New homes for sale in Tampa FL are available. Is one right for you? Tampa Florida and the I-4 corridor are probably the fastest growing part of Florida. If not, it is really close to it. This is probably the only place in Central FL which is growing more rapidly than Horizons West over in the Orlando area. Why? Well, the ocean and there is more room to grow here.
New construction is better. Just to put it frankly. The only advantage pre-owned homes may have is location. In all fairness homes built after 2005 are built to superior standards to homes built before 2000 because the building codes were changed due to the hurricanes in the late 1900's.
Not only are the building codes stricter but technology has also made leaps and bounds. Did you know that homes today are pressure tested? Yes they are sealed and pressurized to make sure they do not have leaks. The goal is keeping that cold air in and the heat outside. Homes today also have far superior windows which allow the natural light inside but reflect the suns most dangerous rays and heat. Combine those modern windows with modern open floor plans and you have an incredible new home with lower utility bills per square foot. Better for your pocketbook and the environment.
Right now all around Tampa but mostly in the northern parts if you are looking for traditional single family homes. Condos on the other hand are being built all over the downtown area and Bayshore Drive. There is no better way to get a view of the city or one of the nearby bays. Another option is having a home built in an older community but this may not be the best way to invest. It is best to have a similar home value to your surrounding area.
There are two ways to do this. One is more cost efficient, much less stressful and delivers you a better home. The other is what the builders dream so let's start with the latter.
Builders employ sales people that represent the builder not you. Yes they are friendly and that is how they get sales awards. However they represent the builder and may or may not let you know all of the dealer incentives or give you the best price. Trust me I have seen this countless times. Building a home takes from 4 months to over a year depending on the complexity of the build and no one involved but you cares about you. Just like a used car lot.
When is the right time to buy in a community? What price-point and style lot should you purchase that will be best for re-sale? Actually there are answers to these questions and yes they will effect your return on investment. You may also want to consider recent sales in Tampa FL. In the first 21 days of May 2021 the median price for new construction homes for sale in Tampa FL was $416,000.
The best way to purchase is to enlist my assistance. I am a licensed Realtor and Broker Associate. I am also a former union carpenter professionally trained. I have built homes and high rises and know all about them. Think of me as your guide and protector at no cost to you. I know that seems crazy but it is actually true. The builder has already agreed to pay Realtors in order for them to be able to advertise their homes on the Multiple Listing Service. You will never see a bill from me and I will most likely get your home for you for less money and a better home delivered to you at the close. My team and I can only assist a certain number of clients at a time so reach out to me today. Below are most of the new homes for sale in Tampa FL.
