Andrew Duncan, Tampa Bay's #1 Realtor and Expert, talks to Scott Eckley of DR Horton and David Diaz of Waterstone Mortgage talk about the the advantages of buying new construction in 2015 on The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show.

It's an amazing time to buy a DR Horton Home. They have a lot of communities opening in a lot of great locations --- from Zephyrhills all the way down to Sarasota. They have different price points that would cater to a wide variety of buyers. They also have a lot of inventory on the ground for people who are relocating into the area and don't want to wait 6-7 months to build a home. They need something they can move into in the course of 30-45 days.

Scott also talks about the advances in the new construction homes like the energy efficiency which had an amazing improvement in just 4-5 years. Warranty is also one thing to consider because with new construction, you also get a new roof, new A/C, a new water heater, etc. that will go along with them. Styling also looks amazing!

Andrew recaps a conversation he had previously with Arnie about advantages of buying new construction like getting utility savings, tax savings, lower cost of maintenance and lower cost of insurance.

Another important part of new construction is the technology side of it. All the bells and whistles that a normal resale home doesn't have are already included in new construction nowadays. Scott says they keep up to date with technology as more and more buyers demand it especially now that working from home is becoming a trend.

One thing that's amazing about DR Horton is that they're a large scale home builder. They not only cover Tampa Bay but their a large scale powerhouse builder in America! Scott confirms this by saying they've been named the #1 builder in America for 14 years in a row!

Another important thing Andrew mentions is the emotinal letdown some people buying a resale home is less common when working with a builder. They don't have to compete with other buyers and be afraid of losing out.

Scott invites everyone to come in and see their new communities. You can start from picking your lot, your floor plan, your view, your color which would take about 4 1/2 months to build your home start to finish. Or you can choose from their inventory that are already available that might work for you.

arnie asked Scott what was the one innovation they have in their new home that helps those who work from home. Scott says it would be the style of the home. They now offer flex spaces wherein 80% of the time, people go with den option, 100% of them work from home. They choose that to have that personal space, a small office they can work in at home. They also make sure the technology needed by these people are available in order for them to be able to work at home.
