Bowen Family Homes Advises New Home Buyers on Purchasing a New Home Vs. a Foreclosure

Bowen Family Homes recently launched a new Web page which provides new Atlanta home buyers with information on purchasing a new home vs. a foreclosure.

Atlanta, GA, June 12, 2009 --( In today’s economy, home buyers are looking for the better deal and a lot of people tend to think that buying a foreclosed home is the best deal because of the price tag, but buying a home is a lot more than just the price. In an effort to educate new home buyers on the realities of purchasing a foreclosed home, Bowen Family Homes has added a new Web page that lists questions buyers should ask themselves prior to purchasing a foreclosed home as well as the benefits of purchasing a new home. If you are deciding between a new home and a foreclosed home, visit

Buying a foreclosed home can be very appealing because of the inexpensive price, but in reality the price may be the only positive. Here are some questions and some things to consider before purchasing a foreclosed home:

• Do you have a lot of time to search for a home?
• Are you a risk taker?
• Are you prepared to submit multiple offers on foreclosed properties and waste valuable time in your home search?
• Do you have the extra money to fix up a foreclosed home?
• Do you want the piece of mind of a home warranty or do you feel comfortable buying “as is” and taking your chances?
• Are you prepared to deal with liens on your home that are not free and clear?

The biggest problem with purchasing a foreclosed home is the time it takes to actually purchase the home and the risk of purchasing “as is.” The buyer may still decide to buy a foreclosed home, but here are some benefits of purchasing a new home that the buyer should consider prior to making their decision:

• You are the first homeowner! You don’t have to worry about how the previous homeowners treated the home prior to losing it to the bank.
• Quick response to buyer’s offer by builder.
• Built and inspected to current state and local regulations.
• “As you want it”…not “As is”
• One Year Builders workmanship and materials warranty plus two year mechanical plus 10 year structural warranty
• Closing on time – no waiting on the bank to decide if and when you will closed on your foreclosed home
