inspired you to design your own home, to choose or upgrade fixtures, or even just to choose color palettes and paint swatches. The second is imagining what it would be like to actually live in the home. That meant making decisions about which room would be the guest room, which would be an office, and figuring out whether or not your furniture will fit (let alone everything in storage in your garage).
