Understanding New Construction Homes

Has the idea of a new construction home come up in conversation recently? We know it can seem like information overload when it comes to gathering the facts about building a new house, but Center Island Contracting’s design-build firm can break it down for you so it’s a bit easier to digest.

In simple terms, a new construction home is any house built from the ground up, whether as a knock down and rebuild on your own lot, or on a new lot of land you bought specifically to build on. As the homeowner, your family is the first to live in this home once construction is completed.

Factors to discuss with your home builder include:

  • Timeline of the new construction project and how that fits into your lifestyle
  • Budget
  • Design preferences
  • Materials
  • Permits
  • Inspections
  • Location
  • Construction fees
  • Mansion tax
  • Closing costs
  • Resale value
  • Construction financing and new construction loans
  • Landscaping

Each of these factors will be specific to your new build, and our experts at Center Island Contracting can walk you through this information to clear up any ambiguity or fear associated with the new build process.
