- WHY BUILD A NEW HOME? -
When you’re ready to make the move to a new home, will it actually be “new” or will it be used? You have many choices, but before you make your decision, consider the advantages of purchasing a brand new home.
A newly constructed home starts from the ground up. From the building materials to the systems that run your home and the appliances you rely on, everything is 100% new. You have the peace of mind that your home is warrantied, by the builder and the manufacturers of the products.
You don’t have to wonder what could fail next—and when. You won’t encounter those unwanted surprises when you start a renovation.
Construction materials and methods continue to evolve, so a home that’s built today is more eco-friendly and energy-efficient than used homes. When you factor in the energy savings, you can see the lasting value.
Building codes have been revised to reflect higher standards for home safety, which includes codes for fire and carbon monoxide safety, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and fuel gas. A new home is built according to these more stringent regulations that protect you, your family, and your home.
When you buy a used home, you probably have a wish list of changes to make. Maybe you want to repaint the walls, change the flooring, replace light fixtures, or update the kitchen or bathroom—maybe a combination of all of these. They could be purely cosmetic changes, but you still have renovating to do after you move in.
A new home affords you the opportunity to choose all the finishes, so you have a home that is completed to your liking. The floors and walls are exactly as you’d like. You’ve chosen your colors, light fixtures, and every detail right down to the cabinet hardware and doorknobs. When you move in, your home is complete and ready for you to start your new life there!
