Location, Location, Location
A good realtor will start off any home search with this simple truth — you can update your home, but you can never update your location. It’s so simple, but so true. When you build your own home, not only do you get to pick out everything from paint colors to flooring to fixtures, you get to pick exactly which neighborhood you want to live in. New homes are built in new communities that are well-planned and loaded with amenities like walking trails, wellness centers, new restaurants and schools, etc. all close by. Choosing your preferred location is an invaluable perk to building new.
