If a resale is priced higher than a new build, what questions should you be asking?
What would make that resale a better value?
Are there many more upgrades than the "model" you refer to?
Is the model on a busy corner lot?
If the new model is the last home in the community, the builder may offer it at a lower price.
The other agents make a good point. If you have a number of questions and you don't want to ask the sales person at the community, then sign on with a Realtor who can look at both and offer an opinion. I've worked builders and I've worked in real estate a number of years. Indeed, there is much the consumer doesn't know (and even some things most agents don't know) about new builds.
Typically, a new build will be priced higher. So, your question here may be a good one. A local agent can best assist you. And, I would say an agent who has worked with builders might be your first choice.
