Whether you are purchasing your first home, your retirement home, or somewhere in between you may be wondering if you should be looking at new construction homes. New construction homes can offer you the option to customize your home from the location, to the floor plan, all the way to the unique finishes that you want to incorporate. Below are some of the unique benefits of purchasing a new construction home.
- You can help form a community: When moving into a new construction community you are helping to build the identity of that community from the very beginning. It is not often that you and many of your neighbors are all moving into a community at the same time and in its infancy. This provides a unique opportunity for you to form new friendships with your neighbors as you get to know this new neighborhood and location. Not to mention many new home communities have awesome amenities!
- Energy Efficiency and Reduced Maintenance costs: Newer homes across the board are built in a more energy efficient manner than older homes given updates to building codes encouraging energy efficiency. There are many components to new construction that help increase energy efficiency including insulations, heating, cooling, windows, appliances, and more. For example, energy efficient windows can prevent 25%-30% heat gain and loss than less efficient windows. You also have power over customizing and upgrading some options in your house leading to energy efficiency like smart thermostats or LED lighting. In addition to energy efficiency having brand-new-everything meaning less maintenance costs up front, new homes aren’t exempt from needing occasional repairs; having big ticket items be brand new means you likely won’t have to replace a roof or update plumbing in the first few years. This can give you time to save up for when those maintenance items will be needed in the future.
- Builder Warranty: Many builders offer a warranty on their new construction home, which in most cases is for a period of one year from the closing date. Having a period of time where your new home is under warranty can reduce stress and costs if something needs to be addressed.
- Customizability and Guidance through design decisions: Everyone knows that one of the perks of building new construction is making design decisions for your future home. Picking house plans, flooring styles and stains, and helping design your dream kitchen can be fun and exciting, but an additional perk of this customization with our agents and builders is that we can help walk you through those decisions offering advice and expertise in those areas. Some builders have their own design centers where you can see your choices in real life, while others partner with suppliers that can show you examples and help to match the items available to meet the style you are hoping for. This expertise and guidance is invaluable to bring your vision to life in your new home.
