Shopping for a new home is complex. Making the best decision involves determining how many bedrooms and bathrooms you need and identifying other desirable features.

You’ll also need to identify locations where you’d like to live and calculate your budget. Once you know what type of home you’re looking for, where you’d like to live, and your budget, you’re ready to find your new home. Let’s look at how to find display homes for sale, what display homes are, the benefits of buying a display home, and other options you can consider when you’re in the market for a new home.

Where can you locate display homes for sale?

Buyers looking for display houses can go online and visit a builder’s website. Builder websites list their display houses for sale, enabling potential buyers to search listings by location. The listings identify the home’s address and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The listings also include pictures of the display home. Buyers can review brochures showing each home design’s layout and use the site to book an appointment to see the house. Builder websites also list the features in each display home and the number of square feet in the house.

What are display homes?


Display homes are model homes constructed by builders when they launch a new development. These homes serve as the builder’s sales center while constructing a new subdivision. People thinking about building can visit the sales center and tour the home to get a sense of the layout and feature options they can include if they decide to build.

Sales representatives may work from the display home every day for months until they’ve sold all available building packages. They may use the display home’s microwave to heat meals during this time. They’ll also use the display home’s bathroom while they’re working.

Will you enjoy many benefits from purchasing a display home?

A display home’s purpose is to entice buyers to hire the builder to construct their new home. Consequently, builders pay close attention to the construction process when building a display home because they want it to be perfect. Builders also invest in multiple upgrades, ensuring the home has the best features available. They’ll opt for top-of-the-line materials, such as marble countertops and hardwood floors.

Builders also invest in landscaping when they construct display homes. They ensure potential buyers see their sales center as a functioning home by adding grass and plants. They may also invest in backyard upgrades, including decks, patios, pools, and fire pits.

You can take possession of display homes quickly once they go on the market, as you don’t have to wait for former occupants to move out. Once your financing’s approved and the sale’s complete, you can close on your new property and move into your new home.

Builders may offer good deals on display homes. Since the builders no longer need the display home to serve as a sales center, your real estate agent can negotiate a reasonable purchase price.

What other options can you consider when you’re shopping for a new home?

When looking for a new home, you can also consider building instead of purchasing a display home. You may prefer a different floor plan from the display home available in the area where you want to live, or you may prefer different interior or exterior features and want the option of customizing your house to suit your design preferences and needs.

If you are not interested in building, you can have your real estate agent show you preowned homes. You should always have preowned homes inspected to ensure you know if critical repairs are required.

You can visit a builder’s website to learn about the display homes listed for sale. Online listings include information about the property and pictures. You can use the builder’s website to schedule a time to tour display homes.
