First-Time Homebuyers: New Construction as a Solution to Inventory Shortage Woes


A little can go a long way for a first-time home buyer win in our ultra-competitive, seller's market. If you're in to month #4 of house hunting, your new home would be 1/2 way to completion by now ... at a set price that hasn't increased in tandem with our appreciating market, enjoying an experience that virtually eliminates multiple-offer bidding wars. New construction is an opportunity for you to win in today's real estate market - a brand new home with built-in equity.

Don't let anyone tell you that there aren't affordable options. Don't let anyone tell you they won't work with your agent. Don't let anyone tell you that you'll save money if you buy directly from the builder, without representation. And don't limit your options by going it alone.

Choosing the right REALTOR® as your guide is an important first step to success; a qualified and experienced professional who will be your advocate in navigating all of the new communities, price-points & floor plans, financing options & incentives, warranties & reputation, and translating new construction contracts & builder-ese.

It's All About the Benefits (to you). I offer my clients a comprehensive new home guidebook, which includes a new home communities tour and a builder-match featuring one-to-one meetings with the builders' sales reps. One of the most valuable benefits this affords my clients is that I often know about new home communities and "spec" homes that are almost at completion before they are even made public or listed in the MLS: Multiple Listing Service. Another win for you.

Let's go have fun with this!
