Is it worth buying a new built home?
The new construction home creates more than value for the home buyer. It goes beyond status. It creates a bond that a used house can never give.
Did you ever like stopping at a red light? I had an experience many years ago when I drove off the car lot with my first new car. It was the first moment after negotiations, paperwork and dealing with a salesman I had to enjoy my new car. The new car smell, realizing I am the first owner of the car and in a way, I had arrived.
Now your new home smell is not that same experience. Why is that? First, many people buy new cars, but only a select few buy a new home. Most people experience is entering their new to them home only to find the previous owners’ smells.
But can you imagine turning the key for the first time and knowing you are the very first person living in the home? Every action turning that house into a home is yours. You are not remaking someone else home into yours. Your dreams are going to be the first dreams in the home. Your first meal will be the first time any one cooked there. What would you cook?
A new home is a clean slate. Parking your car in a sparkling-clean garage or being the first to cook a dinner in a brand-new kitchen is part of the appeal of a new construction home. You don’t have to repaint or strip wallpaper. You don’t have to deal with overgrown shrubs or ripping out previous landscaping.
Your new home is also safer. Newly constructed homes include fire safety features like in home fire sprinkler systems. In addition, hard-wired smoke detectors that run on the electricity and then have a battery backup for if the house power goes out.
New homes are more energy efficient because they are better insulated, have better windows and more efficient central heating and air conditioning systems. Also, they have a modern electric system. Not only way more outlets, but grf and main power are better designed.
The features of newly constructed homes will also hold up better than those of existing homes. The wear and tear of existing homes could also be hidden even from professional building inspectors. They don’t have x-ray vision.
Today's new homes are engineered specifically to minimize maintenance requirements. Who likes spending their weekends fixing worn out or broken old house issues? The least property upkeep there is, the better, for most people.
In addition, builders often agree to take care of the repair work that becomes necessary in your newly constructed home for at least the first year. And some builders use a third-party home warranty company to cover many issues up to five years. Not to stress about the air conditioner, hot water heater or kitchen appliances for five years is an amazing benefit of buying a new home.
New homes come with some of the design elements that today’s lifestyle demands: open, eat-in kitchens, walk-in closets, and large master baths to name a few. Wouldn’t you agree it would be a wise decision to buy a new home if you can?
