Choices, choices. We love lots of choices but when it comes to buying a home there are really only two — an existing home or a brand-spanking new one. There are pros and cons to each, but honestly, there is nothing like that new home smell.
There are other reasons to buy new. Here are our top ones:
Your Home, Your Way
When you look at an existing home, you are looking at other people’s choices. Someone else chose that hard-to-clean countertop. And what’s with that garage turned into a rec room? A new home allows you to make choices that work with your style and your lifestyle. You choose the floor plan, flooring, paint, cabinets and fixtures. Want a media room? Done. Need a home office? Nothing easier. Your builder is ready, willing and able to work with you so you get your home, your way.
Now That’s Entertaining
Carved up into separate small rooms, older homes don’t exactly allow for easy flow. New homes boast spacious layouts with kitchens open to family rooms and casual dining areas. So, new homes are ready to host gatherings as small as your book club or as large as your ugly sweater holiday party without having to move the furniture around.
Wired for the 21stCentury
Technology has moved along at such a rapid pace that even homes built five years ago don’t always have the wiring necessary to run today’s smart homes. And good luck finding enough electrical outlets to charge your smartphones and tablets. New homebuilders anticipate your technology needs and include them in their designs.
What You Don’t See
New appliances might seem like a perk of owning a new home but did you know they actually save you money? Due to advances in building science and stricter building codes, new homes are now 20 percent more efficient than homes built even five years ago. Ultimately, buying a new home could save you more money than buying an older, existing home.
Building a Community
Some new home benefits are more intangible. If you purchase a new home, you are probably purchasing it in a new community. When families move into a neighborhood at the same time, they often form lasting friendships.
