If you are looking for a new home to purchase in Palm Harbor, Dunedin, Oldsmar or Tarpon Springs and can't seem to find one, have you considered new home construction? Are you thinking a new home is beyond your budget?  You might be surprised.  If you are looking in a built out area, such as Pinellas County, Florida, and are willing to go out a little farther, new construction could be the answer.  What might be the advantage you ask.

Well, how about everything is brand new and comes with a guarantee!  Try that in a 50 year old home.  How often have you previewed an house that you liked, except that the appliances were almost as old as you are?  And the seller wouldn't give any consideration because it worked for him.  New home construction prices are often surprisingly affordable and well within many price ranges.  

Or how about the perfect house, except it needs a new roof?  Or needs a new air conditioner?  Newly built homes have all this, new roof, new A/C, new appliances, new flooring, fresh paint, energy efficient windows, and generally state of the art construction.

One excellent builder in the area,  Marc Rutenberg Homes even offers zero energy new homes.  These are so well built and efficient, there is no electric bill.  Imagine that.

We have a complete list of new home construction throughout the area.  You could spend hours in the car and burn many gallons of expensive gasoline looking for new home construction, or even longer on the internet searching for a home or you could give your Realtor (us I hope) a call if you want to think outside the box and consider a new home.  You might find that it is a great solution to your search.  

Would you like something newer?

The drawback might be living a few minutes farther away from the office than where you want to be or maybe driving a little more to go to the mall.  Or new construction may not be for you. So if Palm Harbor or Dunedin, or Oldsmar or Tarpon Springs just don't seem to have the house you want, think about looking at new construction.  You just might like it.
