Southwest Florida is overflowing with beautiful homes. Everywhere you look, there are communities full of great properties with plenty of terrific amenities and that classic Floridian look.
Now, there are even more of these homes entering the market each month with the mini-boom in new home construction we’ve seen in Southwest Florida real estate.
The big beneficiaries of this latest boom are gated communities and other neighborhoods throughout Bonita Springs and Estero. There are plenty of great communities that are filling up with new homes that cater to the latest trends in the marketplace from savvy buyers who want it all and want perfect properties to enjoy.
If you’re considering a new home purchase, there are some things you can do to make your process easier and more enjoyable. The first is to use an agent for all new construction purchases. You may think that agents are only good for existing properties, but that simply isn’t true! Agents can help you negotiate the best possible deal with the builder and ensure that you are getting the best value from your purchase.
Agents also help you communicate with the builder to ensure that everything you want in the home is being included. Plus, the builder pays the agent’s commission at no cost to the buyer, so you’re getting help for free!
You should also decide how you want to buy a new home. There are essentially three ways to participate in new home construction. You can buy a home on spec that is already built. You can also buy a semi-custom home in a development project that gives you some versatility when it comes to how it looks and what’s in it. Or, you can choose to buy a completely custom home, one that is built per your specifications and desires.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure you have an agent to help you through the process.
