Depends upon where you're buying.  Here, new construction is pricey right now as contractors are in such high demand.  Re-sale value is higher here now than new construction,

As someone who has been doing Construction Loans for over 40 years I will tell you this. To build is to spend more money and time than to FIND your new home. If you are building I always tell my borrowers to find a quality, honest and experienced builder.  Get referrals and LET HIM BUILD, and stay out of his hair. Visiting the construction site is fine,but consult,not fight  with the builder.

Buy a plot.

One should make arrangement for their final resting place before their family inherits the problem.

When that is taken car of, go buy a house.
