My perspective on these new homes... I get everyone loves new but I was a bit surprised at the coziness of the community. These are ideal for the homeowner who is looking for little maintenance and who spends a lot time out on the ball field etc. with the kiddos. Or if you are a condo owner looking for larger square footage and ready for a move up, then you will want to take a look at these. The design are well thought out and with the open living concept. The location is convenient and the schools excellent.
I often get asked why do I need a Realtor when looking at new homes? Just as with a resale you want to make sure your needs are being looked after. When I have represented buyers of new homes, we have been able to negotiate pricing, fixtures and even loan terms. Most importantly if you are selling your current home, it is critical for your Realtor to coordinate both aspects.
