There are lots of advantages to buying a newly-constructed home versus an older home. Why inherit a previous homeowner’s tastes, lifestyle, and maintenance problems, when you can choose a NEW HOME that is uniquely yours? Here are just a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy when you buy new.

Financial Benefits

  • Avoid Unexpected and Costly Repairs
    When you buy a new home, all the components, appliances and systems are new. Most will come with a warranty, providing you with freedom from unforeseen and expensive repairs that can deplete your savings.
  • High Buying Power and Tax Benefits
    At new home communities, you can frequently choose from low or no down payment financing options like FHA or VA loans or conventional lending programs. Each can be at incredibly low interest rates, giving you the most buying power. Combine that with the availability of mortgage interest tax deductions, you might find that owning a new home is less than paying rent!
  • Lower Monthly Expenses
    New homes include countless, often hidden, features that result in saving you money every month. Expect to pay lower insurance bills when your new home has a fire suppression system, lower monthly energy bills with radiant barrier sheathing, whole house fans, a solar system and new energy saving appliances, and likely lower water bills with tank-less water heaters and drought-tolerant landscaping.

Enhanced Lifestyle

  • Choices! Location, Floorplan and Product Type
    Now more than ever, your home style and location, should reflect you, your personality and your daily lifestyle. Today’s homebuyers realize that bigger homes does mean a better lifestyle. No matter if your preference is a turnkey, low maintenance townhome, a spacious 5 bedroom single-level home, or somewhere in between, there is a new home that is just right for you. Choosing the right home sustains the health and well being of your family.
  • Home Conveniences (aka Easier Living)
    Many new home features enhance (effortlessly enhance) your day to day living and reduce stress. Things like solid surface counter tops that are easy to (sanitize) wipe down (no more grout cleaning), kitchens that house built-in recycle bins and showcase prep-islands with dining bars making meals more fun, and technologies such as visual doorbells and whole house wiring that let’s everyone be “connected” at once, are just a few things that make life a little more enjoyable.
  • Personal Connection
    Being a “founding member” of a brand-new community is one of the built-in benefits of many new homes. When families move in to a new neighborhood all at the same time, often lasting bonds of friendship and neighborliness are formed right away. Nobody is the “new kid on the block,” and many home builders host community block parties in new developments to help owners meet and connect.

Energy Efficiency

  • Less Stress on The Ocean
    Most new home communities will include some type of system within it’s boundaries that will filter water-run off before going into the storm drain. These systems help to control water pollution.
  • Higher Efficiencies
    New homes tend to have a tighter-sealed building envelope that helps prevent conditioned air—cool air in the summer, warm air in the winter—from escaping. This can be a huge cost savings for the new home buyer. Think higher-efficiency insulation, doors and windows.
  • Greener Ingredients
    Both included features and design/upgrade options for your new home will offer a bevy of environmentally friendly materials to choose from. Consider choices like recycled glass backsplashes and quartz countertops. New homes include LED technology not only bring down your energy bills, but are also more environmentally friendly when compared to incandescent bulbs and compact fluorescent lights (CFLs). As LED bulbs consume less power per unit (lumen) of light emitted. This reduces greenhouse emissions from power plants.

Design Flexibility

  • Interiors Styled for YOU
    You live on the inside of your home! It can be impossible to find a used home that has interior selections that are perfect for you, and the cost of changing out and remodeling a home can be budget-busting. Many new homes offer you an array of choices for cabinetry, countertop and flooring finishes so that your new home suits your taste!
  • Configured for You / Your Family's Needs
    Need an at-home office or a suite for your in-laws? Many new home floorplans offer flex-spaces to meet the rising need and desire for homes to accommodate extended family members and work duties. Frequently bedrooms can become lofts to add more common space or study area or lofts can become offices – all dependent upon your need.
  • Awesomesauce Home Enhancements
    Today’s new home modern floorplans and personalization opportunities can present unimaged benefits to include in your new home! How about a private elevator or a built-in barbeque? Ever consider a second dishwasher or a separate prep kitchen? New home builders will frequently provide possibilities for personalization of your new home that were not even on your radar! Fortunately, new home personalization teams are usually in place to walk you through your choices, allowing you to make your new home – uniquely yours!
