Price is always a factor or concern when buying a house, whether it is a new home or a used home. There are many other factors that will impact a home buying decision as well, but price and location are the two most influencing factors in the decision making process. The reality of today’s economic climate has provided an even heightened focus on price. In new home construction, the builder knows the costs of the materials, the labor involved in building the house, costs for servicing the home after the homeowners move in, and the costs of operating the business. That is why home prices in new construction are generally referred to as a “cost based” prices. Nobody said it better than author John Ruskin (1819-1900) when he shared his insight on prices.
“It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balances prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better. There is hardly anything in the world that someone can’t make a little worse and sell a little cheaper – and the people who consider price alone are this man’s lawful prey.”
