It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood here at Southpointe, a Summit Homes Community in Overland Park. While I sit at the model home and have discussions with visitors, here are a few of the benefits we've discussed about owning a new Summit home.

  • You don't need to sell your current home before you build.
  • You will not have to make a mortgage payment until your new home is complete.
  • You do not need a 20% down payment to build.
  • You can build with a fixed price and no surprise costs
  • You can choose from a variety of lots
  • You select the floorplan that best suits you and design selections to fit your budget and taste.
  • You do not have to worry about supply and demand that results in a bidding war and drives up the price of your new home.
  • You will have a 1, 2 and 10 year builder warranty for certain categories of construction.
  • Your home is built energy efficient by today's standards.
  • Everybody's new to the community,  it's not so awkward to get to know your neighbors.
  • Rest easy from day one. 


THE DOWNSIDE OF BUYING A RESALE: You have to purchase your own warranty. The home may not be built with the most up-to-day efficiencies. The location is chosen for you. The layout is what it is you inherit from the previous owners, as well as the design taste.And, you start out with a much larger honey-do list from day one. Plus, so many unknowns that may not have been discovered by the first buyer to disclose, or you might have to rely on their selective memory of things.
