Southeast Texas Home Buyers: Take This Quiz

New Residential Construction Costs In Beaumont, Texas

Thinking about buying a new home in 2010?  There's something so appealing about buying brand new construction.  Fresh carpet that has never been walked on.  Bathtubs that have never had a ring of soap scum. Appliances that still have a warranty.  Oh yes, there is something wonderful about buying directly from a builder. 

Home buyers are willing to pay a premium for "brand new".

Just how much are Southeast Texas home buyers willing to pay for the luxury of a home that has never been lived in home.  Take a look.
