The benefits of buying a newly-built home over buying a pre-owned home can be extensive

As new communities pop up, new home builders fill the lots with beautiful, new custom-designed homes. Many of these communities are master-planned offering residents the finest in amenities and options money can buy. While pre-owned homes can provide a sense of charm, it usually takes a lot of work and money to get these homes move-in ready. It is highly more lucrative to invest in a brand new home. Some of the benefits of buying a new home include:

  • Ability to customize — With many custom home builders, you have the power to choose features such as cabinet and carpet colors, flooring and counter materials and even the home layout. Other important features include choosing the lot you prefer or picking the exterior paint color to tailor the home to your individual tastes and needs.
  • Current code enforcement — Today’s homes are built with a higher energy efficiency rating than the homes of 30 years past. Green energy options, solar paneling and tighter sealants lend themselves to lower energy bills equating to less consumption per house. Fire safety is important, and all new homes are required to have hard-wired smoke detectors powered by electricity, unlike the traditional battery-operated types in pre-owned homes, which may fail if not properly maintained.
  • Less maintenance and repairs — Your new home is built with all new materials that have not experienced the wear and tear of a pre-owned home. The carpets and paint are fresh, the roof is new and the walls are solid. With new homes engineered to require less maintenance, you will find a greater return on your investment when you buy new.
  • Warranties and financing — Many new homes come with warranties guaranteeing any repair work, if needed, within the first year. Even with a thorough inspection, you may find leaks and defects in a pre-owned home, which you, as the home owner, will be responsible to pay for. Home builders also offer a variety of perks, directly to buyers, through their in-house financing department. These deals are only available through the builder.
