A Few Of The Not So Obvious Benefits Of Buying A New Home

Image title

Buyers will often first choose to look at new homes, townhouses and condominiums before re-sale market properties.  Those working with new home buyers will learn during the building process what attracted the new homeowner to new construction.  It is consistent throughout the industry that floor plans, design choices, energy efficient living and warranties are just the beginning of what truly drives the homeowner to the new home choice.  Personalization of the home with colors, flooring, interior and exterior trim features, plumbing fixtures and tile just to   name a few will make the home feel like “their own” not like any other.  There are other underlying draws to a new home community that are not often discussed but clearly hold sway in the final new home or re-sale decision. 

Building a Community

When families move into a new home community whether it be in the beginning or the end  bonds and lasting friendships are built.  The feeling of being the new kid on the block doesn’t exist…everyone is the new kid.  Homebuilders enjoy hosting community get togethers so families in all building stages can get together to know one another. Communities with amenities are a great resource to get to know your neighbors especially if your joining the party later in the neighborhood construction phase.  Good reason to play a round of golf or sit by the pool.

Entertaining Floor Plans

Today’s new home floor plans make a great canvas for indoor entertaining. Larger rooms that flow into one another that allows the cook to be a part of the conversation and not shut in a kitchen that may comfortably hold four people.  High ceilings, large rooms and windows, windows, windows make for a comfortable and laid back entertaining home.

A New Home….A Clean Slate

Being the first to cook in a new kitchen, parking your car in a sparkling-clean garage, not worrying about existing landscaping and trying to make it suit your taste and needs are a few  new home benefits.  With the exploding popularity of outdoor kitchens, fireplace and patio areas the expense of expanding into outdoor living spaces is cut drastically when existing landscaping does not exist. Creating your home décor can become quite costly when you start replacing flooring, plumbing fixtures, tile, door hardware and painting are expenses you may want to account for.

Why Didn’t They Put An Outlet There?

Older home are wired much differently than the homes built by today’s National and Local Building Code Standards. Today’s electronics and their requirements offer expensive challenges to the re-sale home buyer.  Advanced technology is considered in today’s new homes. Items such as structured wiring, security systems and lighting that can be planned for in the Electrical Walk-thru stage during construction. Anyone that has ever lived in an older home has asked the question whether they were inside or out “Why Didn’t They Put An Outlet There”.  The new home builder has listened and they are delivering.
