The housing market in Greenville is moving fast, and new construction is no exception. Today on My Greenville Home Radio, Dan Hamilton is speaking with Tiffany Hodges, a highly successful sales agent in the new Foxcroft Townes Community by Meritage Homes.
We have seen a rise in popularity of new construction in recent years, and Tiffany has been able to help many families take advantage of new construction during the last two years. Tiffany’s mother suggested she consider a career in real estate, pointing out that Tiffany can “sell ice to an eskimo.” Like all smart people, Tiffany listened to her mother’s advice and has been with Meritage for about two years now.
A typical day for Tiffany involves running the Foxcroft Townes model home, hosting listing appointments for potential clients, and networking with other agents.
Who should consider a Townhome in Greenville?
Townhomes are a great home choice, especially in a location as central as Foxcroft Townes. HOA fees are a little lower and the community can take advantage of local amenities in Greenville, TR, and more.
In Foxcroft Townes in particular, Tiffany says the community is split between first-time homebuyers and empty nesters. Additionally, many of her families moved to Greenville from New York, New Jersey, and many other states around the country, all making for a wonderfully diverse and engaging community.
What are some of the benefits of purchasing new construction?
There are a lot of benefits associated with purchasing new construction. First, the price you see is the price you pay. There are no bidding wars and no negotiation. You sign a contract, pay your earnest money, and call it a day! For those house hunters tired of the housing market’s current pace, this is a welcome change.
Another great benefit of new construction is in the name – it’s all new! New homes are built with new materials and come with a warranty when you purchase them, offering peace of mind in those first few years of home ownership. Meritage Homes goes above and beyond to deliver top-of-the-line, eco-friendly solutions to their clients. The spray foam insulation used in every square inch of a Foxcroft townhome keeps your home insulated and quiet. Tiffany likes to tell her clients it’s like “living in a Yeti Cooler compared to a brown paper bag.”
Finally, new construction removes another common obstacle in today’s market: inventory. Purchasing a new home helps you avoid fighting over too few established homes in the community.
