In one wordPriceless. Dousevicz Real Estate has developed some of the areas most recognizable developments in the greater Burlington and Chittenden County area. In this time, I have personally worked with buyers and sellers alike, and I have witnessed many transactions where the buyer or buyers agent just did not have the experience in New Construction as they should. Why is this important? Because buying a new home can be a much different experience than buying a pre-existing home.
Questions you need to ask when buying a new home
Although there are some talented and experienced agents out there, most (if any) do not have the required level of experience that is necessary when buying a new home. For example:
- Do they have the experience to ask what level of finish is included with the home?
- What is the energy rating, and what is the builder doing to ensure the home is Green Certified?
- What comes standard with the home, and are upgrades available?
- Is the builder requiring that construction loans be provided by the purchaser, or will the home be turn-key and paid for upon completion?
- What if there are delays with construction?
- What subcontractors does the builder work with?
- Are there other projects the builder has worked with, and if so, are there testimonials or references that can be checked?
These are just some of the questions that immediately come to mind in the purchase of a new home, and unfortunately they often go un-asked!
