New Home Communities in Chandler

Aug 17, 2007
There's nothing like owning a new home, a home that's just been built. Of course, you know that the home should be free from problems, everything is brand-spanking new, and you often have a say in the features or options of the home. It's a completely different home buying experience from buying a resale home.

When you look for a resale home, there's an entire list of things you should check on carefully - the foundation of the home, windows, doors, dampness, termite infestation, condition of appliances, etc. With a new home community, you don't have to look as carefully at these items, but there is a whole other list of things you should be aware of. Here's some tips for getting the best new home in Chandler.

* Find a great real estate agent and mortgage agent. Look for a mortgage agent that can help you get preapproved and prequalified. This way you'll find out how much you can afford, and can narrow your home shopping to communities in Chandler that are priced accordingly. By the same token, when you work with an experienced, reliable real estate agent, you'll have someone who has experience working with the builders and can help you find the right Chandler community for you.

* Ask your realtor for recommendations for communities with the best quality of building for your price range. Your agent can give you information about the home construction, how warranties are offered, alternative financing, and explanation of differences in quality and lot selection.

* Check out the builder's reputation. Again, your real estate agent can give you information on which buyers have reputations for quality building, but don't hesitate to ask people in your circle of acquaintance. You'll be surprised at how many people are familiar with the builder. You should try to talk to the homeowner of a home in the builder's development so you get the perspective of someone who lives in the community after the glow of new ownership is over.

* Read through the contract for the community carefully. Many buyers overlook the contract for the community and realize later that there are many requirements for the community, including how you can paint, roof, and landscape the exterior of your home. You also want to be very clear on how much the homeowner's dues are - are they affordable?

Buying a brand-new home is exciting. Just make sure that you work with the experts in your area to get great advice on your home. Before you know it, you'll be relaxing in your elegant, new Chandler home.
