Asked by Sara P, Massachusetts • Sun Sep 30, 2007
We saw a new house on a golf course that we'd like to buy...BUT...it was just sold to someone else yesterday! The realtor says he can sell us the lot next door, which is equally nice but a bit more $, and either have us get a builder or he'd have his builder build us the same house as the one we like.
My husband has always wanted a new house, but we don't know much about the right things to look for (in both a lot and a builder) and would appreciate some advice about questions to ask, pitfalls to avoid, etc. There are only a couple lots left in this little neighborhood that backs up to the golf course, and they seem to be selling quickly now that the one house was built. Are we better off getting our own builder or telling the realtor to have his builder build the same house? If we build, I'd want to change a few things about it, but I'm afraid any changes will run the price up. I'm afraid by building we'd lose negotiating power, but we can't find what we want in town we want.
