New Construction

Benefits of New Construction


Competition among homebuilders makes new homes less likely to be overpriced. New homes are easy to compare with other new homes in the market equating value to value. The homes are the same age and options are declared up front with a price breakdown for comparative shopping.


New home buyers are assured of at least a one year warranty on the home itself, and in some cases two years on major appliances including air conditioning and heating systems.


Location. Location. Location. Being able to select just the right homesite is almost as important as choosing the proper home to fit the buyer's lifestyle. Developers and homebuilders offer a wide selection of sites.


Low maintenance is one of the most important features of the new homes being built today. New technology in building materials has made the homes of the 1990's virtually maintenance free, especially on the exterior. No longer does a homeowner have to worry about painting every 3-5 years.


A new home built today is required by law to meet stricter energy codes than homes built in the past when past codes don't exist or were much more lenient. Many homebuilders use materials that are designed to exceed the strict limits to produce future savings for the owner.


Appliance manufacturers introduce new models every year and homebuilders are able to offer the latest state-of-the-art equipment at the time of completing a new home. And, because the homebuilder buys for his entire production of new homes, his purchasing power can reduce the cost to the buyer.


Builders of new homes offer a wide variety of functional floorplans to fit your lifestyle. If it's not an inventory home, some builders also offer the opportunity to either eliminate or add rooms, upgrade materials, include special architecture and generally customize the home.


With a new home it is possible for the buyer to be the decorator before moving in. Choices of carpet, wallcoverings, paint color, lighting fixtures, window treatments, etc. enables the new home owners to live with their personal selections and not be restricted by the taste of previous owners.


Securing financing is ithe major obstacle to home ownership. Most homebuilders have done the legwork for you. They have researched the market and negotiated the best rates for specific types of housing. Plus, many builders include closing costs in the price of their homes.


These are just a few of the many considerations and concerns one should have when purchasing a new home. Call or e-mail me today so we can further discuss the benefits of owning a new home.
