For most of us, the appeal of new construction—a brand new
home which your family is first to own—is undeniable. The idea of being able to
select your own floor plan with a layout you like and upgrades built to order is
hard to beat.
But home shoppers looking for new construction in Centennial
and Parker should be particular. If their future
home is to meet expectations, some sophisticated questions should be asked and
answered before any agreements are reached.
Home models are usually decked out with the best and most
expensive furnishings and finishes, unlike more modest packages, where the unadorned
dwelling is delivered without any fancy stuff. When you are viewing a home in Centennial
or Parker new
construction development, be sure to ask how much that specific model costs—as-is.
You can bet that the figure will be substantially higher than the most widely-advertised
low-end price…and when you question what features create the price differences,
you’ll readily determine if those are features you consider indispensable. A
little arithmetic and you’ll know how much your
home will run.
Some developers have better reputations than others, and
you’ll want to work with the very best. Ask for references, of course, and do
your own online investigation. Look at the previous new construction projects
the developer has worked on and check whether they’ve had numerous complaints
filed against them. Don’t necessarily trust every grumpy comment; but you can
tell from the general level of satisfaction what you’re likely to experience. Centennial
and Parker new construction proceeds as a complex process—one
where it pays to monitor progress to confirm that you’re getting exactly what
you want (with no changes or alterations accidentally slipping through). Before
signing on the dotted line, be sure you understand exactly what the
construction process entails, and when and how often you’ll be able to enter
the site to monitor progress. Asking the right questions and monitoring finishing work is
key in preventing unwanted surprises when it comes to new construction. If

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
