Portland New Home Info
New houses represent an opportunity to live in a stylistically up-to-date home with contemporary interiors and exteriors. What’s more, newly-built homes in Portland are more structurally dependable than older resale homes. The combination of aesthetics and reliability has always been a draw for home buyers. Here are some tips for buying a new home in Portland.
Using a Buyer’s Agent
Buyers’ interests are best served by working directly with a buyer’s agent, not the builder’s agent. Buyers' agents represent your interests. They help put together a strong offer, negotiate on your behalf. As questions arise, your agent's understanding of the home buying process becomes invaluable.
Furthermore, not all builders put the same level of craftsmanship into their homes. The materials they use can vary widely. An excellent and experienced real estate agent can help buyers identify potential shortcomings.
New Home Inspections
A lot of folks wonder if an inspection on a new home is worth it. After all, everything is brand new – what could be wrong with a new house? Experience shows that a professional home inspection can reveal big issues like code violations down to small details like a missing garage door sensor.
Be sure that you and your agent conduct a "blue tape" walkthrough to identify any construction flaws (paint swirls, nail holes in walls, shoddy caulking, etc.) What's more, a final walkthrough, just before closing, allows you to make sure all previously-identified issues are fixed.
New Construction Home Warranties
If you buy from a reputable builder, they will offer a warranty on all homes they sell. Their warranty should be in writing and include details about what is covered and for how long.
Warranties should include coverage for any defects with the house’s major systems and structural components (HVAC, plumbing, roof, foundation, etc.) Appliances like refrigerators and ovens will be covered separately, usually by each item's manufacturer, not as a part of the builder’s warranty.
Depending on the state in which you buy a newly-built home, warranties may last up to 10 years.
Builders’ Purchase Agreements (Contract)
Builders sell homes using propriety purchase agreements put together by their attorneys, not the same form your state REALTOR® association publishes. While a builder’s purchase contract may mirror many of the terms and conditions commonly found in the more-widely-used state association's contract, a careful reading by you and your agent comes highly recommended. Don't be afraid to ask for clarification on any deal point, both from your agent and the builder's agent.
One standard provision found in proprietary contracts is dispute resolution and arbitration clauses. This means you agree to work with a neutral third-party arbitrator instead of suing a builder in court should any problems arise.
