There’s something so exciting about buying a new home, but do you want a new construction home or one that is pre-owed? A pre-owned home may have a charm that is appealing and a new construction home provides opportunities for upgrades and personalization. Let’s take a closer look!

๐Ÿก Pre-Owned Homes

The pre-owned home may offer an excellent location close to established businesses, entertainment, and popular recreational attractions. The home may come with a larger parcel, mature trees, and unique architectural features.

You’ll want to ask questions about the structural integrity, systems within the home, and any upgrades that were made by the current owner. Inspections and an appraisal will provide useful information when it comes to making an offer.

๐Ÿ˜๏ธ New Construction Homes

The process of buying a new home might becomeย overwhelming.ย  Nearly all buildersย have models decked out with gorgeous furnishings, clever staging, soft music, and an inviting pool area.

You can expect new construction homes need little maintenance, be built to meet current building codes, and have more energy efficient elements. Remember that there are usually additional costs involved when choosing upgrades and many new construction homes have similar floor plans and fresh landscaping with few mature trees.

๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ New Home Regions

So, which option is right for your household? Let’s take a look at some of the most popular new home regions in Sarasota and Manatee counties.

๐Ÿ“ Parrish Homes

This region in Manatee County located north of the Manatee River in the unincorporated area of the county.ย  Parrish acquired its name from the early settlers, namely Crawford Parrish, a citrus farmer and rancher who settled in northeast Manatee County in the 1870s.
