Tips from Real Estate Experts | new construction vs resale
Low inventory of existing homes is prompting greater numbers of prospective home buyers to consider purchasing new construction.
If you cannot find exactly what you are looking for your next home - or check off enough of your wishlist to be able to make that big decision - you should talk with your real estate agent about building and explore land for sale in your desired communities.
Weigh the pros of new construction vs an existing home.
