While some buyers are interested in finding a deal on a fixer upper, others would prefer a brand new move in ready home. New construction homes in Live Oak FL have many advantages. While at first glance many Live Oak buyers assume new construction homes are more costly, in the long run that isn’t necessarily the case.
What are the benefits of purchasing a new construction home?
Everything is new! You don’t have to worry about replacing your AC, roof or other costly repairs many resale homes will be needing within the next few years. Not to mention brand new appliances, plumbing, electrical…the list goes on!
No renovations needed! Most buyers who purchase a resale home do not plan to leave everything exactly the same. Whether that includes updating with paint colors, newer countertops or flooring, new construction homes in Live Oak will have the latest styles.
Cost! You heard that right. Home prices have steadily been increasing in the Live Oak real estate market. A shortage of properties on the market has caused the prices to climb. A lot of buyers, after doing some diligent searching and becoming familiar with our market, are choosing to build instead. When they finally find a property in the area they like, with the space they are wanting, it may cost more to customize the property to fit the customers needs than if they were to build.
