Benefits of Buying a New Build Over an Existing Home


Benefits of Buying a New Build Home Over an Existing Home

Are you searching for a new home? Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or are upgrading to get more space, you will need to choose between buying an existing home or building a brand new one. As you may imagine, there are pros and cons to each kind of home. But if it is in your budget, you may want to lean towards a newer home over an older one. Let’s explore some reasons why new construction homes are better than existing homes.



No Bidding Wars on a New Build Home


When in your search for a new build home, one of the best benefits is that there is no need to enter a bidding war in order to secure your chosen property.  With new build homes, purchases come on a first-come, first-serve basis, so sellers cannot position multiple buyers to compete against each other, raising the price.  The price you see is the price you pay.


You Can Customize Every Aspect To Your Tastes

Ask anyone living in a custom-built home and they are likely to tell you that the ability to customize everything was a major deciding factor. When you build a brand-new home, your input isn’t limited to the floor plan or room layout. Your family can choose everything from the paint colours to the door hinges. Imagine having your pick of appliances, cabinets, flooring and trim in every room – that’s what new construction is all about.


Modern, Efficient and Convenient


A brand-new home means a home that is energy-efficient and built for convenience. Your home can be designed with as much advanced technology as you have in mind. Seamless Wi-Fi and other wireless connectivity for all your devices. A cutting-edge video security system to keep your family safe. Efficient heating and cooling that offers superior indoor air quality. And, of course, lower energy costs and a smaller carbon footprint.


If you are a fan of technology and the conveniences it can provide, a new construction home is a perfect choice.


Many Years of Trouble-Free Living


Another benefit of living in a new home is that everything around you is far less likely to fail over the next few years. Moving into an older home means worrying about the roof, the electrical wiring, the appliances and a whole host of other potential problems. In a new construction home, you will be surrounded by brand-new machinery that is built with the future in mind. Also, even if you do run into any issues with your home or appliances, it should all be under warranty.


As you can see, the scales are tipped when it comes to comparing brand-new construction with an older, dated home. If you’re ready to discuss making an upgrade to a new construction home, contact us today. Our professional real estate team is happy to help.
