1). Low Maintenance
Let’s face it, new homes are much lower maintenance than older ones are. The truth of the matter is that older homes require a lot of upkeep and repairs. Do you really want to spend your weekends and free time working on your house? Are you prepared financially to repair an older home? Sometimes they will need foundation repairs and roof replacements. You might even need to upgrade your appliances, furnace, and hot water heater. At a glance, an older home might seem like a good deal, but they can quickly turn into a huge financial responsibility.
2). Customize Your Space
Building a brand new home is exciting because you get to customize the space just the way you’d like it to be! From flooring to paint, cabinetry, tile, countertops, and beyond, you’ll love getting to make your home unique to your style! Keep in mind, not all home builders are created equal. It’s important to do thorough research before signing the dotted line. After all, your home is likely to be the biggest investment you ever make!
3). More Energy Efficient
Newer homes have newer technology. This means that they are likely much more energy-efficient. You’ll love saving money on your electricity bill! Good home builders invest beneath the surface of the home. It’s one thing to walk into a new home and love the aesthetic components. It’s another to rest easy knowing your home builder used the proper supplies to make your home functional for years to come!
4). Green Appliances
Purchasing a new construction home, or choosing to build one, means you’ll be able to choose the latest and most eco-friendly appliances! From dishwashers to laundry machines, refrigerators, and more, purchasing a new home means you’ll have energy efficiency and fully functional appliances.
5). Better Electrical
New construction homes are able to accommodate new technology! Newer electrical wiring means that you’ll be able to have all your modern gizmos and gadgets installed in your home. From video security systems to alarms, automated lighting, and more, newer homes allow you to have all the modern technological luxuries. Plus, your new home is likely to have more outlets than older homes do.
6). Easier To Sell
You probably agree, you never know what life will throw at you! Most homeowners want to purchase newer homes that are move-in ready. If you buy a new construction home, you’ll have a much easier time selling it in the future. Even if you don’t plan on moving any time soon, it’s nice to rest assured that you could quickly sell your home if you needed to.
7). New Home Warranty
Perhaps one of the best things about purchasing a new home is the warranty! Good home builders are proud and confident in their work. Make sure you purchase a new construction home from a builder that stands by their warranty. At Hearthside Homes, we offer a 1-year warranty on our homes.
8). Modern Floor Plans
Open-concept floor plans are great, especially for those who love to entertain! A lot of older homes have closed off spaces throughout. Newer homes tend to have a more open-concept layout. Furthermore, if you decide to build a home, you have the luxury of picking the right floor plan for you and your entertaining style!
9). A New Community
New construction homes are usually built in new neighborhoods! This means that your home is likely in a community that has all the bells and whistles. From a community pool to a clubhouse, walking trails, tennis courts, and other amenities, new subdivisions definitely have perks! In addition, new communities are typically strategically and thoughtfully placed by a developer. In which case you’re likely to have easy access to major highways, groceries, as well as dining and entertainment options!
10). Financing Opportunities
Did you know that new construction homes can mean better financing? Homebuilders often work with preferred lenders. This means that you’re more likely to get a better rate!
