Buying A New Construction Home

Lake Charles Home Buyers cannot always visualize new construction homes.  Walking through a Lake Charles new construction home that has just been framed up prior to interior completion, does not show the features the home will include.  Buyers will ask about moldings, floorings, lighting etc.

Buyers need to understand what the process is with purchasing a  Lake Charles LA new construction home.

The MLS does not always give a Lake Charles Buyer alot of information to go on when viewing New Construction Homes.  The buyer must rely on what information the Realtor can share with them.  This is when knowledge and experience selling other new construction homes in Lake Charles LA becomes important.


Experienced Lake Charles Home Builders will be able to provide Spec Sheets that list all the details and features of their custom build homes.  This can usually be found on the Builder’s website and is always a helpful attchment to the MLS information sheet.  Realtors who represent local Lake Charles home builders should be able to provide Specs and floorplans of the home being built,this is not out of the ordinary and it is information that will be requested.

Success and experience go hand in hand.  Buyers should choose to work with an experienced Lake Charles Realtor who has closed new construction homes and has knowledge of Lake Charles builders.  Why? because Realtors familiar with builders new construction homes  can share  the style of home and basic features the builder includes.  It is also important that the Realtor complete the Louisiana Buy/Sell Agreement  properly regarding new construction homes.  Additional information and Addenda is required that the lender will need to refer to.

Buyers need to be educated and informed!  New home buyers or Lake Charles home buyers who have never purchased new construction will have many questions.
