6 Reasons To Buy New

6 Reasons To Buy New
  • Save

If you’re in search of a new home, you’re likely debating the benefits of a newly built home versus an established one. There are several factors you should consider before you start your search. Too many people pass up an opportunity to build their own home without thinking about the pros of new construction. Let us give you some thoughts to ponder.


Imagine for a moment you get to decide everything about your new place. These are the benefits of being able to build new and choose every aspect of your new home’s design:

1 | Easier to Maintain: Since everything from your roof to the HVAC system are brand new, you don’t have to worry about what will stop working. You get new warranties with new construction. This will help guard against major repair costs. It also means you won’t have to save as much money for when something like the water heater needs repair.

2 | More Efficient and Healthier: For example, take the Built to Save™ program—you can connect with contractors who know how to build energy efficient homes. They also understand which building materials are healthier. For instance, they can help you choose low and zero-VOC (volatile organic compound) building materials and paints that are better for your indoor air quality.

3 | Floor Plan: In a new home, you get to select how you want your house laid out. If you want a formal dining room, you can have it. If you want an open floor plan with floor to ceiling windows, you get to decide that, too.

4 | Personalized Materials: A new home allows you to decide on special features. For instance, you can choose the type of flooring or countertop material you want to use.

5 | Location: New homes tend to be built in communities that are designed for lifestyles, such as proximity to parks, schools, or public transportation. That means you can choose your new house based on a neighborhood that best suits what matters to you.

6 | Timing for Moving: It takes about five to six months to complete a new home build. This will give you time to plan for your move to take the pressure off of the process.

Remember, a new home might seem to have a higher price tag, but being able to personalize your home and save money over time will be worth the cost in the long run.
