10 Questions to Ask Before Buying A New Construction Home

Posted by Evergreen Homes on August 29, 2020 at 1:21 PM

Buying a new construction home is very different from buying an existing home. When buying a new construction home, it is not always “what you see is what you get.” It is important to clarify what’s included in the price of the home and what’s not. Often times features and materials used in model homes are upgrades or options not included in the base price of the home.

The purchase agreement will contain answers to many of your questions, but you’ll want to know certain essential things before you ever get to the contract stage. Your initial meetings with the builder are the perfect chance to get these answers. Write your questions down so you don’t forget what to ask, and don’t be shy about getting the answers you need. This is a major purchase, and you don’t want any surprises later.
