1. Newness (and warranties!)
First and foremost, everything in a new home is new. Floors, ceilings, windows, roof, siding… the whole nine yards. One huge benefit of this that few people consider is warranties. If anything breaks or doesn’t work exactly how it’s supposed to you are covered! Even appliances included in your home will probably come with several years worth of warranties.
Another added benefit of a new homes is efficiency. New appliances are made to use less energy than their predecessors, and you’ll likely also get better insulation. This translates into lower energy costs. In other words, you’ll probably spend less on electricity each month.
If you purchase the home during the pre-construction phase, it’s likely you’ll receive a great deal of flexibility in design. Most often you can customize appliances, paint colors, flooring, and other personal home features.
4. Discounts and Amenities
Builders have been known to offer incentives to potential buyers, some include paying closing costs, adding in free upgrades to appliances, or even free landscaping. These are some added bonuses that are hard to ignore.
