When buying a new home in a new community, you usually have three options: presale, quick possession or a showhome. If you’re in the market for a new home, buying a showhome may be the perfect option. There are benefits that come with purchasing a showhome if you’re looking to live in a new community. If you’re ready to begin house hunting, here’s why buying a showhome may be the right option for you.
Professionally designed & decorated
Building a brand new home often comes with a lot of appointments to meet with designers and suppliers to determine all of your new home’s interior selections and possible upgrades. When you buy a showhome, you are able to skip most of this process. With showhomes, a team of design experts have already designed and decorated the entire home, quite often with upgraded selections! Cabinets, countertops, flooring and lights are likely to be higher-end options added to the showhome. Another perk is many times, builders are willing to sell the furniture that the home was staged with. The design team has already created a space that is aligned with the latest trends, and you can buy it as-is when the home goes up for sale.
When you buy a new home in a new community, one of the largest frustrations is that typically, the home is in a construction zone until the community development is complete. This means that when you move into your new home, for a short period of time you need to contend with some construction noise. Luckily, when you buy a showhome this is much less of a problem! When showhomes go up for sale, the construction in that phase is usually complete or near completion. This means that when you buy the showhome, the development in that surrounding area is usually done and crews have moved on to the next phase or a new community. You won’t have to live in a construction zone!
Presale homes, quick possession homes and showhomes all have different possession dates. For some, you may have to wait months. For others, you can move into your new home within weeks. When a showhome goes up for sale, possession dates are usually the earliest of the three new home choices. As a buyer, you won’t have to deal with months of anticipation and excitement over moving into your new home.
It isn’t something you normally think about when buying a new home; but one day, you may want to move. Whether it be a move to downsize or a move to grow your family, it’s likely that at some point in the future you will be putting your home on the market. Luckily, since you bought a showhome, you can sell your home with confidence knowing that your home is in a newer community, with the finest upgrades and modern design touches. You will be able to maximize the return and move on to the next chapter of your life knowing that you got the most out of your home.
Visiting and exploring showhomes is a regular practice if you’re in the market for a new home. Next time you’re going through a showhome, remember that you may have the option to buy it! Talk to the sales representative to see if that is the right option for you. As community developments near completion, expertly designed showhomes provide an additional option in new communities and the benefits may make it the perfect for you.
