Financial Advantages Of Buying A New Construction Home

October 10th, 2023 • 4 min read

For those eyeing the Florida housing market, the debate often centers on the merits of new construction homes versus existing properties. Is there a clear winner in terms of economy?

The journey to finding the perfect abode can be long and winding. Yet, the evolving real estate landscape presents fresh opportunities, and Manatee County, Florida, is no exception. With some homeowners holding onto their properties due to their favorable interest rates, others recognize the long-term value of making the move to a new home sooner rather than later. New construction is often the very best opportunity.

Builder Incentives: New home builders are able to offer solid and viable financial incentives, especially if buyers choose to align with their preferred lenders. This alignment can lead to superior loan terms, reduced interest rates, closing cost assistance, and significant long-term savings, making the prospect of a new home even more appealing. Further, there are several first-time buyer financing options to research that can, ultimately, offer long and short-term cost-savings.

Strategic Timing: The stage of the community’s development can also influence the pricing strategy. Early bird offers can entice initial buyers, or as projects near completion, builders may introduce incentives to close out the community, passing on savings to the buyers, thus making late purchases equally attractive. Knowing that buyer circumstances may dictate the need for a quick move, at any given time, new home builders typically have a supply of quick move-in homes at various stages of construction.

Quick Move-In Home Advantage: Builders construct spec or inventory homes designed with the most current and popular fixtures and finishes to showcase their capabilities and meet the demand from those buyers moving with time constraints. Known as Move-In Ready or Quick Move-in homes, they offer the advantage of competitive pricing, immediate availability, and potential savings.

Flexibility in Choices: Not all homesites in a neighborhood community are created equally. Lot location or home size can make a difference to the final purchase price. Additionally, while premium upgrades can elevate a home’s aesthetics, they come at a cost. Builders offer design center upgrades and options, Buyers can consider the most advantageous options as part of the purchase or opt for post-purchase improvements, ensuring savings.

Here’s why North River Ranch stands out as a more economical choice for new construction homes:
