Another path and a much easier path is to research and choose a new home community that is right for you. New Home Communities typically have homes built by just one particular new home builder but sometimes you will find communities that have two builders that will build in the same new home community. Each builder and community will offer different home styles, price ranges, building quality, size of lots, and new home options that are available for you to choose from. Each builder will tell you the benefits of their homes and communities when you call or visit. http://www.55properties.com is designed to help you sift through the many different builders and communities prior to visiting the few that actually meet your criteria. You will see that you can find what school districts each community is served by, the location of each community, the type of homes built in the community, and the starting price that you can build a home for in the community. When building in a new home community, the builder and developer work together to handle all of the lot site work, zoning, permits, utilities, etc. making this a much easier path to your new home.
If you want a new home but need to move quick there are several new home plans in the North Hills that have listings available.
