Today’s technology of home building has improved tremendously over the past few decades and new homes are built better than ever before. They are solidly constructed and well designed for today’s lifestyles. New homes are highly energy efficient, with excellent indoor air quality.
From new flooring products to roofing shingles and windows, today’s building products work better, last longer and look better. The result is a brand new home that is far more comfortable and healthier, easier to maintain and more enjoyable to live in.
Existing homes do not come with a comprehensive warranty. If something goes wrong, you have to deal with it there and then, no matter what it costs. Buying a new home, on the other hand, offers peace of mind. Professional builders stand behind their work with a limited warranty.
With a new home, there are no surprises when you move in. You know how the house was built and what went into it- what you can see and what is hidden behind the walls. You also know exactly how to operate and maintain your home’s systems and equipment. If you have questions later, your builder will be there to give you a helpful and accurate answer.
Your home from the start
With a new home, you can have what you want from the very start. From layout to cabinets to flooring, new home builders offer a wide selection of standard and up-grade options. You can pick and choose what suits your own lifestyle, needs and budget.
Old homes have hazards such as asbestos, lead based paint, leaking gas lines or faulty wiring. They may predate building codes that have improved and changed over the years. New Homes have been tested to meet the strictest of safety standards.
Building a new home gives buyers lead-time to sell their home and to do some planning. If you sell your house first, you might be under pressure to accept something less than you want. Buyers can lock in their new home at today’s pricing; secure a mortgage with a capped interest rate.
Appreciation in Value
Virtually all new homes appreciate quickly. In most cases you can have instant equity in your new home the day you move in. With buying an existing home it can take years to build up equity in your home.
