Eight Great Reasons to Purchase a New Home vs. a Pre-Owned Property:

Competitive pricing – new homes are less likely to be overpriced.  Once you compare square footage pricing and options costs you are in a better position to determine the real value of the home you’re considering buying. 

Warranties – You’ll receive a one-year warranty on the home itself and a warranty on major appliances including HVAC systems, appliances etc.  We also offer you a structural warranty which is underwritten by an insurance company.   

Modern finishes – you’ll have the benefit of a home with the latest makes and models of appliances and other state-of-the-art equipment.  There’s no need to update anything after you’ve moved in because it’s all NEW and chosen by you!!  With our purchasing power you may be able to upgrade items at a lower cost than buying on your own. 

Excellent financing – this can be a major obstacle in purchasing a home but when you work with a new home builder you get the benefit of our established relationships with mortgage partners who will work hard to secure your loan.  We’ve negotiated the best rates and also help you offset closing cost expenses by paying a portion of that for you! 

Energy efficiency saves you money  new homes are required to be built to meet exacting industry standards for energy efficiency.  Our materials adhere to strict guidelines and produce future savings for you. 

Lower maintenance – by using the latest construction materials and technology to build your home you know that it will be longer before you’ll have to replace or fix/repair things.  Certainly daily use and normal wear and tear need to be considered, but with proper maintenance of your new home you should benefit from years of deferred maintenance. 

Value Appreciation –Since new homes have an assured longer life over a pre-owned home, appraisals can generally be higher than on comparable existing homes.   

Floorplan options – you have a choice of several functional floorplans to fit your lifestyle needs and desires.  If it’s not an inventory/”spec” home, we can customize the home plan design to add/eliminate walls/rooms, update materials/finishes, and generally personalize your home. That would cost you thousands of dollars and weeks of time (and headache!) to do that in an existing home.
