Thinking of purchasing a home? Here are our top reasons why buying a new home construction is better than purchasing a used home.
1. Green Construction
Home builders today have become very aware that most people want energy efficient homes; especially in regards to new home construction. With a new home that has energy efficient appliances and other features, such as every crook and cranny being completely sealed and insulated, people can’t help but prefer a brand new home with energy savers compared to a home that will include high utility costs.
2. Current Building Codes
The Oklahoma area has experienced its share of tornadoes and with it has caused many building codes to be updated. New home owners have the advantage of a new home built to the most current code standards. Some new home builders will go above and beyond to ensure you have the exact home you desire.
Building a new home means you get the final say in what colors and materials are used in your new home. Granite is popular and widely available, not to mention very cost-effective. Appliances come in a variety of finishes including stainless steel or black and can make any space appear more sophisticated. Not to mention you get to pick out your energy-efficient appliances. You can make your new home look like a movie star’s home without breaking the bank.
4. Construction Warranty
Many builders will provide a warranty that can range from several years to ten years. This won’t be possible when buying a used home. You want to research all the builders you are considering for your new home construction to see what they provide. Check out their reputation and work history so you know exactly what you’re getting when hiring them.
5. The First to Use It
Just imagine walking into your home that has never had other footsteps walking through it. You get to be the first to enjoy every small thing from the beautiful view out your kitchen window or the simple benefit of being the first to use the toilet.
You might be able to buy a resale home for a lower price but the cost of upkeep later down the road could possibly exceed the cost of a brand new home. You don’t get the structure warranty and may have to replace appliances to create an energy efficient home or make repairs/upgrades to meet building code standards. More people are looking at building a new home and doing away with the time consuming, cost-hogging task of purchasing a resale home. New homes are in high demand right now and for a good reason.
