I didn’t originally intend on building a brand new house, but there was a shortage for a while on homes of all kinds.
It didn’t matter if you wanted a condominium or a tiny house, everything in my town has been snatched up in the last many years.
As soon as a new property hits the market, it’s instantly sold. On one hand lots of realtors were making obscene amounts of currency on sales, but you can’t exactly make any money if there are not any available homes left to be sold. And you have to realize that a lot of the properties that get listed already have realtors associated with them, but so any realtor who lacks existing contacts and clients is now working at a loss until they can make a miracle happen. I was fortunate to find a lot at all, especially one with a water and electric hookup in place to begin with. I got various quotes from condo builders and then decided to choose one particular company because of their reviews. But the landscaping company that I chose at first wanted to charge too much money, so I decided to hire another landscaping company when I found out that they always build and install fences as well. They offered to sit turf to make a full grass, plant hedges, and construct a chain link fence around the entire lot. I took them up on their offer, but I insisted on a colorless vinyl fence instead of a metal chain link fence. I’m undoubtedly happy with my new home and the gorgeous yard outside my home. Hopefully someday I can have a family here with kids running around outside and having fun with their friends from down the street.
