1. Little or No Maintenance
It goes without saying that little maintenance (or none at all) is required when you purchase a new home versus a resale. That means you don’t have to worry about replacing the roof anytime soon or ripping down the outdated wallpaper. Buying a home is one of the most stressful events in one’s life. Think about how nice it would be to relax and enjoy your new home instead of working to make it the way you want it.
In addition to less maintenance, new homes come with warranties that protect your wallet if anything goes wrong with the roofing or structure of the property. They offer new homebuyers a level of comfort and security that might not be possible with a resale property.
3. Modern & Efficient
New homes are built to code with efficiency in mind and stocked with equally efficient and modern appliances. These modern conveniences help reduce utility bills. In addition, newer homes can accommodate advanced technologies with more outlets and sophisticated security systems and lighting plans.
The ability to personalize your home is one of the biggest perks of buying a new home rather than a resale. You can customize everything from the flooring and countertops to the placement of the bathrooms. The options are endless.
5. Bargaining Power
The ability to bargain with a builder tends to be easier than bargaining with an individual homeowner. Individual sellers have an emotional attachment to the property that can blind them to the true value of the home. Also, builders are often financially stable and have the capacity to absorb a loss on a sale. Think about it: a small loss over a large number of lots hurts a lot less than the same loss on one.
Plain and simple: IT’S NEW.
I think we can all agree there’s nothing better than owning something that’s never been used. When you purchase a new home, you will be the first to sleep in the bedrooms, cook in the kitchen, and lounge in the den. There’s just something wonderful about it.
