Are you getting ready to buy a home in Mount Pleasant? Congrats! This is such an exciting time to become a homeowner and it is even more exciting because you are looking to buy in Mount Pleasant! But if you are anything like most buyers, you are probably debating between buying a home that is pre-existing or going to a new construction community where you can buy one that has recently been finished or build your own. Just like with anything, there are pros and cons to weigh for both and in today’s post I am going to walk you through them to help narrow your search. If you are still on the fence after reading, give me a call and I will give you more personalized advice based on your individual circumstances.



How Soon Do You Need To Move?


As a Realtor that specializes in helping families relocate to Mount Pleasant from all around the country, I know that many people have a specific timeline for when they need to be in their new home. Others have a timeline that is more of a preference. My point being that if you absolutely need to be in your new Mount Pleasant home sooner than later, you will be better off buying a pre-existing home. It could still be in a new construction community, but you will want to choose one that is either finished or close to being finished rather than one that needs to be built from scratch.



Are You Convinced You Need Something Custom?


In real estate, there are some buyers that can tour dozens and dozens of homes and not find one that meets all of their needs. Yes, sometimes a family just needs something to be customized to fit. If you are convinced that the only way to get what you want out of this major purchase is to overhaul an existing house you might just be better off building one from scratch.



How Important Are Extra Amenities?


Just keep in mind that when you buy a home in one of these communities, which is typically managed by a HOA, you will have additional fees on top of your regular mortgage. These can be assessed monthly, annually, or quarterly, and they go towards the upkeep of the amenities and the community itself so you need to be sure that those fees will fit into your budget.
