5 Reasons to Buy New Construction vs. Resale

There are many benefits to forego a previously owned home and purchase new construction instead.

  1. Customization:  Choose the floor plan that fits your needs.  Tailor the design to your taste by choosing the flooring and paint colors you like best, along with the cabinetry finish and type of countertops.

  2. Go Green:  Many new homes come with energy-efficient windows and doors, and appliances that older homes do not.  Yes, retrofitting is possible in older homes, but it is costly.  You may also have the option to choose sustainable flooring and green landscaping systems.

  3. Fewer Repairs:  When you purchase an older home you may find that the carpet needs replacing or it needs new appliances, which will cost money you may not have budgeted.  Everything inside a new home is, well, new and you have the comfort of knowing that nothing in your home has been improperly used or damaged.

  4. Safety and Security:  New homes use flame retardant carpet and insulation and are required to have hard-wired smoke detectors (these run on the home’s electricity and have a battery backup should the home lose electricity). Many new homes also come with security systems.

  5. More Financing Options & Perks:  Many new home builders will offer buying incentives, like materials or appliance upgrade or money towards closing costs.  There are even some communities that will offer a special perk or discount if you buy within a certain timeframe.

Buying a new home means buying a worry-free home, especially for those who serve in the military.  Servicemembers can go on deployment knowing their loved ones won’t have to worry about home repairs or service calls.
