Do you know that the perfect time to purchase a new construction home is actually when interest rates are high?
If you haven't noticed before, construction materials become cheaper as interest rates increase. That's because producers gain incentives when they provide more supply. So even if the demand for new home construction declines, they will continue to produce raw materials such as steel and concrete.
With cheaper materials, plus a limited number of homebuyers in the market (as most will avoid the high interest rates)—developers with thin profit margins tend to offer aggresively low prices. This happens too often with local developers, because they are pressured to meet overhead expenses during a period when income is not so good.
Here's a tip from Warner Robins area expert Anita Clark: Contact developers to get an estimate of their base cost. This is the amount they spent on constructing a new home. Add in the cost of all home upgrades you want to make. The total will be the budget you need to prepare before you sign a contract.
