You’ve fixed up your credit, found the area you’d like to live in, but now you face the biggest question of all: “Should I buy an old house or a brand new home?” Whether you’re buying your first home, a second home, or a retirement home, choosing a new one over an existing or used home is a smart move. Keep reading for five reasons why you should buy a new-construction home.
5 Reasons to Buy a New Home
1) Old Homes Have Old Problems
A new home is yours and yours alone. You won’t have to worry about existing, potential, or hidden problems, which lead to additional costs for repairs. Plus, new homes usually come with warranties and other protections.
2) Old Homes Have Old Design
One of the exciting things about buying a new home is that everything is brand new, from the design of the home, to the heating/cooling system, the building materials used, and the fixtures and appliances. You don’t end up settling with someone else’s old style and outdated features, or having to spend more money to update everything.
3) New Homes Offer Customization Opportunities
When you buy a used home, you’re living in someone else’s dream home. With a new home, you can customize your home to reflect your style. At Elite Homes, we have a full-service design center to assist customers with selections for their homes — so you can express yourself with special touches that’ll make your dream home truly unique.
4) With a New Home, You Know the Builder
When you buy new, you know who the builder is and you can research the company to make sure you’re comfortable with their standards and quality of workmanship. With Elite Homes, you can take comfort in knowing your home is built strong and backed by a reputable builder. We use state-of-the-art construction techniques and dependable, quality contractors. Tight supervision and a commitment to excellence have helped Elite Homes earn an impeccable reputation and hundreds of satisfied customers.
5) New Homes Have Better Re-Sale Value
One final thing to consider: new homes generally have better re-sale value, because they are newer and nicer. So you get the most for your money, if or when you decide to sell.
