I Took Clients on a Hard Hat Tour Yesterday
As part of our home search I took clients on a hard hat tour yesterday.
We were exploring new homes for sale in Carlsbad and toured 2 complexes we thought would work. In most cases with Carlsbad new home communities you have model homes to tour.
Model homes make it much easier to envision the different floor plans that are available to purchase, especially first time home buyers, as long as you don't get too distracted by all the great furniture and furnishings.
And because new homes in Carlsbad are selling quickly, many before they are even built, Carlsbad buyers who are interested have to move quickly by touring models and deciding which home to put a deposit on. The first complex we toured, Voscana, had 4 floor plans to tour.
No models were yet available for the new homes at the La Costa Collection but I asked if we could see the units anyway.
These new Carlsbad homes are selling quickly, in large part due to the location and proximity to a ton of amenities in La Costa (4 of the 11 homes in phase 1 are already gone with 3 more reserved).
In order to get a feel for the 2 units we were interested in, I took my clients on a hard hat tour with the sales agent.
It really helps to walk through units under construction to get a sense of size, views, and overall configuration before making a decision, instead of just looking at a floor plan if the builder allows, and they are far enough along in the construction process. Indeed, it's essential in my opinion and savvy buyers will want to do so.
Would you buy a new Carlsbad home before it was built?
You might have to in order to beat out the competition these days for the new homes for sale in Carlsbad. Many people do and if you don't want to miss out on the floor plan and location in the complex you want (and preserve today's pricing), you can't dawdle.
I know all the new home communities in Carlsbad that are selling. If I can help get you into your new home, let me know and we'll talk a tour and talk about the process adn the things you need to know as a new home buyer.
