How can you find and build your new home? Start here!

A new construction home can offer so much: the most energy-efficient design, high-quality materials, and a modern style. Better yet, it can be in your ideal location and have custom touches as it is being built. Plenty of Marylanders see the appeal of a customizable new construction home. The question is, how do you build a new construction home in Maryland?

Know Where You Want to Live

Maryland has so many choices for location. It isn’t just about where in the state you want to live. It’s also about the geography, the amenities, and the community setting. Central Maryland has plenty to love about it, such as the temperate climate, the many school options, the easy access to the waterfront, and plenty of shopping centers, entertainment, etc. 

Know What Kind of Community You Want

There are all kinds of communities you could call home. Which one would you like? You could live in a water-access community, a rural community, a new development neighborhood, a gated community, etc. There is an option for everyone.

You can also choose between homes with or without an HOA, a Homeowners Association. An HOA will charge a yearly fee to fund communal benefits like common area maintenance, trash pickup, and more. It will come with covenants and restrictions on what can be done on a  property to preserve values within the community. Even without an HOA, you may need to be aware of a  particular area’s rules, if any apply.

Know What Kind of Home You Want

Now comes the question of what kind of house you want to call home. Given that you want a new construction home, you can still choose between townhouses, single-family homes, or multi-generational houses with in-law suites. 

You also need to decide whether you would like a move-in ready home or start from scratch by finding land and building a home on a construction-ready lot. If you want the flexibility to make design decisions, then it’s best to go with a home that either needs to be built or is open to adjustments.

Choose Your New Construction Home Builder

Next, it’s time to find a new construction home builder who can deliver exactly what you want in your area of choice. Online research as well as visiting model homes are good strategies for finding the best builder for you.

Prepare Your Mortgage

A great new construction home builder will also have ways for you to save money on your mortgage. You will first need to save up for a downpayment, get preapproved for a mortgage, and find ways to save on your mortgage.
