Not surprisingly, both situations have their pros and cons.

One is convenience.  Believe it or not buying an existing home is more convenient even when considering the financing process, inspections, offers, etc.

Some other good reasons is that you are buying into an established neighborhood, perhaps with known good schools or near friends or family.

Mature landscaping is always a plus and chances are your landscape won’t change.

However, you’ll never get exactly what you want in a floor plan and you may have to do upgrades yourself.

You’ll have to pay attention to structural problems as well as some other remodeling challenges.

Building a home allows you to find the land you’ve always wanted and plan your landscaping.

You’ll have floor plan options and may be able to make some modifications to give the home your own “touch.”

You may have to find your own architect and builder.

The types of financing differ here also.

But, you can look forward to a more efficient home with better energy considerations.

Also, those with environmental concerns may find a new home healthier for your family.

What’s the best type for you? Either way, Galleria International Realty can make your dream come true!
