New Homes
Buying a house that is under construction gives you the opportunity to customize your new home by adding "extra" features to the basic home. When deciding on special features, consider how they will affect the re-sale value of the home and whether these additions will over-improve your home.

Money spent to improve and modernize kitchens and bathrooms is almost always a good investment. Corian counter tops, side-by-side refrigerators, quality flooring and whirlpool tubs are good ideas. Hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms are a plus when selling a home. If the builder's standard flooring for the foyer is linoleum, it is definitely worth changing to wood or ceramic. And even if you don't enjoy sitting around a roaring fireplace, the next owner may want one. If you plan to finish the basement later, you may want to "rough-in" the plumbing for a bath during the original construction. You should consider your own enjoyment--and what will increase the value of your home when you sell.
