Below is a question raised by a prospective buyer, owner or seller of Florida property and the advice we were able to give:
why are new to be built and also a few spec homes less money then an 3to 5 yr old? home both having landscaping and appliances in them.
One other point to check out: are you comparing like-for like? Does the spec home or to-be-built price include the same upgrades as the 3 to 5 year old property? For example, upgraded floor covering, cabinets and counter tops can add a lot of dollars to a house cost. Also, check out the roof: one home builder in the Central Florida market we work in has achieved some of cost savings by changing to shingles instead of barrel tiles in one community.
