Why buy a new construction home?
For a lot of us, purchasing a home is the most important purchase we’ll ever make. We do our research, decide what we want, make pro & con lists and then we search and search and search! This is the place we’ll retreat to at the end of a long day at the office, where will gather to share our meals and it’s the place our children will play and make lasting memories. Our home is our happy place and new construction might leave you a little bit happier than a pre-owned one.
When searching for your home, you often face the decision to choose between new or existing construction. While many beautiful homes exist of both types, new construction homes do have many benefits over their counterpart.
With a new focus of green living, newly constructed homes are built with energy efficient technology & standards. Features like double paned windows, high-efficiency HVAC system, and insulated ceilings are all features that decrease your energy use. Those sparkly new kitchen appliances will also share the green characteristics of the modern day. A home with poor insulation or old appliances will increase energy costs and can really hit a new homeowner is the wallet.
A pre-owned home was built without you in mind. What may have been gorgeous to the previous homeowner might be atrocious to you! With a new construction home, you can throw some of your personality into your space! Like we mentioned earlier, this is a big purchase it should be a space you love. Choose the flooring, pick your paint colors and decide on those fixtures!
Often times when you purchase a pre-owned home some level of repairs or renovations needs to be completed, whether the carpet needs replacing or the appliances are defunct. These can be extremely costly and you may end up with a never-ending list of tasks to bring the home up to your standards. Without the years of wear and tear, new construction holds up much better than an existing home.
New construction is completed using the latest building codes and safety regulations. Depending on when it was built, a pre-owned home could be unsafe or have many out-of-date violations. Lead paint and knob and tube wiring are just a couple examples of unsafe methods of home construction used in years past. We stay up to date with all building codes and laws to keep the families living in our homes safe and happy.
