Hey everyone, long time lurker but need some advice on waiting on a new build in a different state. I’m in the process of selling my Boston condo and currently waiting for construction to start on my new house in Georgia, should be ready by Thanksgiving. So far, the plan is that I’ll temporarily move back home with my parent until the new house is done.
I’m wondering if I should find a rental close to where my house is being built? Should I be in the vicinity to check-in on the overall construction, even though my new house comes with a 10 year warranty upon completion? My design center appointment is next week and I’ve only put down my earnest monies at this point, but I’m open to looking at a few rental during the trip if suggested.
I’ve owned several properties and completed some renovations in the past. Its a new track development/addition to an existing gated community. A family friend lives nearby the construction site and might let me rent a room if needed.
For context, Im moving because I really hate Boston winters and I’m 100% wfh thanks to COVID. No one in my family has dealt with a new build so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
