Spring and summer are often viewed as great times to purchase a new home, but just because the leaves are falling, buyers shouldn’t assume it’s too late to get in on the action! Meritus Homes was recently featured in Builder Online offering four great reasons why fall and winter offer great reasons to buy a new construction home.
The four reasons they offered, summarized, include:
- Permit approval takes time. It takes 60-90 days to get permits approved before construction can begin. If you purchase a home as it gets colder, you are leaving plenty of time for approval before early spring construction can begin. You also have plenty of time to figure out design choices and options.
- Be in over the summer. It typically takes 5-6 months for home construction. Buying now allows you time to be in over the summer to enjoy the summer features of the community and be in before school begins!
- Take advantage of the spring resale market. You’ll have optimum traffic on your existing home if you have one to sell and can take advantage of the spring resale market!
- Enjoy 2015 pricing. Aside from the low mortgage rates, buyers who purchase now before the end of the year will get to take advantage of 2015 builder pricing for labor and building materials. In 2016, builders will have new contract prices so home prices will reflect these increased costs.
