Build new or buy existingMy wife and I are in a predicament that I am sure many other people can relate to. We are trying to decide what is our best bet for our next house, building new or buying existing. We found a builder that we really like. He builds very good quality homes and only builds up to 10 houses a year. The builder has a smaller two story that we are interested in but the one we really want is out of our price range currently. Our goal is to build the big guy in about 5 years. Our question is would it be better to build the smaller house right now or just stick with an existing house? Obviously, we'd like to get the most bang for our buck when we do sell in approximately 5 years.January 13 2011 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
