Moving into a new home in New Jersey is a pretty significant undertaking—especially if you haven’t done it before. Many people have concerns about the process but aren’t really sure where to turn for guidance. Here are a few questions you may face as you evaluate your new home choices in NJ. We’ve also included some resources that canhelp you answer those questions.
Should I build new or buy an existing home?
This is a question quite a few of our past clients have wrestled with early in the process. There are some who like the fact that they (generally) don’t have to wait as long to move into an existing home. Plus, they know (more or less) exactly what they’re getting with an existing home, because they can see the actual house they’ll be occupying. But here’s a helpful article that looks at some of the advantages of building a brand new home.
What are the basics I need to know about building a new home?
Building a home involves a lot of different details. While you don’t need to be a builder to have a great home built, there are things you need to be aware of. This free Personal Home Guide e-book addresses essential issues such as budgeting for your new home, finding the right home site, selecting the builder that’s right for you, choosing the ideal floor plan and more.
Which community is the best match for me?
Choosing the right location for your new home is about more than simple geography. What home options are available? What other information can you find about the neighborhood you plan to call home? We offer community brochures that will help you begin to collect that kind of information; here’s one for Fox Brook at Montgomery and Country Classics at Hillsborough.
What are the schools like in the area?
Making sure your children have excellent educational opportunities is critical. How can you find out about the schools in your prospective neighborhood? Here’s a post about the schools in Montgomery Township and another one that takes a look at schools in Hillsborough.
