With San Antonio growing at such a rapid rate, the housing market is still going very strong. There is actually a bit of a shortage of homes within the area. This opens the door for possibilities fornew construction, which also has kept pace with the sale of existing homes within the last three years.

There are many positivereasons why you should consider purchasing a new home from a local builder. If you have never built a new homeor purchased an existing inventory newhome, please take note of the following pieces of advise.Before you visit a builder or even call one, know that most of the sales representatives are NOT real estateagents and do not have the same obligation to represent your interests in the purchase of your home. They are typically employees of the builder and, like the structure of their contracts, they sell with the builder’s interests in mind. The good news is that there is a long list of positives you can benefit from purchasing a new home.

1. Efficiency - New homes are usually built with the latest and greatest technologies for energy efficiency and savings.

2. Warranty - New homes come with one to two years of warranty along with10 years ofstructural coverage.

3. School districts - New home builders usually locate themselves near the newest and best ranked districts.

4. It is new - You are the first to use the home as well as walk on the carpet in your socks.

 A final piece of advice: To protect your interests, I recommend hiring an actual Realtor to represent you in the purchase of the new home. Thisdoes not cost you extra money, as the Realtor will be paid by the builder.

When I was in the new home business, cost of Realtor representation was the most frequently asked question. As mentioned above, it doesn’t cost you money out of pocket, but even if it did, wouldn't it be worth it? The builder does this every day and in multiple markets, and you, the buyer, may build a home once a twice in your life. Having someone who is on ‘your’ side and representing your interests can give you a strong advantage in the negotiating and purchasing process.

Please, if you have any questions, give me a call, send me a reply, text, or email and I will be happy to discuss and answer all of your new home building questions.
