We have assembled some useful resources and tips to help you find your perfect home. From a handy checklist of things to consider when doing your research and visiting in-person, to understanding the home buying process with each of our home builders, we’re here to make the home buying process as easy for you as possible.

New-Home Buying Considerations

We know buying a new-home can be an exciting, and sometimes overwhelming, process. That's why we created this guide—to help ease any worries you may have as you begin your search. Here are a few things to think about as you get started on your home buying journey. Click Here for a downloadable version of the checklist*.

  • Getting Started

    Make Your Wish List – What are the things you love about your current home? What have you always wanted to change? If you’re in the market for your first home, what are your must-haves? Think about how many rooms you’d like, large gathering spaces you’d enjoy, or the size of your kitchen. Include a little flex space to make your own home gym or game room and consider special areas for your growing family or furry friends!

    Get Your Finances in Order – What’s your budget? What are you pre-qualified for? Click here to see a list of financial considerations you may not be thinking of when buying a new-home.

    Consider Teaming up with a Real Estate Professional – Buying a new-home is more than just doing an online search – it’s about knowing an area and understanding the process. Real estate professionals can offer organized, professional guidance that ultimately means less stress for you.

    Determine When You Need to Move – Whether you want to choose a specific lot and homebuilder, or just need a new-home to move into quickly – you have options here. At Sterling on the Lake, we even have quick move-in homes available.

  • Do Your Research

    Consider New vs. Resale – New-homes offer the latest energy-efficiency and technology option available, and having a home built to the most current standards is important. Here’s a look at these and other top reasons why you should buy new.

    Check out Home Options Online – Search homebuilders, floorplans and options online to get a feel for what is available. Sterling on the Lake’s Homefinder is the perfect tool to help your search.

Not all community HOAs are created equal—and at Sterling on the Lake, our lake lifestyle offers more than most. Surrounding your beautiful new-home, you'll enjoy incredible, resort-style amenities, open green spaces, exciting community events, and a tight-knit community feeling you won't find anywhere else.
