Onyx Homes Homebuyer Tool Box

Buying a new home should be a very exciting time, but there are also many things to think about during the process. To better equip you for a great experience, we have included a variety of helpful tools to keep handy.

Are you Pre-Qualified?

Every new home purchase requires you to have a fairly good idea of what you may be able to afford before the shopping begins. This important first step allows you to focus on homes within your budget. Onyx Homes offers a number of preferred finance services to assist you with prequalification.

A New Onyx Home vs. Pre-Owned

Most of us have bought larger ticket items at one time or another. For instance, let's say you need a new vehicle. We have all heard the horror stories of inheriting someone else's lemon! And even though the vehicle may have been the perfect color and had low mileage, no one told you that the transmission was on its last leg!

Homes can sometimes be the same way. A little fresh paint and new carpets don't always expose what is going on behind the walls. What are the monthly electric bills? How old is that air conditioning/heating unit? Is that siding in good shape from the inside as well? Yes, there are many important factors to consider with an older home. Here are just a few of the advantages of owning a new Onyx Home.
