When it comes to real estate choices: Buy New, Sweat Less ~

So, you are on the hunt, looking for your new dream home. If you are like many people these days, it is inevitable that at some point you will find yourself scrolling through endless real estate listings that just don’t quite meet your hopes and ideas. At that point, you may find yourself looking for an alternative. Have you thought about building your own home? What might be the advantages of new home construction?

With new home construction you have the opportunity to decide on the perfect layout and floorplan. You can choose the finishes and design details including flooring, interior paint color, light fixtures, counter tops, appliances, window treatments and more. A new construction home will best reflect exactly how and where you want to live, and what your ideal home should look like.

The long-term advantages of new home construction include:

  • low-cost maintenance (everything is new)
  • your new home is move-in ready
  • you aren’t inheriting the previous owner’s mistakes
  • Energy Efficiency is built into the plan
  • You are protected with a New Home Warranty
  • The modern floor plan is designed specifically for how you live

With modern plumbing, energy efficient appliances, the most efficient heating and air, a new construction actually means lower monthly bills and no worries about the expensive repairs that older homes can have. There is less need to worry about unexpected out-of-pocket expenses after move-in, so you can spend time enjoying your new home rather than spending your weekends making repairs and planning updates or remodels to an existing older structure.

You also don’t have to worry about replacing or living with inefficient outdated appliances, as new construction homes can come with state-of-the art appliances already installed. With modern construction and the integration of advanced technologies comes the added benefit of energy efficiency. New construction homes are built with the latest advances in construction materials and building practices, which helps new homeowners by reduced monthly utility bills.

New-construction homes can be certified by an independent, third-party home energy rater to ensure that the home meets the highest energy standards and requirements. This includes insulated walls and ceilings that helps to reduce heat loss during winter while keeping it cooler during summer. Many new homes also include high efficiency central air conditioning, further reducing utility usage.

With new construction a licensed builder is legally responsible and will stand behind the home for 10 years. This means you can be confident that the builder is responsible for repair and replacement during the warranty period, so you don’t need to worry about a broken water heater or a leak in the roof. With an older home you may not know about hidden defects or problems until they crop up – and then you’re left with the bill. A new construction home warranty gives you one less thing to worry about during the home-buying process.
