Auburn is Alabama’s fastest-growing metropolitan area and has been ranked as one of the “10 Best Places to Live” by US News and World Report, making real estate and new homes for sale in Auburn very popular. Located in eastern Alabama, Auburn (within Lee County, Alabama) is a charming college town offering new construction home buyers the benefits of small-town living with the appeal of a cosmopolitan city many times its size. Award-winning restaurants, beautiful parks, top-rated schools, SEC football, and great shopping have earned Auburn its nickname, “The Loveliest Village on the Plains.” A short drive from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the town is home to Auburn University.
What to See, Do, & Eat in Auburn
Residents of Auburn enjoy everything from hiking, camping, and mountain biking in beautiful Chewacla State Park, to world-class exhibits at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art and live performance events at the new Gogue Performing Arts Center. Golfers enjoy easy access to the championship-caliber Grand National Golf Course in nearby Opelika, part of the renowned Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Kiesel Park, the city’s unofficial community hub, hosts numerous events and festivals year-round for residents to enjoy. And don’t forget SEC college football, baseball, basketball, and more!
Not only is Auburn one of Alabama’s premier college towns — it’s a center of excellent education in general. Auburn City Schools ranks among the top public school systems in the state and nation, and parents who prefer private education for their kids will appreciate top schools like The Oaks and Lee-Scott Academy. And of course, there’s Auburn University itself, one of Alabama’s largest campuses for higher education, offering more than 150 majors and enrolling 30,000 students a year.
Why Buy a New Construction Home in Auburn?
Real estate in Auburn is naturally in high demand, especially during the school year. When looking to buy an Auburn home, many people start with the typical MLS real estate listings search, checking out open houses, and working with a realtor. However, with several lovely new subdivisions springing up in the area, it makes more sense for some people to scope out new construction homes for sale in Auburn. The property values of new constructions are typically comparable to those of existing homes in this area. You can also get more square feet for the money the further you get from prime university land. Some other reasons to consider working directly with a new construction homebuilder:
From appliances to the HVAC system, from plumbing to electrical, all aspects of a new construction home are, well, new. This fact means you’ll enjoy a move-in-ready, low-maintenance home with no need for renovation. See ALL Move-in-Ready Homes.
New construction homes are built to higher codes of energy efficiency than you’ll find in older homes, so you’ll save on utility costs while protecting the environment.
Avoid unexpected costs.
With a new construction home, there’s no outdated plumbing to repair, no residual lead paint to remove, no roof to replace, and no unexpected cracks in the foundation.
With an older home, “customizing” generally means you have to pay extra to renovate the house to meet your needs. With a new construction home, you make those individual choices as you go, so you get to make it yours when you buy it — not afterward.
