The housing crisis caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic is on going. The housing market is seeing its best sales volumes in many years. Houses are still selling within days of going on the market.

Many families not wanting to enter the bidding wars of the real estate market are looking for other options. Even older homes that are available with tax credits for renovation are selling quickly.
Many home buyers are realizing the advantages of building new. House Plan Books are in high demand.

The main advantage of building new, is that the home owner, gets the customized home that fits their individual family needs. The other considerations are home warranty and knowing the tax base and insurance requirements of your home.

The first place to start is deciding on  your square footage needs.  Acquiring house plan books, that fill your desired requirements is a must. Always remember that you can build the house of your dreams. Using your house plan books as a guide, your local house architect and contractor can make it happen. 

Your local Realtor is also very knowledgeable on all building lot set backs and area requirements, to locate a building lot, just perfect for your dream home. Your Realtor will also know of all the building lot elevation certificates on file and can help you find a lot with insurance advantages. Building lots located in a X flood zone will not require flood insurance, saving you money.

For families with Pampered Pets the prospect of building a custom home becomes very exciting. Just think, the doggie door and fencing will all be included in your dream home plans. Also when considering built in cabinetry like bookshelves, a special walkway could be created for your Pampered Pet Cat. There are so many possibilities. 

The advantages of building a new dream home are vast. Area contractors are seeing a rise in demand. The housing crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic will have lasting effects and some beautiful new dream homes built, that will last generations to come.
