7 Reasons to Buy a New-Build Home

Thinking of purchasing a new-build home in Jordan Ranch? You aren’t alone. According to the National Association of Home Builders, interest in buying a new-construction home rose 27 percent last year. Why? Here are seven reasons.

You Have Options

An existing home may meet some of your requirements, but probably not all of them. You may have to update appliances, flooring and countertops. Buying a new-construction home can be tailored to fit your needs. You choose the floor plan as well as any upgrades and structural options you desire. Your builder is ready, willing and able to work with you, so you get your home, your way.

You Can Go with the Flow

Older homes don’t make entertaining easy. Often the kitchen is walled off from the dining room which is walled off from the family room. Slightly newer homes might have the kitchen open to a breakfast nook, but that won’t comfortably host the little league pizza party. New homes feature large, open floor plans that flow into the kitchen, dining area and family room. Good flow means great parties. 

New Homes are Smarter

New construction homes are wired for the 21st century. Most feature CAT 6 wiring for faster internet speeds. These days many builders include a home automation system as standard. Even if they don’t, they make sure you have enough electrical outlets to charge your smartphones and tablets.

A Healthier You

New-build homes are healthier for your family. That’s because of advances in building technology. New homes are built with eco-friendly materials, reducing the number of toxic chemicals you could be exposed to. Better HVAC systems mean cleaner indoor air. Better moisture control systems lessen your exposure to mold and mildew. 

Your Energy Bills Will Be Lower

New-build homes are more energy-efficient. That’s due to better building materials and techniques. You get better-insulated walls and ceilings, a better HVAC system, Energy Star appliances and more. Your new home also will have been inspected by a third party to ensure it meets current energy standards and requirements. Ultimately, buying a new home could save you more money than buying an older home. 

It’s Under Warranty

Purchase an older home and you will be on the hook if anything goes wrong. New construction home is under warranty. If something in your home is damaged, it will be repaired or replaced as long as it is under warranty. 

Intangible Benefits

Not all benefits are visible. Most new homes are built in new master-planned communities — or at least new neighborhoods in existing ones. When families move into a neighborhood at the same time, they often form lasting friendships. You also have access to modern lifestyle amenities that make living in your new community fun.
