    Should You Build in Clark County Washington?

There are really three questions here-

  1. Should I be considering new construction at all? 
  2. If so, do I want to have something custom-built or do I want to buy a "spec" helps?
  3. Why would I buy or build in Clark County vs someplace else?

New vs. Existing: There are many for whom newness does not matter; all they are looking for is a comfortable place to live for themselves and their family  regardless of its age.  There are others who will end up buying a new or recently-built home because it's the best way for them to get the amenities they require.  Finally, they are are the buyers who have the same feeling that many automobile buyers have: "I want one that nobody else has owned or used."  Most of these buyers will end up looking at either building or buying something that's relatively new.

On the other hand, there are buyers who have some friend or relative who had "a bad experience building."  To them, new construction is to be avoided if at all possible.  Some people are put off by the expenses of new construction, especially if they are inclined to upgrade all the components of the home as it's being built.

Great advice it is very important to look at aspects of what you are looking for vs cost before you buy new or used. It is all about what you are looking for, sometimes you can save money, while other times it can cost you.
