Finding a New Home in the New Year

Lennar Tampa

The start of a new year is the perfect opportunity to start fresh in a new home, and current low market rates make this a great time to buy. While starting your new home search may feel a bit intimidating, we’ve put together some helpful tips on how to approach your new homebuying journey with Lennar and WCI in 2021.


A great place to start assessing your needs is to make a list of what features you’re looking for in a new home. Lennar and WCI offer a wide range of floor plan styles with different features such as granite or quartz countertops, hardwood or tile flooring, and optional outdoor living spaces. By making a list you can help narrow down your design preferences and determine which home and/or community is the right fit for your family.


Once you’ve narrowed down your list of wants, you can apply this knowledge to your search. Lennar and WCI consistently share new information about upcoming communities and delivery of new home phases, so that you can keep up to date on the latest offerings. If there is a specific community, school district, or home style you are seeking, Lennar and WCI can provide tailored communications to help you find the perfect fit.


It is very important to keep your budget in mind throughout the homebuying process, with savings set aside in order to pay for moving costs or necessary repairs to your current home if you need to sell. While many homebuilders offer certain features at an extra cost, Lennar’s Everything’s Included® approach means you’ll receive all the features you want such as energy-efficient appliances, digital connectivity, upgraded fixtures, and much more. This will really help you budget for your new home, without having to consider costs for kitchen appliances or bathroom fixtures.


One of the many advantages of buying a new home versus an older home is a warranty program to mitigate any unexpected maintenance costs. Lennar homes offer new-home warranties for peace of mind not offered by many other builders. As part of Lennar’s commitment to quality, value, and integrity, your home is covered by a limited one-year warranty on workmanship, a limited two-year warranty on systems and a limited 10-year warranty on structural elements.
