Building a new home?

March 5th, 2014

-The land is almost always the most expensive component of building new, most believe that the kitchen is the most expensive part.

-Insulation is rated by R-value, Windows are rated by E-value.

-If the builder does not pay for all materials or work completed, the subcontractor can file a construction lien on the property, holding the owner responsible for payment.

-Buying a new home helps fund parks, roads, water and sewer hookups, schools, and fire and police protection in their community.

-Fast construction is not always a sign of poor quality construction. Faster construction reduces the exposure of the home to the weather.

-Ever wonder why new homes aren’t landscaped until the construction is complete? Landscaping is left until the house is built to avoid the builders the responsibility of maintaining the landscaping along with reducing the risk of damaging the landscaping.
