Top TENReasons to Buy a New Home
Warranties and Low Maintenance
Brand New Homes generally include everything you need – move in ready! When it comes to buying a new home, you’ll receive the latest and greatest in everything. New materials to build your home and also new appliances inside of your home. Appliances are constantly being updated and new technology provides the latest state-of-the-art equipment. By buying a new home, you will have the most state-of-the-art appliances throughout the home, under warranty.
- Stove and Dishwasher
- Washer and Dryer
- And more!
Start Green and Save Money - Energy Efficiency
New homes allow you to make money-saving, environmentally friendly choices from the start, instead of having to retrofit. By law, new homes must adhere to new energy codes that homes that were built in the past simply did not have.
You can choose sustainable flooring options, energy-efficient appliances, green landscaping systems and more. Additionally, new homes often have better insulation, doors and windows that will save you money on heating and cooling costs.
New Home Warranty
Just like when you purchase a new car, a new construction home – and everything in it – often comes with a warranty.
When everything in your new home is under warranty you have much less to worry about over the course of moving in, building a family and hosting friends! Everything in the home will have its own warranty. Typically, you will find items like the appliances to have their own warranty, as well as the roof coming with a much longer warranty.
Open Floor Plans
Have you had a hard time finding a floor plan that meets the search criteria you and your family are looking for?
New Home builders are studying the market to see what research is showing to be most important in their floor plans. We also have many builders who offer structural changes for no cost, ensuring you are able to “customize” the plan exactly to your liking.
Pick Your Location
Another aspect of buying brand new is the option to pick your home site. After you choose your builder and floor plan, you can purchase your vacant lot separately and in a location that suits you. Not only do you get the home of your dreams built from the ground up, you’ll get it in exactly the neighborhood of your choice instead of settling on where a pre-owned home is situated.
Ability to Customize Your Home
When you finally decide on a builder’s floor plan, you have the option to customize it. Design the home of your dreams from top to bottom before it’s ever built. You can add an extra room, create more closet space or eliminate a room all together. There are endless possibilities to creating the perfect home for you when you build new.
Additionally, you can upgrade the materials to exactly what you want. You can choose your own colors for the interior and exterior of the home, carpet styles, flooring, tile, wall coverings, light fixtures, and more.
Benefit from community amenities
If you are considering a home in a planned community, don’t discount the value of community amenities. Many communities now include pools, fitness centers and other recreational activities that will add to your experience in your new home.
Low Financing Options
Some of the biggest issues in purchasing a used home is securing a mortgage with great rates, dealing with closing costs and inspections plus the worry of the home not appraising. Many new home builders will have already done the research to offer their home at fair market value and know where the best rates are for their clients.
Paid Closing Costs
Many new home builders will pay anywhere from $6,000-$15,000 towards your closing costs on a new home — as opposed to existing homes for which you have to come up with all that extra money! This leaves you with more money to save or invest into your new home.
