You’ve probably been to a brand new housing estate before.

If you have then you’ll know that one house is singled out as the show home. This is the one that they usually select to show people because it’s the best.

By doing this it encourages people to make offers on the other houses even if they’re slightly different.

These differences are small, but they can get you a much better deal if you take them into consideration.

 

Why You Should Always Buy The Show Home

 

  • The show home usually has the best parking and most space because it has to expect multiple visitors all at once

 

  • The show home probabaly has the largest garden area because it encourages people to buy

 

  • The show home is positioned in the best place. It’s most likely got the best views, it’ll be end-of-terrace when the others are terrace, semi detached rather than the middle property, or detached and in it’s own private area. It’s also less likely to be on the main road, next to the drains, etc. The show home will always have all of the benefits of the estate

 

  • You can get a good price on the show home because it’s not exactly brand new. With people walking in and out often, it means that the house has been somewhat used, which lowers the value of the property slightly. This enables you to make an offer just below the asking price due to this reason and save a few thousand

 

  • The show home is earmarked prior to building work. This means that more care and attention will be taken when building the show home. It’s highly responsible for how much money is made, therefore extra checks and added care will be taken on every aspect. You’d expect full attention for every home, but this just isn’t true, psychologically¬†knowing that this is the show home will always increase the importance

 

With all of this taken into consideration, it suggests that the show home is a far better option, but won’t neccesarily cost more than the others.

Next time you’re at an event where multiple houses are for sale, try and enquire about the actual show home before anyone else, you’ll be glad you did when you have the best deal on the block.
