Thinking of Building a New Home in Hampton Roads? Start Here.

There are a large number of reasons for building a new home (or buying a newly built home) rather than buying a home from someone who has lived there. Being honest with yourself about WHY you want new construction is important. So let's go through a number of the possibilities. And be sure to visit TREGNewHomes.com for the Complete New Home Collection

I like a specific new home community and new homes are being built there.

Great! Finding a location that fits your lifestyle is an important step. Often times your location decision is a key driver in some of the other major decisions that you make when building a new home such as builder, floor plans available, and amenities. While you may have a specific community in mind, checking around can show you what the options are elsewhere and help you have information as you negotiate even if you choose to built in the community that you currently have an eye on!

As you start your new home on its way to reality, start on TREGNewHomes.com and the communities page. It shows a large number of the avaialble new home communities and a brief idea of the features and amenities (as well as the cost) available in each. You can filter them by city to narrow the options as well.

I want to be able to choose the materials and look for my home so it is perfect for me.

Another great reason for choosing new construction! The key to this is negotiating effectively with builders and more importantly knowing what the trends are and what is going to add value to your new home for years to come. The TREG Associates who are in our new homes division have a broad view of what materials are on trend and the latest in the real estate market. They are happy to guide you to the best options for you and help you put the package together. It all starts with a conversation. 

I want to get the most home for my budget.

Exactly. And the difficult part about that when you are looking for a new home is a) knowing what your budget is currently buying in the new homes market and b) whether you can get the options, materials and amenities that you (beyond just the base price) and keep it in your budget. For the first part, we have made that easy buy showing you all of our new homes listed throughout Hampton Roads sorted by price. Simply click on your price range and you will get a good idea of how much home is available. 

For the second part, there is no substitute for knowledge and experience to help guide you. You will find the guidance of our new homes division to be a valuable and objective source of the options you have and some creative solutions to go from "well, we got the house built." to "Wow!!" 

I want a new construction home but don't know exactly what I want yet. 

You are not alone! This is probably the most common place that people find themselves in. They know they need a home. They want it to be a new home. But they also want to make sure that they get the best guidance that they can. They want people who know the new homes market and who will help them turn their vision for their new home into reality. A cup of coffee and a friendly conversation will go a long way to helping you define your goals and putting a plan in place to make it happen.
