It’s True, “They Don't Build ’em like They Used To!”
Here are some of the many advantages of buying a new construction home versus a previously owned home.
You can build a new home to your own personal specifications by choosing the home site, floor plan, options and other features you want to include, such as flooring, cabinets, hardware, lighting, appliances, etc.
A new home has a superior warranty that covers the structure and many electrical, plumbing and HVAC components so you don't have to worry about expensive repairs that are so common with a previously used home.
A new home includes new technology and superior building techniques and materials, water-saving plumbing fixtures, and energy-efficient appliances and HVAC units ... all which leaves more money in your pocket each month!
Building codes are always improving, so a new home is built to the highest standards including superior building materials.
New composite products - such as siding and trim -- used in new construction require less maintenance and saves you money.
Hard-wired smoke detectors now used in new homes increase fire safety to protect what's most precious to you.
Fewer repairs are needed in a home without years of wear and tear.
Financing through a new home builder is more attractive because relationships with preferred lenders offer numerous mortgage options and potential savings on closing costs, which means you might actually be able afford "more house."
Peace of Mind
There's peace of mind knowing that a home inspector has "signed off" on your new home; the home comes with no prior history; a previous owner isn't going to have a key to your home, and you can rest assured that your family is safe and secure!
