Questions To Ask When Buying A New Home

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016

Buying a new home is exciting, but it’s important to know exactly what to look for when buying your dream home. Before you seal the deal on buying a brand-new home, there are some important and exciting questions that need to be asked first:

  1. Will there be a final walk-through on our new home? There’s nothing wrong with doing a final walk-through before you cross the T’s and dot the I’s, because it’s good to make sure that your home is EXACTLY how you want it!

  1. What type of warranty do you offer? Make sure to ask about the warranty program of your new home so you know exactly who to call or what to do incase you encounter any small problems after you move-in!

  1. What about the roof? Roof’s definitely take on a lot of wear and tear over the years, and we want to make sure you don’t end up with any hassles in the future! Our roofs are installed by amazing professionals to prevent weather damage to your new home!

  1. Who built my home? Whether you are buying your home from us at Shea Homes, or you happened to stumble upon our blog and are purchasing from a different builder, you always want to know the information about your builder. Make sure you do your research to make sure you have an experienced builder creating your dream home! Shea Homes has over 100 years of experience and thousands upon thousands of happy home buyers!

  1. What standard features does my home include? The new homes will include some special things and could even include appliances! Make sure you ask when you purchase your home if any of those things come with the home before you go out and buy new appliances and end up with two refrigerators or two stoves!

  1. What are the neighbors like? Chances are, your neighbors haven’t even moved in yet, just like you! Each community is very family-oriented, therefore you probably won’t have any problems at all with your neighbors! Most neighbors become family in each community!

And last but not least…

  1. WHEN CAN I MOVE-IN? We know you are eager to move-in to your new home, and we can’t wait for you to get in and enjoy it! Once you have your move-in date, you can plan the closing on your current home, plan the end of your rental period on your current space, and even start to plan that awesome housewarming party!

All of us at Shea Homes want you to have a positive home buying experience, and we hope this list of questions make you feel more prepared!
