There was a time, not too long ago, that model and new construction homes were significantly more expensive than buying an existing home. But times have changed and that’s not always true these days. The time investment alone on building or buying a new construction home was enough to drive homebuyers away. However, today’s streamlined building process combined with easier access to construction loans have newly built home sales soaring. Keep reading to learn more advantages of buying a new construction home.
Less Maintenance and Fewer Repairs
New construction homes are built to last, meaning they require little to no maintenance when you compare it to resale homes. Because you have the option to choose the materials used to build your home, maintenance is further minimized. Costly items like heating and cooling systems, plumbing, roofs, and siding will not likely need to be replaced for 10-20 years.
Starting from scratch with a new home means you’re able to customize everything to fit your personality and lifestyle. Instead of trying to fit into an existing home, or completely remodeling it, new homes are move-in ready, designed to your exact specifications. Appliances are built-in, wired networking systems are installed, and storage space is abundant. Technological advances have made homes more convenient today than ever before.
Owners of existing homes spend thousands upon thousands of dollars to make energy-efficient upgrades. When you choose to build a new home, you can implement those products from the beginning. Today’s builders pride themselves on building green homes using quality material and achieving high energy ratings. Adding Energy Star appliances, solar panels, and dual-pane windows provide utility bill savings from the start.
High Building Standards
Building codes have come a long way in the last few decades. Many older homes were built during a lax period, some houses actually date back to a time when there were little to no building codes. Today’s builders are held to a high standard on everything from proper insulation in walls and attics to fire safety measures like carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
