In today’s seller’s market, competition is tight and existing homes for sale are tough to come by. While current inventory may be low, it is slowly on the rise thanks to local homebuilders. Luckily, new home communities continue to pop up throughout the Atlanta area. These new communities are helping to cool down the housing market and allow buyers avoid the stress of crazy bidding wars.
Purchasing a home in a new home community definitely comes with many benefits including the option to choose your homesite, customize options and even control costs through negotiation. Not only that, but builder warranties means buyers can have peace of mind knowing that their home is protected from any initial maintenance issues.
There are certainly some things to consider when buying new construction. The first and most important consideration is the location of your new home. Atlanta’s top home builders have a variety of new home communities throughout the area’s best suburbs. To help you narrow down your home search, here are a few new home communities that are definitely worth looking into.
