Decision Time: Buy an Existing Home or Build a New One?


As real estate agents, we have worked with some future homeowners who are unsure if they want to purchase an existing home or build a new one.

They consider things such as....

"Do I want to walk on carpet where someone else has clipped their toenails?"


"Building a new home is stressful, and I can't wait 6 months to move in."

Okay, maybe the first one is a little extreme. But we heard a buyer say that once!

Bottom line, as real estate agents, we can help you find either an existing home or a locate a community and builder for a new home. Regardless, we just want to ensure that you are in your DREAM HOME, whether that's an existing one or new.
