Should You Buy a New Construction Home When Short Sales are Plentiful in Same Development?

I intended to provide a bit of a market summary for the Phillips Landing subdivision in Rockledge, Florida.

However, after looking at the active and pending or contingent sales in Phillips Landing subdivision, I decided to address another question buyers should consider when purchasing a home in Brevard County, Florida,.......

Should one buy a new construction home while so many short sales are on the market?

Short sales sometimes frequently take a long time to close. The time frame can be as short as a few months or as long as maybe a year. It all depends.

You never know if a short sale will close but one thing you should keep in your thoughts – home prices are still falling in Brevard County, Florida.

New construction is frequently not yet completed so you are negotiating on a price for a future delivery.

When I look at Phillips Landing in Rockledge Florida I see six short sale properties under contract, another three active short sale listings and some newer construction listings at $200,000+, it makes me wonder.

Sure, it is a good time to purchase but which one? There are other considerations besides price. This is where your real estate agent and mortgage lender can help!
