Building a New Home in Brentwood, TN

Building a New Home in Brentwood, TN

As the Brentwood, Tennessee real estate market activity increases, the demand for Brentwood TN new homes is recovering.  Most builders prefer not to build spec homes in an effort to be more cautious than past times.  With the influx of population to the area, that makes availability of new homes tighter. 

However, there are some solutions.  One is to choose your lot and builder–get exactly what you want.  Have your realtor help you locate temporary housing for the build time.  Be careful when choosing your builder to choose one with a good track record–both from references of past clients as well as from the bank!  Have your agent do research to check for judgments, liens, etc. 

Ask to see several samples of his work.  When writing the contract, get it all on paper.  The spec sheet for the home should have as much detail as possible.  If you have seen a home with the finish out you like, document it in pictures and make it part of the contract.   Be sure there is a time frame for performance.

Building a New Home in Brentwood TN – Do Your Homework

Brentwood and middle Tennessee have some great builders as well as some that you may not prefer to work with.  Do your homework when building a new home in Brentwood TN and choosing a general location and a lot.  Be aware that recent school zoning changes have impacted values.  Use forward thinking about how zoning changes could affect the home you purchase going forward in the future. Even though you may not have children, your value will be impacted.

Learn what home features are assets in the Brentwood TN real estate market and which ones will cost you money.  Master bedrooms up don’t sell as well.  Open floor plans with the kitchen open to the family room are sought after.  Lots of light is a plus.  Not lots of windows facing west.  Is there flexible space? Wasted space? Sidewalks? A sense of community? Or acreage?

Whatever your needs, work smartly so there’s another buyer right behind you!  Make this market work for you!
