If you are thinking of buying a home in North Scottsdale, you will have lots of decisions to make before you end up in your dream home. One major detail to consider is the home builder that best fits your needs, especially if you’re purchasing a new build. After all, you will want a house that feels safe and sturdy enough to last for decades, and the builder you choose should have a track record of high-quality homes.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the myriad builder choices, consider some of these factors before you choose a North Scottsdale home builder.
1.Basic Home Needs
You should first consider what features you want when it comes to your next home. If you’re looking for a 5-bedroom house, you won’t want to spend time researching a builder that specializes in townhomes or cozy starter houses. Likewise, if you want to stick to a modest budget, contacting a custom home builder might not be the right move for you. Keep in mind the type of home you are looking for, the amount of space you need, and your budget before you let your real estate agent know which builders’ properties to look into.
Many builders only construct homes in certain communities. In particular, you will find that the builders of a lot of North Scottsdale houses only build here, not in other areas of the Valley. Of course, this also means that some builders in Chandler, Tempe, Phoenix, or other local areas don’t build in North Scottsdale. This is why you should check out the available locations before you fall in love with a particular builder that doesn’t offer homes in this city.
3. Floor Plans
Another detail to look at is the floor plans that local builders have available. As you browse home listings online before telling your real estate agent which homes you want to see, you might notice that the same builder is associated with many of the houses that catch your eye. This may be because the company tends to construct a lot of basement homes, homes with open floor plans, or any other specific type of home you’re looking for. This is a simple way to determine which local builders are right for you, since most feature lots of floor plans online.
Before buying a home in North Scottsdale, you should find out how satisfied buyers have been with the builders you like. You can read reviews online or ask your real estate agent what he or she has heard about the builders on your list. You can also ask your friends and family members which company built their home and whether they’re happy with the results years later.
5. Resale Value
You should also take into consideration how well the builder’s homes hold their resale value. This is another question your real estate agent can help you with, since most agents have access to information like this. If a builder’s homes consistently rank low for resale value, you might want to steer clear if you plan on ever selling the house you are considering buying.
