If your New Year’s resolution is to be in a new home in 2015, Faith Homes has 10 tips why now is the time to make your move.
Much like the rest of the real estate industry, new home construction is on the rise! Are you a new home buyer looking to make your dream home a reality? Are you a real estate agent who sells or even specializes in new builds?
Below is a list of the top 10 reasons for home buyers to buy a brand new house.
1. Design the home of your dreams
When you elect to buy a home that hasn’t been built yet, you get to enjoy the process of designing your dream home. This includes being able to pick the floor plan that’s exactly right for you. Want all the bedrooms upstairs? Or a master suite downstairs? Done. There’s no need to make due when you can start with something that’s just right instead.
2. Enjoy your place from the get-go
Many times, when you move into an existing home there will be something you want to replace or remodel right away, like old fixtures or worn carpet or even just a paint color that’s not your taste. New homes don’t come with this instant to-do list, so you can spend your time enjoying your home… rather than fixing it up.
3. Sleep soundly (and under warranty)
While an older home will usually have components of various ages—some of which may need replacing not long after you move in—a new home has brand new everything and will be under warranty from roof to floor.
4. Go high performance, save money
New homes allow you to make money-saving, environmentally friendly choices from the start, instead of having to retrofit. You can choose sustainable flooring options, energy-efficient appliances, green landscaping systems and more. Additionally, new homes often have better insulation, doors and windows that will save you money on heating and cooling costs.
5. Slash maintenance costs
Today’s new homes are built to minimize maintenance, employing the latest, most durable products and techniques that will require less upkeep in the long run.
6. Feel safe and secure
Your new home is guaranteed to be up to the latest safety codes right from the start. In addition, newly constructed properties often boast safety features, like hard-wired smoke detectors and state-of-the-art circuit breakers, not found in older homes.
7. Benefit from community amenities
If you are considering a home in a planned community, don’t discount the value of community amenities. Many communities now include pools, fitness centers and other recreation areas that will add to your experience in your new home.
8. Luxuriate in all new appliances
Brand new oven, brand new refrigerator, brand new washing machine, brand new dishwasher… we could go on and on. Sometimes there’s just nothing better than knowing that your garbage disposal has never been used (and misused) before.
9. Discover more financing options
New home developers often have access to their own mortgage or financing options, giving you more lending choices overall. You may also encounter developing communities that are offering a discount special or price perk if you move within a certain time frame.
