When you’re looking at Greenville homes for sale, touring model homes of new construction options is an excellent choice. Here at Essex Homes, we have dozens of different floors plans you might enjoy and a lot of unique features in our homes you won’t find anywhere else. Here are some tips we put together to help you when you’re touring model homes.
Do Look Past the Staging
Home builders and real estate professionals spend a lot of time and money on staging homes just correctly to sell. The reason they do this is so that buyers can imagine what it would look like with furnishings and décor in it. The only problem with this is that it’s not your furnishings and those adorable décor items aren’t yours either. As much as possible, try to look past the staging and imagine your items filling the home.
Don’t Overdo It
Buying a new home is an exciting time, and you might be a little bit excited about touring homes that could potentially be your dream home. However, it’s best not to overdo it all in one day. In other words, try to keep your home tours to two or maybe even three per day.
Looking at model homes and trying to remember all the details of the last one while soaking in all the features of the one you’re currently looking at can get super confusing. Keeping it to just a couple of model homes every day will help you retain information on all the details you loved as well as those you didn’t.
Do Look at Plans Beforehand
Going into a model home “cold turkey” so to speak is usually not a very good idea. Try to look at some floor plans before visiting the house. That way if you walk through a model home that doesn’t have the walk-in closet in the master bedroom that you wanted, you know the option might be available because you saw it on the plans.
Don’t Keep It Quiet
As a homebuyer, you’re well within your right to ask questions and make any remarks about the house that you want to while you’re touring the model. One of the worst things that you can do is walk through a model home and keep all your opinions to yourself. Vocalizing what you like and what you don’t about a home can be helpful in processing your feelings about the house and whether it would realistically work for you.
Also, make sure to ask a lot of questions during your tour. Some things you’ll want to ask about include warranty information, how long the process will take to build, and the amenities available in the community. Asking questions while you’re touring the home can help you make the most informed choice when it comes to making your final offer.
