    Planning a move? When you’re in the market for a home, you have two options: new and used. There are plenty of benefits to choosing new, but today we want to explore one aspect that is often overlooked: the homebuyer’s level of control in the home-buying process.

    When you go the used-home route, you have little control of the situation. You’re at the mercy of the housing market, availability of inventory and whether your bid will be accepted. Buying new, on the other hand, gives you the greatest degree of control in the home-buying process, and when you’re investing in what’s likely to be your greatest asset, it’s crucial to feel a sense of control.

    Your new home, your way: 5 aspects of the home-buying process that are within your control

    It is exciting to buy a home. Stay in control of the home-buying process by buying new! You pick your price point, your builder, your lot, your floorplan, your upgrades — and watch as the process unfolds before your very eyes. Here’s a bit more on each of these aspects:

    #1 Price point

    For many people, the first criteria for selecting a home is the all-important price point. It is the ultimate factor in focusing your search. Unlike used homes, whose values fluctuate in relation to comparables, new homes offer a “priced from” starting point. This definitive number is helpful in keeping your search parameters within your budget. This fixed starting price also allows you to explore different floorplans and different builders, comparing them side by side to discover where you’ll get the most value for your dollar — and your lifestyle.

    #2 Builder

    Buying directly from a home builder gives you major control in the home-buying process. Many home builders, including and especially those at Sterling Ranch, have an ethos to provide top-tier customer service to clients and to deliver homes built with fine craftsmanship. When you buy a used home, you rely on previous owners to be honest and forthcoming about the home’s history. When you buy new, you get a commitment from a builder that your new home is going to be built with high-quality workmanship and that it will carry a new home warranty.

    #3 Lot

    Want a south-facing driveway? West-facing windows from your great room? Do you desire to live on a cul-de-sac so the kids can ride endless loops on their bikes? Do you want a spacious corner lot? When you buy new, you have the control to handpick where your home will be to maximize this aspect of your lifestyle.

    #4 Floorplan & upgrades

    Buying used, you get what you see (and, unfortunately, what you can’t see). Buying new, you can bring your needs and wants and style to the decision-making portion of the home-buying process. There is no settling for a design that doesn’t suit your lifestyle. You’ve got choices, in layout and finishes, and this translates as control over your purchase.

    #5 Quality

    When you sign a contract to build a new home, you gain a privilege to be involved in the quality control aspect of the process. As you watch your home materialize, from dirt to done, you can inspect the craftsmanship as it is being carried out. From foundation to final touches, you, as the homebuyer, are involved in every step and serve as the ultimate quality control over your investment.
