Benefits of Buying New

 Having a home built may be long process, but there are many benefits. Instead of dealing with bidding wars and low inventory, many home buyers are choosing to purchase new construction directly from a builder. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of buying new.


Home builders do a lot of research when deciding where to build a new home development. These new communities are typically found in upcoming markets where tremendous growth is expected. Typically these areas have plans for not just residential growth but also commercial and industrial growth that will stimulate the local economy.  

 Buying in a new build community will give you access to high-quality amenities. Schools and hospitals are also planned for in new communities, meaning these institutions will be of higher quality than some older ones in other parts of the city. Good schools increase property values and also help to keep crime low.  

 Energy Efficiency

One of the nicest perks of buying new is that builders are focusing on building homes that are energy efficient. New builds have energy star certified windows and appliances, which will save you money on energy. Older homes are much more expensive to heat and cool since they lack the new technology that is available today.

More Functional 

Have you noticed that older homes have smaller closets or lack a spot to put a large screen tv? You won’t have those problems with new construction. New build construction homes are built with today’s lifestyle trends in mind. Builders survey homeowners on what is most important to them and create floorplans that reflect those wants and needs

Easier Transaction
When you buy a new build, there isn’t as much back and forth regarding negotiations. The builder has its preferred lenders and title companies that work hand in hand to make the entire transaction easier than it would be with a resale home. Sometimes, you may even get a discount on closing costs or other incentives that would not be available if you were to buy a resale home. 
You Choose All The Finishings
One of the most fun parts of building new is your trip to the design center. Here you will get to choose colors, materials, and home finishes that reflect your style. Some of the items you’ll have the chance to choose from are flooring, countertops, paint colors, and lighting fixtures. This means once you move in, you won’t have to spend a lot of time and money replacing fixtures you don’t like. You won’t have to rip out horrible wallpaper or flooring – instead, you can just move your furniture in and enjoy!
