New construction homes offer so many benefits to home buyers. See the Top 6 reasons why so many consumers prefer new homes to used homes:
1) The New Home Warranty
A used home probably has some older products that may need to be fixed or replaced. Your new home — and the items that come with it — are brand-new and under warranty. There is a high cost to replace a roof, appliances, water heater, etc. on a used home. With your brand new home, you won’t need to worry about fixing or replacing big ticket items for years.
2) You Can Design Your Home Your Way
Your new home can reflect your style, not the previous owner. Don’t settle for someone else’s choices when you can choose your own colors, cabinets, counter tops and flooring. In many cases, you can choose to specify bath and kitchen fixtures, lighting and other options as well.
3) Save on Energy Costs
Today’s new homes are much more energy efficient than homes built in the past. Why settle for drafty, energy-wasting, windows in a used home? Many new construction homes offer double or even triple-pane windows. Some windows have a special coating and inert gases between the layers of glass, saving you even more energy and money in the hot and cold weather. Ask your home builder about these options
4) Comfort and Indoor Air Quality
Today’s new homes meet rigorous energy standards and codes. These were not as demanding in the past. These standards combine high-performance energy efficiency with state-of-the-art ventilation and air filtration. This results in year-round, comfort for the home owner, including higher indoor air quality.
5) Less Maintenance Needs on New Homes
Today’s new construction homes usually have open floor plans and high ceilings which reflect the way people live today. They are also made of innovative building products that require less care and upkeep. Also, the modern building systems and components are intended and engineered to work together.
6) Modern Safety Features
Safety is always an issue! A few examples of some modern home safety features include: State-of-the-art circuit breakers, electric garage door openers with infrared beams & high-efficiency furnaces and air conditioners that use the environmentally-friendly coolants.
Newly constructed homes offer the latest designs, style, comfort and quality. They can provide care-free living so you can enjoy your home, and not worry about replacements and repairs.
