The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the entire world to spend more time at home than would normally be the case.

Many homeowners after a couple of weeks in their houses began to ask questions like, “Why didn’t I buy a home with a yard so that the kids don’t have to be inside all day?” or, “Wouldn’t I be able to work more effectively from home if I had an actual office space at home?”

With the growing population of Auburn, AL and the effects of the pandemic on home buying many are looking for new homes.

If you are one of these people, here are a couple of questions to ask when looking for a new home in Auburn, AL:

How Is the Home Constructed? 

New home construction builds can often look beautiful on the exterior, however, when you scratch beneath the surface the true quality of the home is revealed. Before buying a home you need to be assured that the quality of the home is top notch.

When looking at new construction homes in Auburn, be sure to ask your realtor the important construction questions:

What type of HVAC system and insulation is installed and is it energy-efficient?

Are the shingles and windows storm proof?

If the home has a basement or crawl space, what type of sealant or crawl space barrier did the builders use?

What type of wood was used for the home construction?

What wood stained is used and how long will that stain be effective?
