In today's Gulf Coast market, building a new home rarely seems to cross the minds of many buyers. In fact, most potential buyers would say, "Why Build?" That's a completely logical question, especially when there is still a large inventory of unsold homes for sale. But the reality is that it's not always easy finding an existing home that will meet your expectations.
Since the real estate crash in 2007, there has been very little new construction offered in the area. So, even if you are able to find a home that comes close to meeting your criteria, chances are it will still need updating and repair work.
New construction actually provides several benefits to the homeowner, most importantly the new building codes. Today's codes not only exceed most standards to meet any storm without suffering damage, they also allow for significant reductions in insurance costs.
I've been fortunate to live on the Gulf Coast for more than 25 years. During this time, I have had the priveledge of meeting many well respected craftspeople in the construction industry that have a wealth of knowledge - knowledge they are willing to share throughout the construction process that will keep you at ease while building a new home.
