Why Choose A New Home Build?
When it comes to buying your house, there are so many factors to consider. One of those factors is if you go with a new home, or buy something older in a well established neighborhood. There are pros and cons to both options, but let’s take a look at why choosing a new home build might be the best possible choice for you and your family.
One of the first reasons has to do with the fact that a new home build is…well, new. When you buy an older home you always have to take into consideration the possibility that you might have some large repairs or maintenance in your near future. Roofs only last for so long. Older windows are not created as energy efficient so you might have a bunch of window replacement to do shorty after moving in. And general wear and tear through the many years and many homeowners means makes for minor repairs and upgrades in older homes. With a new home, you know that you won’t have any major repairs to do in the near future. It’s also easier to maintain a new home, which means you’ll be doing repairs and upkeep a lot less often in a new home.
Another big factor to consider is the fact that we have made a LOT of advances when it comes to green technologies in building new homes. New homes are built to be energy efficient, which means both that you pay less in your energy bills each month, and also that it reduces the total impact on our earth. Not only that, but many builders are adopting sustainable building techniques that are much better for our earth. We can all do our part when it comes to creating a more sustainable world.
You know that saying, “they don’t build them like they used to”? Well, that is incredibly true, and it’s an incredibly GOOD thing. We’ve learned a lot over the years and we’ve gotten a lot safer in the construction of homes. There are some old homes that have wiring that we no longer consider standard practice when building a home because we know better and safer ways now. New homes are being built to a higher standard of quality these days. Builders are upping their game and the building codes that they have to follow are also being upped as we learn more and more about the construction industry.
New homes are also now being built with livability in mind. We now know what the ideal set up is for kitchens. We no longer stick laundry, a chore that needs to be done at least once a week, down in the basement where it’s inconvenient to lug heavy laundry baskets down and back up. We no longer build houses with lots of tiny rooms and nooks and crannies because we know that open concept gives you a ton of air and light and allows you to still be connected with your family while you make dinner or allows you to entertain people without being cut off from the fun while you’re in the kitchen getting drinks and food.
Lastly, while there is something very charming and “I think I might find a secret entrance to Narnia” in older homes, nothing quite compares to incredible aesthetics of new home builds. Luxury and high end finishes no longer cost you an arm and a leg. Plus, suppliers are finding durable and beautiful alternatives to things like marble countertops and hardwood flooring, which means that builders are able to create beautiful homes at a lower cost to the buyer. With new homes you really can have durability and beauty all within your budget.
