Tip of the Week for 8/18

Tip of the Week for 8/18
Construction Types

Did you know that you can search for or exclude specific construction types? This is particularly helpful for finding new construction or opportunities to build from scratch. The Construction Type field is available on the Detail search, or you can add it to the General search.

Below are definitions for each value. Even if you don’t search on this field, it’s helpful to check it on listings for which your clients are interested. You don’t want to waste time trying to schedule a showing on a To-Be-Built!

  • Previously Owned: The residence is currently or was previously occupied as a dwelling.
  • Completed New Construction: The residence is ready for occupation but has not yet been occupied.
  • Under Construction/Spec Home: Construction on the residence has begun but is not yet completed.
  • To-Be-Built/Floor Plan: A drawing or blueprint of a residence that may be purchased and constructed.
  • Model: A residence constructed as part of a sales campaign to demonstrate design, structure and appearance of a development.
