Why buying a New Home might work better for you?

Why buying a New Home might work better for you?

. Your Home your style
When shopping among existing homes, buyers have to take the previous owners’ style into consideration. Do you pay even more to redecorate or do you make do with someone else’s choices? A new home, however, provides you with numerous design, color and material options. Having the luxury to tailor a home to your tastes can be one of the greatest features of buying a new home.
. New Home Warranties
New home buyers are assured at least a one-year warranty on the home itself and, in some cases, components such as major appliances and windows may have further coverage periods provided by their manufacturers. And in California, homebuilders are required to guarantee the home to be free of structural defects for a full 10 years! That means new home buyers are assured quality construction in their new homes! There’s no second-guessing the work a previous owner might have done (or not done!).

. Home Location Within a Community
Location, location, location. Not only do new home buyers get to choose which beautiful new home community they want to live in, they also get to select their individual unit or home site within that community. Would you prefer your bedroom get morning sun or afternoon sun? Would you prefer to live near the park or on a cul-de-sac?

. Convenient Financing
In today’s market, securing financing for home ownership can be tedious and stressful. Builders usually simplify this process by partnering with lenders in order to get the most competitive rates and appropriate financing package for you.

. Low Maintenance
Why worry about upgrading or constantly maintaining your home if you don’t have to? Most reputable Builders use the latest and greatest materials that technology can offer. The result? New homes are virtually maintenance-free for many years.

. Floor Plans
Never thought about the convenience of modern floor plans? Take a tour of many existing homes and you’ll find bad layouts and wasted or unusable space. New home buyers, however, have a variety of modern layouts and styles to choose from that are suitable to any family.

. Energy Efficiency
New homebuilders are required by law to meet stricter energy codes than in the past, which benefits YOU, the consumer. This is an enormous cost-saving benefit when considering the costs of fuel and energy today. Many existing homes were built when energy codes were either more lenient or nonexistent.

. Modern Appliances
Appliance manufacturers introduce new models every year and homebuilders are able to offer the latest state-of-the-art equipment at the time of completing a new home. And, because Builders buy for the entire production of new home, the purchasing power often reduces the buyers’ costs.

. Safer Homes
New homebuilders are required by law to meet stricter safety and building codes than in the past, which benefits YOU, the consumer. Many existing homes were built when safety codes were either more lenient or nonexistent. This brings an enormous piece of mind for you and your family.

. Appreciation
The typical home needs remodeling after 25-30 years. Since new homes have an assured longer life, appraisals are generally higher than on comparable existing homes. That means new homes will likely sell for a higher value in the future.

. Savings & Insights
The REBATE” in your pocket is actually equivalent to paying a lower purchase price. When you have me on your side you’ll get my opinion on Builder’s construction tracks, current real estate trends, popular floor plans, market situation in the area, etc… which might be  even more beneficial to you and your family right now and in the future.


  1. The developers plan these around the house, so it will be easier to find the facilities they need residents. Close to a spa, gym, health centers and other institutions like most buyers for obvious reasons.

  2. Location is an important factor. You can choose a house in a community that’s still under development. If you get a house near a commercial area that’s still being expanded and developed, you can buy the lot at a much lower cost. As the industry around it grows, the lot raises its market value.

  3. “Your home your style” – I agree! You can definitely design your home with a more personal touch, whether you pay someone to do it for you or you do it on your own. Well, you can also do it with already-built homes, but newly constructed ones offer much more opportunities to make your home all “yours.”

  4. Brendan has a point! Location is an important factor. It’s also good to find a place where you can have peace and quiet and away from the rush of the big cities, and where you can see your family making fun memories.
