Design their dream homeIf a homeowner had the choice of designing their home or settling for an existing property, most would choose to design a new one. In new homes, you would get to select which countertops, cabinets, flooring, appliances, light fixtures, color of paint, and more. This home would reflect your style and not someone else's style.Floor plan and layoutIn a new home, you could choose if you want a one or two story home, where you would want the kitchen to be and how large you want the room, do you want a master bath off the master bedroom, do you want a basement, where will the bedrooms be located, attached garage, and more. With new homes, you can design it the way that fits your needs and taste.
Under warrantyBuying an existing property most likely has things that will soon need replaced. With a new home, it and the products that comprise it are under warranty, as they are all brand new. It should be a while before anything needs replaced. For example, if something should happen to the water heater under normal usage, to fix or replace it is covered under the warranty.
Cost and energy savingsNew homes today are more energy-efficient that homes that were built ten or more years ago. Your new home will have energy-efficient appliances, energy-efficient windows that are double or triple pane, and more. Older homes may be drafty and not as cost savings as a new home and have older outdated appliances and HVAC systems.Community amenitiesToday new homes are built in subdivisions and communities that offer a pool, clubhouse, fitness center, and more. Older homes are built in neighborhoods and subdivisions that do not offer these amenities.
SafetyIn new homes, you will find state-of-the art circuit breakers that do not seem to blow every time you plug in or turn on an appliance. Garage door openers now come with infrared beams that will stop the door from closing if a child or something is too near the door. New homes also have high efficiency air conditioners and furnaces that have less of a chance to produce carbon monoxide. New homes also come with smoke detectors and possibly carbon monoxide detectors. The paint used on the walls is lead free. Many times a new home will be equipped with a top line security system. Most of these things are not offered when you purchase an existing home.
When you're looking at new home construction, you have to remember that no one else has ever lived in the home. This means that you're not inheriting someone else's problems. Many people buy homes but don't truly know how to take care of them. This means that you may find all sorts of problems with wiring, plumbing and even cleanliness as you get situated into the home. With a new home, you don't have those issues.
You also have to remember that with new home construction, you're the one making all of the decisions. You get to choose the color schemes, the design of the tile, the color on the walls, the wood on the cabinets and everything more. If you buy a pre-existing home, you're stuck with someone else's decisions. If you want to change anything, you have to spend thousands of dollars with a contractor to do so. Even a DIY project can cost a significant amount of money.With new home construction, you are in charge of many details. You not only get to choose the details about the interior but you get to choose the lot you want and much more. When you buy pre-owed, you buy what's on the market. If there are no homes on a corner or in a cul-de-sac, you have to take what's available, whether you like it or not. A new home being constructed gives you a little more power about all of the little decisions.
Ultimately, you have to decide what you want. When you buy a new home, you want to be happy with everything. This includes location, interior and exterior. With a new home, you have two options: new construction or pre-owned. A pre-owned home is completely left up to the market. You choose where you want to live and a realtor tells you what's available. You must then choose from what's available at the time you're looking. With new home construction, many of the decisions are left up to you to make.
You may only have a limited budget to spend. With new home construction, your money may go farther. Part of this is because you're not dealing with an individual that's emotional about their house. Many homeowners charge more than what the home is actually worth because there's sentimental value rolled into the price. You shouldn't have to pay more just because someone is emotionally connected to the house you want to buy.
Top 3 advantages to buying a new home:1. Modernization 2. Warranty Service 3. Making It Yours
MODERNIZATION: New homes are designed and built with the most innovative trends, materials, and technology. With regard to design trends, wasted spaces like two story foyers and family rooms are out and smartly designed spaces meant to maximize each square foot are in. These designs incorporate spaces like walk-in closets, storage spaces (because you don't know how badly you need storage space until you don't have it, right?!), lofts designed with home offices and/or guest suites in mind, and versatile kitchens (see our kitchens on Facebook!) designed to be "home base" - a space functional enough that mom/dad can cook while the kids are working on homework, yet elegant enough that it's conducive to entertaining guests.
Additionally, in recent years, new home builders have begun to incorporate green building and energy efficient techniques in their new home designs. A few examples of these techniques include but are not limited to; Low-E (low-emittance) windows that reduce the U-factor by suppressing radiative heat flow, dryline house wrap which serves as a draft and moisture barrier, energy efficient heating and cooling systems, Energy Star appliances (which earn this label by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants, as required by the U. S. Department of Energy), all of which contribute to lower energy costs for you.
WARRANTY SERVICE: When purchasing a new home, not enough can be said about the comfort of knowing that if something malfunctions or needs a little tweaking, the one year warranty program comes into play. In a re-sale home, if a problem arises, it's entirely up to you to fix and to pay for.As a proactive measure, new homes are inspected at two different points following settlement. During these inspections, warranty technicians check the condition of the home, as well as, repair any items of concern. Although, it's important to mention that when buying new, it is not uncommon to have zero items of concern or repairs in a home months or even years after settlement.
MAKING IT YOURS: Only when you buy new can you personalize your new home with the interior selections (cabinets, ceramic tile/hardwood floors, countertops, hardware, etc.) that reflect your personal style. Yes, you can absolutely buy a re-sale home and remodel, but keep in mind that the costs are usually considerable. Said differently, there is a cost to tear out the used carpets, counter tops, cabinets and hardwood floors. When you buy a new home, it's essentially like starting with a blank canvas - it's your picture to paint - to reflect your style and fit the way you live. Additionally, when selecting your interior options, you'll have the expertise of a design studio consultant to lend as much or as little professional insight as you'd like when making your selections!
