Real Estate Site Adds Home Plans to Mobile App
Online real estate service Realtor.com said it has added new home plans to its applications for iOS and Android, for home buyers who are interested in looking at new construction options.
The company said that around 50% of home shoppers consider new construction when they’re evaluating their options.
April data from Realtor.com finds that most of new home plans on the market are listed between $250,000 and $325,000, with a national median listing price of $291,981. The average new home plan is a two-story home of a bit more than 2,500 square feet, with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage.
Users of Realtor.com’s mobile app will now have 60,000 new home plans from approximately 7,500 new home communities to browse.
Interestingly, the highest concentration of new home plans currently on the market can be found in Texas. The Lone Star State is followed by North Carolina, Ohio and South Carolina in terms of available building plans and sites, according to the company.
Building from plans can be a fun and rewarding experience – so long as you add up all the costs. Some of these include the costs of running utilities to your new home, and installing sewerage that’s in compliance with new-build regulations. Make sure you hire a competent contractor – particularly if that contractor is you.
