Should you be holding out for lower home prices?
If you’ve been on the house hunt anytime in the past year-and-a-half, you know how crazy the real estate market has been. Aside from the chaos of purchasing a used home, new-construction homes have remained in high demand across the country. Recently, many Americans have halted their home-buying journey—hoping to hold out for a drop in home prices. But are they making the right decision?
The Dallas-Fort Worth area was not immune to steady and significant increases in home prices over the past 18 months. Industry experts predict this will only continue throughout the rest of the year and into 2022, due to a few different factors—the shortages and rising costs of the materials necessary to build homes, the cost of labor and a record-high demand for homes with little inventory. Sandlin Homes has some insight as to why now is the time to buy a new-construction home.
Make a positive investment
Without a dip in prices on the horizon, there’s no reason to put off buying a home until next year. Sandlin Homes is building high-quality homes and developing sought-after communities throughout DFW now—and the sooner you buy, the better long-term investment your home will be.
If you know you’ll be looking for a new home in the near future—due to a new job, growing family, right sizing, retirement or even a desired change of scenery—there’s nothing wrong with getting a jump start on the process now, before prices go up even more.
Have a part in bettering communities
When communities like Palmilla Springs in Fort Worth are in the beginning stages, homeowners who get in early have an opportunity to play a huge role in the development of a burgeoning neighborhood. The benefits of buying early in a new community include premium lot selection, first choice at floor plans, their preferred exterior finishes and more. You can even find ways to get involved with welcoming new neighbors to the community, creating an inviting and friendly atmosphere that will shape the way the neighborhood grows for years to come.
