Buying new construction means you are the first one through the door and in the house. No one else has lived here until you arrived.

Tips to Buying New Construction
If you think that new construction is the route you'll go, you have to determine where your starting point is. Are you looking for a home that's almost ready to move in? Do you want something that you can customize some of the cosmetics and final touches? Or, are you looking to build from the ground up choosing the right space and parcel, utilities, easements, layout, design or a completely new build? New construction homes don't necessarily mean you have to choose a home within a developing community with homebuyers that are already set for that development. You can choose to go "rogue" by choosing a parcel of land first and then custom building your home from the ground up starting with your own home builder. While this is a little more tricky, it's definitely doable in Hernando County.
Finding where your starting point is can help set the groundwork for your search. Obviously, going from the ground up and using your own custom builder detailing everything from the layout and size to the final molding and paint colors, is going to be the most time-consuming and tedious. If you don't feel you have the time to answer every question about the build, a move-in ready home or somewhere almost ready to be finished is probably the better option.
