One of the biggest decisions that today’s homebuyers have to make is whether to buy a newly constructed house or a preexisting one. At W. B. Homes, we’re here to help make that decision easier for you. If you’re leaning towards a new construction but still aren’t completely sure, maybe some of these reasons will help convince you. Here are some of the main benefits of buying a new home that you just don’t get with an older one.
A New Home Doesn’t Need Any Work
With older homes, you never fully know what you’re walking into. Even if it’s not necessarily a “fixer-upper,” there’s bound to be at least something you want to change. Maybe the carpets need to be replaced, or the kitchen is outdated. But with a newly built house, everything is already updated for you. Nothing is worn down. Nothing needs work. Everything is in pristine condition and usually backed by a warranty. You don’t have to worry about the headache of added renovation stress or expenses. Plus, it means you can feel happy and comfortable in your new house from day one.
The Neighborhood Is Fresh and New
Most new homes are going up in new neighborhoods. So not only do you get to live in a brand-new house, but you get to drive on brand-new streets (no potholes!), take advantage of newly installed utilities, and enjoy beautifully manicured landscapes. And these up-and-coming neighborhoods are filled with homeowners just like you, who are excited about a fresh start. Often, these neighborhoods even come with fun amenities, too, like walking trails and playgrounds for the kids, and tend to be safe and welcoming for all.
Tons of New Home Perks
In a previous blog post, we talked about how new homes are better than older ones because they have energy-efficient appliances, require minimal maintenance, and allow you to customize. All of that is still true, but there are more perks to newly built houses you may not have considered, including:
- Modern floor plans to help you live and entertain guests more comfortably
- Protection of new home warranties for added peace of mind
- A clean slate knowing you’re the very first one to live there
- Better wiring with more outlets
- Ability to accommodate advanced technology, like sophisticated home security systems
New House Doesn’t Always Mean You Have to Build
One of the best parts about purchasing a new home is that you get to build your own and customize it along the way. But, that’s not the only way to get into a new home. Contractors often offer quick move-in ready homes, too. If you’d rather skip the building process or you simply need to move in soon, ask your contractor if there are any pre-built homes available. These houses are still new – they’re just waiting for someone like you to come along and buy them.
