Rarely does the perfect property exist. At least in the eyes of most buyers as they are looking reasons (real or not) to offer a lower price!
While new construction homes are not necessarily "perfect," newly built is likely closer to perfect than when a buyer is considering a re-sale home or condo.
But when the choices are limited buyers are more likely to think ..."Its ONLY wallpaper!" Likewise, when the carpet is worn or stained buyers are more likely to say "Its only carpet!" Still, buyers will expect a reduction in price or an allowance if they must turn around and install new flooring.
Then there are the things that can't be changed. Location, home owner association membership and rules, traffic patterns, zip code, and the like are fixed and should be reflected in the list price.
Still, the things that can be changed, even if its later, should be carefully evaluated in a tight market.
Buyers should not let worn carpet, wallpaper or even some ugly paint obstruct an otherwise great prospective "new home" from consideration.
