Why Buying New is Better Than Ever
We get it! There is fear and hesitation in buying a home right now. But we also know that the dream is still alive in you and we believe we can help. There are two HUGE considerations to buying and home and here is why buying new is better than ever. Let's break down the details.
One - Price improvements and Buyer Incentives are BACK!
You know, we know, we have homes that need to be sold! That is why Ivey worked to remove all the higher lumber and other material cost left from the pandemic boom from our prices, passing those savings on to you! Some of our home prices just improved by $10,000 to $20,000+ and may open other Ivey homes now available to you because they are more in your personal budget. That's a HUGE benefit (and something we can control)!
Ivey also has close-out incentives on townhomes in Emerson @ Crawford Creek and Brighton Woods to include FREE Blinds and Fridge! Finally, there is an extra $4000 incentive for options & upgrades on all to-be-built new homes across all communities.
Two - More New Construction Homes for Sale
Having choices is a HUGE benefit to today's home buyers. Think back to March.... if you were in the market then you know what I mean. Let's reminisce... multiple offers, no incentives from sellers, paying over list price for homes. If you were buying new then, we couldn't guarantee closing dates due to the supply chain which made a buyer's move stressful. "New construction is taking up a growing piece of the housing inventory pie as scores of homes built during the pandemic go up for sale and individual homeowners (resale) hold off listing amid the market slowdown."

Just like the real estate market is experiencing some upheaval, so is the mortgage lending landscape. Mortgage lenders and banks are forming creative loan programs that are really good and obtainable! Programs like 10/1 ARM Loans. at 5.75%* rate, that's a locked rate for 10 years with a no refinance penalty, so as the interest rates improve the loans can be refinanced. Rate Buy-Down Programs* are everywhere now and we have NO DOWN PAYMENT options for those making less than $70,000 a year. This program is perfect for a townhome! This is another HUGE benefit!
Price improvements, buyer incentives, more homes to choose from, and special financing are the BIGGEST benefits for today's homebuyers. Ivey Homes and our lenders are working with our buyers to help them buy today and keep that dream of homeownership alive! Let us help - Contact Us
