What is the difference between buying a new or a foreclosed/resale home?
Which is a better buy? Are there other options?

The current economic downturn has resulted in a lot of foreclosed homes hitting the resale market. Tumbling prices and lenders desperate to offload their liabilities have sent out a message that these homes are bargains. But is that really the case? Not necessarily.

Buying resale and foreclosed property comes with a plethora of complications and in most cases is not the best option for the average buyer or investor. Builders and developers have also had to react to the plummeting prices and are offering excellent value homes loaded with incentives. Some are less than half their original asking price. This, coupled with all the benefits of a new home, more often than not make for a wise purchase for most people.

But, is there another option? Well, yes there is! We have been working diligently with builders, banks, and developers over the recent months and have secured homes at LESS than foreclosed prices, clear of lengthy foreclosure procedures, remodelled and checked and all ready to close. Some of these homes are already rented, some come with rental guarantees. These properties change on a daily basis so CONTACT US for latest availability.

We have summarised the differences between New and Foreclosed in the table below:


1. New Homes come with warranties.

2. Homes are delivered whole, complete & include new appliances, etc.

3. You benefit from a relationship with a builder's consultant to guide you through the process and answer your questions.

4. New homes are more energy efficient, saving you money everyday.

5. You receive new top quality building construction such as a new roof, new pool and new landscaping.

6. You are provided with a clear timeframe of your construction and get the enjoyment of watching your new home being built.

7. Not only do you get to choose the style of your home from the outside, you get many options about what goes in the inside. From the type of flooring in the kitchen to the walls in your shower, you get the piece of mind that your new home is what you have in mind.

8. New homes are built according to the new 2007 Hurricane code.

3. No one is there to guide you throughout the process. You need to be well prepared and research each and every detail yourself, yet still have no one to turn to after you have closed.

4. Older homes are typically less energy efficient, leaving you with higher utility bills.
