New Construction Homes Across Greenwich

EdMort_BlogPanels_Building and New Construction

The new construction market dried up pretty quickly in 2008 with the real estate 'meltdown' but the demand for new homes generally did not (comparatively). Buyers in today's market like new homes because no on else has lived there and living is turn key without the need of making repairs, doing a major renovation or the mere worry that something old might break down.

In an era where consumers like to get the latest and greatest new computers, tablets, smart phones, automobiles etc..on a regular basis (every one-to-three years), similarly is the desire to buy a new home vs. an older one. Though people do not purchase a new home every year, the concept wanting something fresh and state-of-the-art most definitely translates to the housing market. See below some choices in the new home market across Greenwich as provided by Greenwich MLS/IDX.
