Regardless if this is your first time buying a property or you’ve done it a time or two, buying a home is a big deal! You might be wondering why so many Kansas City homeowners are loving new construction homes. In comparison to resale properties, new construction homes come with a long list of benefits! In this blog post, we’ll be sharing why the new build industry is exploding in the Kansas City and surrounding areas.

We hope you enjoy learning more about why Kansas City homeowners are loving new constriction homes!  

Quick & Move-In Ready

One of the most obvious benefits of purchasing a new construction home is that the property is move-in ready for your family to enjoy! Often, our clients can purchase one of our completed spec homes and move in shortly thereafter. This offers a quick and stress-free home buying experience. 

Plus, in today’s competitive market, having the chance to buy straight from the builder definitely has its advantages! For example, if purchased prior to installation, our buyers may have the option to make material selections such as paint, flooring, hardware, lighting, and more. 

New Means Fewer Repairs

With a new construction home comes new appliances! This means you won’t have to worry about replacing appliances such as the refrigerator, microwave, oven, water heater, AC unit, light bulbs, and more. In addition, unlike older properties, new homes often come with sprinkler systems. One less thing for you to worry about! 

No Weekend Projects

HGTV makes home remodeling seem like just a quick trip to Home Depot. The reality is that home renovations are a lot more complex and expensive than one may think! If you don’t want to dedicate your weekends to making repairs on your home, new construction is definitely the way to go. Enjoy your time off with those you love most instead of checking off endless honey-do tasks. 

12-Month Warranty

Yet another perk of buying a new construction home is the warranty! We understand the purchase of a home is likely your largest investment. When you buy a Hearthside Home, you’ll rest easy knowing the property has been thoroughly inspected by third-party experts. We also offer a 12-month warranty on all of our new construction homes, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction. As the home settles, you might notice some minor imperfections. We’re happy to fix warrantable items at no additional cost to you! Talk about a win!  

Third-Party Inspections 

We can’t speak for all home builders, but at Hearthside Homes our properties are inspected by third-party experts. We want our buyers to rest easy knowing they made a great investment by purchasing one of our properties! Our inspection process encompasses the overall home as well as HVAC duct cleaning and the sewer line. We stand behind our work and we encourage a second set of eyes to conduct an impartial review. 

Safer & More Energy Efficient

Compared to older homes, new construction homes are often safer due to advances in technology in plumbing, heating, and electrical work. Not to mention, new homes come with updated smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. 

New construction homes are also generally more energy efficient. Not only do today’s appliances generally use less energy but walls are insulated better. This means your home can retain more heat during the winter, resulting in smaller utility bills. 

Sought After Design Elements

When you purchase a new construction home from Hearthside Homes, you’ll enjoy beautiful details carefully selected by our design team. We strive to make each of our homes appear on-trend, yet timeless. Our designers pick paints, countertops, flooring, lighting, and hardware, that are sure to blend seamlessly with most aesthetic preferences.

Matt says: “I had an absolutely amazing experience! Everything from the first time I saw it until closing went perfectly! The folks over at Hearthside made it as quick and easy as possible for me to get In my new home but still didn’t skimp on the quality of the house or the touch-ups before closing! Thank you all so much! Definitely recommend!”

Monica says: “Our house was a spec house that was already completed. However, when we put in our offer I had a few changes that I wanted to make, to really make the house our own. Hearthside Homes was excellent to work with and we couldn’t be happier with the final product. Every idea we had, they made it a reality. We love our finished basement and look forward to spending many winter nights watching movies in this incredible space.”
