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 our city has been snatched up in the last more than one years. As soon as a new property hits the market, it’s instantaneously sold. On one hand lots of realtors were making obscene amounts of money 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. So any realtor who lacks existing contacts and clients is really working at a loss until they can make a miracle happen. I was lucky to find a lot at all, especially one with a water and electric hookup in place to begin with. I got various quotes from home builders and then decided to choose one unique contractor because of their reviews. But the landscaping contractor that I chose at first wanted to charge too much money, so I decided to hire another landscaping contractor when I found out that they consistently build and install fences as well. They offered to lay shrubbery to make a full sod, plant hedges, and construct a chain link fence around the entire lot. I took them up on their offer, but I insisted on a white vinyl fence instead of a metal chain link fence. I’m really ecstatic with our new house and the gorgeous yard outside our home. Hopefully someday I can have a family here with kids running around outside and having fun with their friends from down the street.
