Haven't seen just what you want in a home? Do what many people are doing and consider building your own! The recently-adopted federal tax incentives are spurring new home construction – in fact, 174 new residential and vacation home communities in our area report that building is occurring right now! Prices are in a great range from affordable family houses to luxurious estates.
The same rebound is happening all over the country. Construction companies KB Homes and Lennar Corp. both posted fourth-quarter profits this year for the first time since 2007 – and are still purchasing land for building.
Building your own home can be as simple as picking a floor plan or as detailed as you like, with choices of layout, flooring, counters, cabinets – you name it.
One concern with new home construction is the possibility of Chinese drywall being used in the house. Poorly made Chinese drywall, which contained high levels of sulfur, has been in the news recently as hundreds of unhappy homeowners protest to their state government. There’s currently a state bill in process to ban it completely, but in the meantime, new home buyers can protect themselves by working with a knowledgeable Realtor in the purchase of a new home.
This growth is good news for the community and the economy, of course, but it also means that the discounts and incentives that came with new construction are rapidly disappearing. Now is the best time to get a brand-new house with all the features you want at the most competitive price!
