Whether it’s your first house or your third, there are important considerations to make when thinking about building a new home. At Legacy Homes, we’ve compiled a checklist to help you determine if the time is right.
❏ You’ve done the math.
Ensuring you’ve run the numbers and knowing what you can afford is the first step in building a new home. Contact your lender of choice to get pre-approved. Or, use of Legacy Homes’ choice lenders to save time and money. We’ve cut long approval times by integrating select lenders directly into our process. Everything is fully automated, so your budget for your new home and finishes can be made more quickly. Our partners are also passionate about offering competitive rates, so getting a home could mean less money down. Plus, we will pick up your closing costs! We believe homeownership is life changing. That’s why we make getting financing for your dream home as painless and affordable as possible.
❏ You have the time and patience.
Building a new construction home takes considerably longer than that of buying an existing property. At Legacy Homes we’ve streamlined the process to make it as efficient and stress-free as possible while committing to high quality craftsmanship, but building a new home will take several months longer than the average existing home purchase.
❏ You have a good idea of what you want.
Take some time to list out “wants” and “needs” for your new home. Doing so will allow you to budget realistically. Your “needs” should include your must-haves. Your “wants” should be features or finishes that would be nice to have, but you can live without or add later. Visiting Legacy Homes models will help you find the perfect fit for your family.
❏ You know where you want to live.
Determine what area best suits your needs and think about considerations that are most important to you. How long of a commute are you willing to take? Which school district would you like your children to attend? How close is the nearest Target? Legacy Homes offers lot options in communities throughout the Omaha and Lincoln areas to help you ensure you’re building your dream home in the right location.
If you checked off most or all of these boxes, it’s a great time to start planning the home of your dreams. Contact Legacy Homes at email@example.com or 402.884.3202 to learn more.
