Answers to home buying questions
Question: Why buy a new home instead of a resale?
Answer: There are several good reasons for choosing a new home. Here are just a few: New homes are designed for the way we live today, using the newest construction materials, energy-efficient considerations, livable floorplans and features such as great rooms and spacious master suites. You may have the opportunity to customize your home by choosing from a variety of flooring, countertops and cabinets. Even take advantage of optional bedrooms, baths or flex spaces. You'll have access to professional advisors along the way. And your home is all ready when you move in — with a warranty.
Question: What are CC&Rs and why have them?
Answer: CC&Rs are covenants, conditions and restrictions. It is a document that governs how homeowner associations operate and what rules a homeowner must abide. They usually include architectural and landscaping guidelines for improvements and changes to your home and yard, rules for use of shared areas, including recreation facilities. These guidelines and rules can help maintain the value of your property and community as a whole.
Question: What are the steps to finding a new home?
Answer: In choosing your new homebuilder we suggest you consider the following steps: You want a homebuilder who has a reputation for quality, craftsmanship and is there with you through every step of the homebuying process. Choose a location that has the amenities, schools and overall environment that you feel comfortable in. You may want to visit several places at different times of the day, and even talk to local residents to get a feel for the area. Then look at home size and what the needs of your family are, and can you afford to live there. Does the floorplan flow and fit your family's lifestyle? The real fun begins as you go shopping through the beautiful model homes looking for the one that says, "This is my home".
