Soooo, hubby and I are looking into buying a new construction when we buy in January and I’m sooo excited!! My current house was built in 1951 and it will be so nice to be able to enjoy new paint, carpet, etc – ah that smell. : )
So, right now we are in the beginning phases. I’m currently talking to a real estate agent who works with a particular builder that I like. She gave me a property location to drive by yesterday, but it’s so hard to tell what the land will look like when it’s cleared. We live in a mountainous town and I’m so worried of the land not being flat. So 1st question – did anyone buy a new construction and have a hard time visualizing what the land will look like with your house on it?? We found a lot we absolutely LOVE that the builder owns – Flat, an acre, totally cleared except for woods surrounding the property. It’s so secluded! The problem? She says it will be about 25K out of our price range with the houses they have proposed for this land. So, do we stand strong and say, this is the property we want, if you can’t build a house on this property for at or under our price range, we walk?
I’m just so confused on how the new construction building process goes. Aghhh!!!
