The housing market is going bonkers... shortages, rising pricing, populations leaving geographic areas for new ones. The interest rate game has never really been lower. Its hard to know where it will all end up. One thing is for sure, the cost of lumber, land and labor is going up. Will this create a housing bubble? or in fact are we in for a long rise?
Nobody knows for sure, what i do know is that new construction is on a rush. This is an area where i have a couple minutes of experience. While new homes are a delight in many ways, there is always a stress associated.
The top states for relocating to are Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee and South Carolina to name a few. The reasons for selecting these states are often personal and usually financial also. The difficult part is to pick an area, a city and then a neighborhood. The latter being the most important to many people. Doing your homework is a time consuming hobby for sure. I found one such neighborhood, in South Carolina. If you love larger lots, lots of green open spaces, golf and amenities then this might be for you.
Wild Wing Plantation has many individual builders and one larger semi custom builder.
a few of the names are Level 10 , Great Southern Homes, Grace Builders. The selection
of the right builder is very important.
Rule 1. always get an agent to help represent you.
Rule 2. Make sure the agent is FAMILAR with new construction. Many are not.
