What you Must Know about your New Home Builder

Tuesday, July 18, 2006 posted by Tommi Crow

Are you in the market for a brand new home? With demand high and supply low, shoddy workmanship is a recurring nightmare for many future home owners. Do yourself a favor and check out “Home Owners for Better Building” at www.hobb.org before you sign a contract to purchase.

With home sales slowing, home builders are offering very lucritive incentives to get you to buy. Before you accept that free “gift”, ask yourself, what do you need to know before you buy? What problems have other home buyers had with the builder? What is your recourse if you have a problem with your new home? What contract terms should you avoid?

The Home Owners for Better Building website is a great information resource for anyone in the market for new construction. Topics on www.hobb.org include contract clauses to add or avoid; Lemon Laws about new home construction per state; common new home defects listed by topic; lawsuits and legal action against home builders in your area; a listing of all major home builders with compliants; links to submit compliants to a variety of sources and authorities; negotiation advice; warranty issues and much more.

Check out this website before signing legally binding documents with a home builder. Even if they give you a free appliance package, swimming pool or cash back if you buy today, please don’t without checking the facts and their reputation!!
