New Construction in Tucson

For many people, nothing beats the feeling of a brand new untouched home. There are plenty of other reasons why you might be interested in new construction. For example, a new construction allows you to pick out the exact colors and specifications of the home from the beginning instead of hiring contractors to make changes. Newly built homes usually require less maintenance, and they often come with a builder’s warranty in case something goes wrong. Additionally, a newly constructed home is built to current standards, meaning that it is energy efficient, safe, and has all the modern conveniences already built in.

While most people associate a realtor with purchasing an already-existing home, a realtor is an indispensable asset when you are purchasing a new construction as well. Here are just a few of the many benefits of hiring a realtor to assist you in your purchase of a new construction:

  • A realtor can help you choose a builder and subdivision. I can obtain public subdivision reports so that you can make an informed decision.

  • A realtor knows the reputations and specialties of local builders. Allow me to apply my knowledge of local companies and subdivisions to guide you in your decision.

  • A realtor is your representative. Because I don’t represent any particular subdivision or builder, I can offer objective advice to help you choose the right home and finishes.  

  • A realtor is “relationship central.” There are many different parties involved in the construction of a new home. From the builder to the sales representative, from the lender to the construction supervisor, let me coordinate everyone for you so that you can focus on making sure that your home is the home of your dreams.

  • A realtor can help you schedule regular inspections. Don’t risk it. Ensure quality control by allowing me to help schedule inspections.

  • A realtor can review your builder’s contract. I can make sure that the builder’s contract is fair to you, and alert you when legal advice is necessary.

  • A realtor has experience with new home constructions. Did you know that factors such as building schedules can affect your financial obligation to the building company? I’ll let you know what to expect.

  • A realtor stays up-to-date on boundary survey and street dedication. A builder may not bring to your attention all the information regarding your area. I’ll make sure that you are aware of city planning decisions that could affect your subdivision.

  • A realtor can help you with the delicate timing of selling your current home. When it comes to a new construction, the timing of moving can be tricky. I can help you decide when to put your home on the market.

As you can see, hiring a realtor is crucial when you decide to purchase a new construction. Do not go into the building process without an experienced professional to represent you. Call me today to find out how my expertise can benefit your new construction purchase.
