Reasons to Choose a New Construction Home

mulberry_thumbnailIf you are looking for a new home, you may be considering whether to invest in an older home or purchase new construction.   Here are some reasons why new construction is the optimal choice for your new home!

Everything is under warranty. This includes the big-ticket items such as the roof, furnace, air conditioner, and water heater, as well as all of the appliances, countertops, and other indoor features. You should be able to enjoy years of repair-free living before any of these items need major maintenance.

New homes are much more energy-efficient than older construction. Features such as double- or triple-paned windows and thick attic insulation keep the house at a more steady temperature and save you big bucks on heating and cooling.

New homes provide far more safety features, such as advanced circuit breakers, electric garage doors with infrared beams, and HVAC systems with environmentally-friendly coolants.

New construction allows you to customize your home to fit your family’s lifestyle and needs. Choose the perfect layout, your favorite flooring, and the paint colors that complement your furniture!

New homes are typically easier to re-sell. Whether you plan to stay in your home for just a few years or ten years, buyers are attracted to newer homes with less need for renovation.

New communities feature amenities that are harder to find in older neighborhoods. Swimming pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, clubhouses, and more are just a short walk from your house!
