Visiting a Model Home
• Proximity to places you frequent,
such as work and grocery stores.
• How much sense the layout makes to
your family and needs.
• Amenities to choose from and if they
make sense for you.
• Quotes from the seller regarding
warranties and financing options.

t’s common to find model homes
in a new development. They are
designed to entice buyers by
showcasing layout, construction
options and other amenities. Here are
some other great tips to consider
when you visit a model home.

Value of aMenities

use Your iMagination

It’s easy to go over budget when
adding amenities to a model home.
Things like granite countertops,
luxurious floor coverings and epic
bathrooms are great additions, but the
costs of these additions add up.
Don’t feel pressured by the
salesman to upgrade to more
expensive packages or additions.
Remember, it’s always possible to
renovate the property later. For instance,
maybe the granite countertops don’t
make sense to your budget right now, but
in a few years, you can save money by
installing them yourself or hiring a
contractor.

ConstruCtion Zone
When you buy a new home in a new
development, you must be prepared for

noises from construction. At least until the
community is built, you will see an
increase in machinery, traffic and workers
frequenting your surroundings. In fact, the
sales contract might require you to
acknowledge these potential disturbances.
Know what you’re getting into, and take
note of the construction activity during
your model home visit. Some builders will
make efforts to mitigate the effects of
ongoing construction, such as requiring
workers to clean up job sites and paying
for a private street sweeper.

DoCuMent Your Visits
It can be difficult to separate the
different homes you see throughout your
house-buying journey. Document your
visits by taking pictures or jotting down
notes in a notebook. Once you have
checked out all the stops on your list, use
the documentation to create a list of pros
and cons for each structure. Here are some
ideas to consider when making your
decision.

When viewing a home under
construction, it can be hard to
envision what it will look like finished.
Try to picture the house with a fullgrown lawn and how you will sculpt
the landscaping. Take a look around
the neighborhood to see how other
buyers have made the home their
own.
Talk with the sellers to discover
homeowners association fees or
restrictions before you make plans to add
exterior structures. In some cases, you
might need to get approval from an
association for additions such as a
swimming pool, a patio or a shed. Take
these potential restrictions into
consideration.
