As soon as you set your sights on buying a new construction home, there are a variety of items that you will inevitably add to your wishlist when you’re trying to find the perfect home for you and your loved ones. Buying a new construction home is a long-term investment, and as such, you shouldn’t settle for anything less than the home you’ve always dreamed of owning. At Homes by Taber, we’ve worked with a number of homeowners over the last 22+ years and have created countless proudly overbuilt homes throughout the Greater Oklahoma City and Tulsa areas—helping our homeowners create the perfect home for them in their ideal community, and we’ll continue to do this for anyone who walks through our doors.
Deciding to purchase a home in a new construction community is an exciting time in your life—and to make it all the more worthwhile, you might want to consider getting into one of our newest communities before they begin to fill up. The benefits of moving in early to a new home community are seemingly endless, so read on to see why this might be the right move for you as you start this exciting journey to your dream home with the help of our team.
One of the biggest benefits of buying in a new home community that has just begun selling is that you get to pick first from the available lots. Whether you want to be close to the entrance of the community or you want to be near some of the top amenities that the community will soon feature, buying early allows you to choose your favorite spot before so many other potential homeowners get in—truly allowing you to create the home you’ve always wanted in a location that you’ve always dreamed of being in.
In some new home construction communities, there are also lot premiums that are included when you build on certain lots in the neighborhood. If you’re moving into a new construction community near the end of its construction, there will be a limited number of lot options available—which could leave you in a position of getting a lot with a higher premium than you originally wanted. Buying early takes away that uncertainty and gives you a full range of options in order to choose the homesite that’s perfect for you while also sticking to the budget you had originally planned for.
Choosing your homesite first also means that you have more freedom to choose from floor plans and elevations that might be a little harder to get later on in the community’s development. Additionally, there are certain floor plans that fit certain lots in a few communities—and by moving in early, you’re giving yourself every option available to find the dream home for you and the perfect homesite along with it. Our team of experts have been working with homeowners for over 20 years to help them narrow down the floor plan options and find the one that works in tandem with their lifestyle and matches their ideal design aesthetic—so no matter what, you can rest assured that you will easily be able to find the perfect home for you.
Especially as a first time homeowner, one of the main benefits you’ve undoubtedly heard people discuss many times is that buying a home instead of renting is a great investment in the long run. At Homes by Taber, our team has always done everything we can to ensure that our homeowners have a positive building experience throughout the entire process, and this includes giving them the most value possible from their new home—something that’s easily attainable when you purchase your new construction home in the beginning stages of a new community.
As soon as you purchase your new construction home, the initial home price will be locked in, and if the prices continue to rise over time as more homeowners buy within the community—your home’s resale value begins growing immediately. While we know that you’ll love living in your new home, if you do end up deciding to sell your home further down the road in order to move into a new home by our team at Homes by Taber, you’ll have a leg up on other homes throughout the same community right away. This is because your home’s resale value should continue to increase as the development of the community expanded around you during the months or years that you have owned your home.
Another perk that you might not even think to appreciate at first when you are one of the first individuals to buy a home in a specific community is the fact that everything around you will be completely new. Each road, sidewalk and amenity that our team adds in will be pristine before any other homeowners start to move in around you—giving you the opportunity to cherish every single moment you have in your community before the streets begin to fill and homes begin to pop up everywhere around you.
Within our communities at Homes by Taber, we know how important it is to have highly sought-after amenities for our homeowners to take advantage of—and when you move in early to one of our incredible upcoming new home communities, you’ll be able to enjoy the first few months strolling through the seemingly private walking paths or open green spaces that the community boasts. This will also allow you to truly settle into your new home and neighborhood before you begin to meet all of your new neighbors.
Another benefit that you won’t want to overlook when it comes to purchasing your home early in a new construction community is the fact that you will be able to truly set the tone for the neighborhood right away and begin making it a great place for future homeowners to set down their roots in.At Homes by Taber, we are always working to create communities that boast a friendly and welcoming atmosphere to ensure that all of our homeowners feel right at home as soon as they drive through the streets—and it’s truly our homeowners in particular who play a huge part of what makes that a reality.
