Getting a new home is always exciting, whether it’s a new build or just new-to-you. If you’re debating between new construction or resale, here are some reasons why new construction may be the best fit for you.
One of the best advantages of buying a new construction home is the fact that everything in the home is new! That means the chances of you having to replace big ticket items like the water heater, furnace or HVAC are slim. New appliances typically have pretty good warranties on them as well, so if something does go wrong, you generally won’t be held liable.
Along with having all new gadgets and gizmos in a new home, you also gain energy efficiency by purchasing new construction. The appliances and windows in new construction will be created for conserving energy. Energy efficient products means a more comfortable environment and more savings to you.
If you’re someone who likes to enjoy their weekends and is not into DIY projects, a new construction home may be perfect for you. When you buy new construction, you’re typically involved in the building and planning process – like picking out the floorplan and finishes. If you’ve selected what you want, you probably won’t have a big to-do list upon moving in and can spend your weekends relaxing and enjoying your new place.
If you’re thinking that a new construction home is going to be way out of your price range, think again! New construction homes often come with incentives from the builder that you won’t find with a resale home.
