Should a first time buyer choose new construction?


Answer by  worker8816 (29)

this would totally depend on the buyers desires in their purchase, do they want to live in a newly built neighborhood, or established neighborhood


Answer by  MSH (305)

It all depends on your budget, older home need repairs and have hidden problems and your could purchase cheaper, but you also have alot of the landscaping and other things that cost extra While new construction, you generally do not need repairs and you have a warrantee if something goes wrong

A first time buyer should focus on affordability, convenience to work and to schools if you have children, safety of the area, and quality of the neighborhood. While a new home may have fewer issues like replacing a roof, it may also have been built with inferior materials like Chinese toxic drywall. Anything newer than 10 years is fine.

New construction is a good option for first time buyers but new homes do have flaws so be careful and know what your are getting. A home inspection is a good idea even in a new home.

Yes, it would be a good idea to choose new construction. The difference is that you automatically get a one year builders warranty with a new home. The only down-side is that they usually do not have blinds like previously-owned homes.

New construction has advantages to first time buyers. Builders often offer financial incentives or upgrades, and the buyer can choose colors. A buyer should check the builder's credentials before purchasing.
