So the other side of the buyer’s coin is new construction. If the idea of buying an older home with all of it’s possible issues doesn’t appeal to you, buying into a new subdivision or having a custom home built may. Doing either has plenty of benefits. Here are a few.
For example, if you had problems finding an existing home that has an open floor plan and larger rooms, a pre-built new construction will have what you need.
Along with that, you can personalize either a custom build or a home in a subdivision to be built to your liking. Choosing things like flooring color and options, wall colors, countertops and cabinetry and appliances. It may add some cost if you upgrade from builders grade, but it is what you want.
New homes are also more energy efficient and probably greener, smarter and healthier. New appliances and HVAC systems are more efficient with energy than older systems. They are healthier because of low or zero VOC paint and building materials. Smart homes, integrating technology into the home, are easily found in a new home.
Remember that maintenance cost in an existing home? Not going to find it in a new home. With everything being brand new, maintenance or replacement cost is next to nil. Plus there are also warranties on everything should something go wrong.
And let’s not forget the amenities offered in planned communities. Many include pools, park spaces, community centers, health clubs and so on. All of those are there for you, the homeowner, and mean that you don’t have to pay to have your own pool installed or an extra space in the home for work out equipment.
There are so many benefits to a new build, so why consider anything else?
If you are considering buying a new build home, you might be surprised to know that you CAN use a Realtor who will be there to protect your interests! New builders are generally happy to work with agents and you can be assured that you will get the best deal possible AND great representation!
