Purchasing a brand new home provides buyers with more benefits than ever. New homes are built with cutting-edge building products. These building systems and components are designed and engineered to work together. Almost every building material and construction technique has improved over the last 20 years. Plus, many more new products are highly advanced, including appliances and thermostats. Today, pre-wiring for the integration of high speed broadband, in-house networking, plus coaxial cable and category 5 wiring, allows for fast and easy interconnectivity as well as household controls.
Today, it is easier to shop and compare prices. Plus, the subject of home prices, values and interest rates has become regular conversation. Builders offer competitive pricing, and new homes generally sell at a higher price per square foot than older or resale homes.
Buying a new home gives you the opportunity to create your own vision, instead of inheriting someone else’s choices from decades ago. So, have fun selecting your countertops, cabinets, and flooring. Make it yours. Personalize it. Customize it. Create a living space tailored perfectly for your style.
Buying a new home allows the opportunity to select the floor plan that works best for you and your family. Whether it’s just you and your pet, or a family of four, there’s one layout that will definitely work. New, updated floor plans generally provide more usable and livable space, along with more storage, a recycling bin, a kitchen pantry, a tech area, and a dedicated master suite with closet and bathroom. Often you can select the exact location of the home in the community. Possibly it’s the corner lot or a western exposure.
A new home comes with a new home builder warranty. Plus, most of the products inside your new home are also under warranty. New appliances come with a separate manufacturer’s warranty.
New homes are required to meet stricter energy codes than older homes. So, they are far more energy efficient and have better indoor air quality. New homes have energy efficient appliances, along with windows and doors with a special glass coating. A tighter building envelope means a cooler home in the summer and a warmer home in the winter. This translates into lower energy costs and a reduction in your utility bills.
Overall, a new home requires less care and maintenance, which equals extra savings throughout the year and over time. For example, natural stone countertops look beautiful, but are also very durable and maintenance-free.
