Why Buy a Previously Owned Home? There are many reasons why perspective home buyers choose to purchase a previously owned home vs. new construction.  

1.  Better Price.  You potentially have a higher negotiating power with a seller vs. a real estate developer.  

2.  Better Overall Value. During the negotiating process, many times we negotiate to include certain items from the seller.  These items might include appliances and a home warranty.

3.  Charm & Character. Older homes can offer unique appeal.  It's not going to be the "standard cookie cutter" home that you get with the newer subdivisions.  The older home already possess that "lived-in" charm that the new homes just don't possess yet.  Never under-estimate the curb appeal of an tree lined street with established trees.   

If you are or someone you know is thinking of buying a home, give us a call.  

Have a great day!
