Congratulations! You have decided it is time to buy a new home — now what? Perry Homes’ Sales Professionals answer the most common home buyer questions to help you navigate the process and become one step closer to finding your dream house.
Frequently Asked Questions by Home Buyers
Whether you are a first-time home buyer or a seasoned veteran in house hunting, you may have a few questions about the process. Here are a few answers to common questions about home buying and tips for touring houses to help you get started.
What Types of Home Warranties Are Offered?
It is not uncommon for builders to provide buyers with warranties that offer limited coverage on workmanship and materials related to various home components, such as windows, plumbing and electrical systems for specific periods. They do not cover expenses an owner may incur if they move out of their house while repairs are made or components covered under a manufacturer’s warranty.
While the duration of coverage varies, the builder often decides the terms. At Perry Homes, we offer an Express Limited Warranty – which includes a two-year workmanship warranty and a 10-year structural warranty – on all of our newly-built properties.
How Long Does It Take To Build a Perry Homes House?
The amount of time it takes to build a home is often dependent on several factors. The most common cause of delay is adverse weather – especially rain – which can slow the construction process. Other factors that may affect construction include the home’s size, availability of materials and any changes requested by the homebuyer. Your Perry Homes Sales Professional can provide you with any updates on your home, as well as the average number of days construction takes in your community.
What Are the Benefits of Buying a Move-In Ready Home vs. Building a New Home?
Move-in ready homes offer you many of the same benefits as new-build homes but with a shorter turnaround time from contract to closing. They are built to include popular features — like smart home technology — and beautiful finishes hand-selected by interior designers. Additionally, you will not need to be calling contractors to make last-minute fixes since your new home will be ready when you are.
Building a new home has its benefits, too. You can work with the builder to choose design elements — like cabinet colors, kitchen backsplash and flooring — that match your lifestyle and desired home aesthetic. Homebuyers can also personalize the floor plan to include an outdoor kitchen, covered patio or additional garage space, providing additional customization opportunities. You will also not have to worry about replacing the roof, updating the plumbing or making significant repairs since everything in the house is new.
Can I Choose Which Features Are Included in My Home?
Every buyer has different styles and needs, which is why Perry Homes offers one complimentary design session with our Design Center to personalize your new house. From cabinets and countertops to flooring and fixtures, our team will work with you to choose the perfect touches to round out your new home’s design. Your Designer will guide you through the process to ensure your home’s design is exactly what you are looking for.
What Are Some Tips for Touring Model Homes?
Visiting model homes is an essential step in the home buying journey because it allows you to experience firsthand what your future home could look like. Here are a few tips for touring a model home to help you get one step closer to finding your dream house:
- Decide what you want. Make a list of your wants and things that are deal-breakers. This will help you stay focused as you explore each home so you choose the right home for your family’s lifestyle.
- Take notes. Take notes on the elements you want to incorporate into your new home. You will also want to take photos of anything you might want to use as a reference when it is time to decorate later.
- Ask questions. Our Sales Professionals are here to answer any questions you may have about the building process or what design elements are upgrades versus those that come standard with the home.
- Explore the community. You will want to take the time to drive around the neighborhood and explore nearby amenities and attractions around your new home.
