Building New vs Purchasing Resale

(What you NEED to know)

Some Factors to consider if you want to Building A House:

While we do our best to give you the best and most recent data on how much building a home costs on average, the fact is it’s difficult to say with any certainty how much your new house construction project will cost without doing some research on home type, the area and getting estimates on enhancements you'd like.

Your overall cost can be affected by all sorts of factors, including current real estate trends, the availability of materials and labor in your area and the types and qualities of the materials you choose as well as upgrades you include.

The total price you pay will also be determined by the type of home you’re building. A very simple, small home can be relatively affordable to build. A more high-end, luxury home with multiple stories and architectural flourishes will, naturally, be much more expensive.

Resale homes are also still at a premium here on the coast of South Carolina and sometimes finding that feeling of home is difficult, but isn't that what your Realtor is there for? You will find that perfect home, I just know it!

Bottom line...if you have time to wait to build and right now we are looking at 12 months, then let's do it together! Can't wait 12 months...we've got you covered too. There are wonderful resale homes on the market today.
