There are many things to consider when buying a home. One of the major factors to consider is whether to buy new or used, which is called a resale. Both types of homes have positive aspects to consider. If you are looking to buy a resale, you have the option of choosing from a wide variety of established neighborhoods that will often fit your price range. Many potential home buyers think that they cannot afford homes in these neighborhoods and are often pleasantly surprised when they discover they can. The construction on resale homes is very different from the construction of today. Many of the homes in established neighborhoods are one level, are made of brick and have larger lots, all of which are very appealing to many home buyers. On the other hand, if you buy a new home you get all the new amenities such as granite counter tops, new appliances, the buyer gets the chance to choose all their carpet colors, paint, cabinet colors, etc. plus a home warranty. New home builders also offer many down payment assistance incentives, buy down programs and many other options. There are many programs offered by FHA, VA and others that provide assistance many home buyers do not know about. Home warranties are also available for resale homes which is another positive quality of a resale. The home warranty business has been growing for many years now and makes buying a resale home more reassuring for the home buyers who need that safety net. This is most of us! This is just a small part of the home buying process that is so complex and difficult for many to deal with on their own. Make sure that you consult with a Licensed Real Estate Agent if you are looking to buy a home so that we can explain and walk you through the entire process.
