Ten Reasons To Buy New

One of the first decisions when looking for a home is whether to buy new or purchase an existing home. While there are some advantages to purchasing resale such as an established neighborhood or included upgrades, there are also many benefits of buying a new home including:

Though the price of a new home may be more expensive than an existing one, your new home is likely to need fewer repairs or replacements since everything is new. Even better, homes usually appreciate with time and when you buy a new home located in a desirable neighborhood, the value may increase even more and you likely will have a greater resale appeal if and when you sell.

A new home comes with something no older home can provide — the builder's limited warranty. This is your assurance that you are getting what you paid for and that your builder stands behind their product. A warranty typically covers new appliances, carpets, mechanical equipment and overall construction of a new home for a period of time.

New homes are more energy efficient because they are better insulated, have better windows and more efficient central heating and air conditioning systems.

With the abundance of home computers, home media centers, surround sound and other modern conveniences, new homes are being wired to accommodate state-of-the-art technology that wasn't available when many existing homes were built.

New homes may offer health advantages. Asbestos is no longer used in shingles, floor tiles, ceilings or insulation. And most often, lead is no longer used in paint, and formaldehyde emissions have been virtually eliminated from plywood and particle board.

New homebuilders use the latest and greatest materials that technology can offer. The result? New homes are virtually maintenance free for many years.

To help make the new home buying process more manageable, builders provide customers with a team of trusted professionals to guide them through the process. This is especially helpful for first-time buyers.

There is truly no place like home, and when you purchase new construction, you are able to create the setting you desire. The flooring, window coverings, appliances in the kitchen — all special touches that make your home distinct and special will be exactly what you decide.
