The Right Home, Right Now
Homeowners often wonder what the benefits of building a new home are. We have complied a list of the prominent reasons to build a new home.
The 7 best reasons to build a new home:
By building a new home, you have full control to get exactly what you want. Instead of settling for an existing house that comes close to your desires, you choose a house plan that fits your lifestyle exactly while enhancing it with products and color choices that fit your taste. Building from a set of house plans ensures both customization as well as reliability, but allows for your choices in terms of interior décor to meet your exact needs. You can create your dream home from foundation to roof, placing your own unique touches to make it your home.
2. Quality of Life
When you build a new home it allows you to create what you want all at once, preventing regular updates. You have the time to enjoy the benefits of your new home rather than spending weekends and time off on constant remodeling projects.
3. Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings
New homes are far more energy efficient than homes built just five years ago. Versus homes built ten or 20 years ago, its game over, advantage new. Why settle for drafty, energy-wasting single-pane windows in a used home? New homes offer double windows. Special window coatings and inert gases between the layers of glass are often available, saving you even more energy and money in both heating and cooling season.
High-performance HVAC equipment and superior insulation allow for less energy consumption and a more comfortable home.
4. New Technology
It can cost big bucks to retrofit new technology into an older home. Having your home pre-wired for technology and products such as a high tech sound system and security system significantly reduces the difficulty in installation, and therefore reduces the cost.
5. Safety and Hidden Problems
When you purchase an older home built by someone else, there are sometimes hidden problems. Trying to find the root cause can be a challenge if issues are concealed within walls or ceilings.
Likewise, older homes can have hazards such as asbestos, lead-based paint, leaking gas lines or faulty wiring.
So when you build a new home, you have the advantage of seeing how things are put together and rest easy that the home meets the latest codes and safety standards. This allows a better understanding of how homes function and may help to diagnose future problems.
6. Low Maintenance
Building a new home will cut down on repairs in the short term. In the first few years, maintenance and general repairs will usually be minimal. There are some new building products that come with reduced maintenance requirements and extended warranties, such as roofing, siding and exterior trim.
7. Financing and Appreciating Values
Building a new home is still historically a great investment. Interest rates are still at record lows, thus now is great time to finance a new home. Inaddtion, new homes appreciate rapidly.
