New Homes Are More Expensive Than Resale

Yes, the median price of a new construction home is higher than the median price of a typical resale home, but there are other factors to consider than just the initial price. When you purchase a new construction home, you have a significantly lower chance of having to pay for pricey home repairs, like a new roof, furnace, or AC. Typically when you buy a new construction home, you receive a warranty that covers any costly and unforeseen repairs, like a brand-new roof.

It's More Difficult to Finance a Brand-New Home

Another extremely common myth in the new construction industry among homebuyers, is that a new construction home is always going to be more difficult to finance than a typical resale home. It is true that a typical new construction home will require a larger down payment, but there are also specialized new construction loans that can help you finance your dream home. Additionally, financing a new construction home is made far simpler when you are working with an experienced lender who has financed new construction homes before. Our Woodland Oaks Trusted Lenders have decades of experience in the mortgage lending industry, especially in new construction home loans. Contact them today to talk more about your options!

New Construction Homes Limit Your Design Choices

When it comes to your new construction home in Woodland Oaks, your design choices are not limited to a handful of options at best, which could be the case if you are building a spec home in another community. Our builders pride themselves on their relationships with their homeowners, and on building a home that truly meets the needs and desires of their clients!

New Construction Homes Take Too Long to Build

Similar to the myth above about the median price of a new construction home, this myth has some validity to it, but it is important to consider other factors. Building a new construction home will certainly take longer to move in than if you were to buy a resale home, but home builders will typically begin construction on one of their floor plans before they have a buyer, meaning you can add in your finishing touches, and skip a good portion of the waiting time!

Working With a Builder is Exhausting

The idea that working with a custom home builder is a pain, or exhausting, is what can happen if you work with a builder without the necessary experience or reputation. When you work with an experienced builder, your builder should keep you updated throughout the entire building process, and should stick to the design choices and finishes you have both agreed on. Our builders at Woodland Oaks have decades of experience in the home building industry, and make sure that their clients experience a process that puts their wants and needs at the forefront of the home building process.
