When you buy a new construction home, it’s easy to overspend.


Not only will going wild in the design center leave you strapped for cash, but it will also land you with a property that’s overpriced for its neighborhood. This isn’t necessarily an issue while you’re living there, but it can quickly become a problem when you decide to sell. The design center is strategically set up to make you want to spend more money, but the options being pushed onto you often aren’t the most practical. Instead of giving too much attention to unnecessary “bells and whistles,” make functionality and structural integrity a priority.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t also select a few upgrades that will make your home more valuable. Just make sure you make these selections wisely. Things like wood floors, heated bathroom tiles, and smart-home technology are all additions that will make your home comfortable to live in and easy to (someday) sell, without costing you an arm and a leg.

One of the best ways to avoid overspending in the design center is by having a buyer’s agent working on your behalf. Best of all, doing so won’t cost you a thing, as the seller pays the agent’s commission. This professional will also be able to help you determine how much your new home should cost based on comparable properties in the area. Truly, professional representation is an invaluable resource whenever you’re buying or selling real estate.
