Build Custom to Avoid Bidding Wars

September 7, 2021

Weston Dean Custom Homes has brought high-quality, luxury custom homes to the Texas Hill Country area for several years. There are endless benefits to buying a new-construction home—green-building, improved energy efficiency, state-of-the-art home technology, and new-home warranties, to name a few—along with the assurance that your floor plan will be perfectly tailored for you and your family. Homebuyers can also rest easy knowing that their new house won’t surprise them with costly renovations and unexpected maintenance. 

Still, one of the most convenient benefits to buying new in our current market is the avoidance of bidding wars. If you’re looking to buy a home in the area, you probably know first-hand just how competitive the real estate market is right now. Even during an international pandemic that has shaken the economy and hit nearly every industry, competition has remained cutthroat thanks to a shortage of homes for sale, record-low mortgage rates, and a huge rush of people looking to right-size their living spaces. This much of high demand often results in head-ache-inducing bidding wars, where multiple buyers are vying for the same house. According to Redfin, in 2020 56.8% of home purchases in October were subject to bidding wars, making it the sixth straight month in the year where bidding-war rates reached over 50%. 

During these bidding wars, the terms can get pretty intense—when offers reach thousands above the original price or buyers are asked to pay in cash, it can be hard to find a home within your budget that will actually stay within your budget throughout the whole process. Used homes across Texas are selling in record times, usually with dozens of showings and high offers made days within going on the market. But when you buy a new-construction home from Weston Dean Custom Homes, we’ll offer full transparency throughout the process so you know exactly what to expect. 

How to avoid stressful bidding wars

We are committed to doing what’s right and making our homeowners as happy and stress-free as possible. Custom building will help you avoid the bidding war process in many ways; we will build on your own land, whether you bought it beforehand or need our help finding it. Homeowners can then pick the desired plan and we’ll help you personalize it to your needs. We believe that just as every person or family is unique, their home should reflect that uniqueness. Then we’ll make sure the home is finished on your timeline and placed in the right community for you without having to fight for a spot. We build in a multitude of exciting communities, from Blanco to Boerne and more.
