Advantages of Buying a New Home
Buying a new home has many advantages in today’s market versus buying a previously owned home. By comparing the two you will see why buying new will save you time, worry, and most importantly money.
Fresh and New
The main advantage of buying new is you’ll be the very first family to live in your home. All the features and fixtures will be new, so you won’t have to worry about having that ‘already lived in’ feel in your new home.
Built for You
Our floorplans and designs are built for how people live today. Our homes are built with the newest technology and construction. We keep up with the trends and lifestyle needs of today’s buyer. Plus, your home is built with you in mind. When you build a new home, you can pick the features and fixtures that you want to suit your lifestyle. In the end, you get to build a home that is all about you.
New homes tend to be easier to buy than resale homes, as home builders will work with you every step of the way to make sure you have the help you need.
When buying new, you have two options – buying a quick move-in home or buying a pre-sale home where you get to build it to your specifications.
When buying a quick move-in home (often referred to as an inventory home), it’s already complete and is ready for you to move in, which means it’s ready when you are. When you compare that to buying an existing home, you will have to work out a move-in date with the seller which could postpone your move-in date.
Buying a pre-sale home is when you work with the home builder to build the home from the ground up. You can pick your land, pick your home type and select all of the interior features that fit your taste so it suits your lifestyle. That’s something you just can’t do when buying a used home.
Lower Cost of Ownership
We build our homes to the strictest codes, which means we pass along the highest quality home that will last a lifetime, giving you overall value. When you purchase a new home, you can choose materials that complement your heating and air system to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in winter. You can also choose more energy-efficient appliances that consume less energy, helping you save money in the long run with lower energy and water bills, which directly relates to a lower ongoing cost of ownership. You may also be able to claim tax breaks due to the energy-efficient appliances and fixtures in your new home.
Modern Features and Fixtures
Another advantage of buying new is that you can expect your new home to have all the latest features and fixtures. Your new home will come with some of the following items: modern countertops, brand new cabinets, updated appliances and other modern finishes. An older home, on the other hand, may have outdated appliances and finishes, which can be costly to update and upgrade.
We provide you easy financing solutions and low rates. Older homes usually come with a higher rate and can sometimes be more difficult to finance.
Your new home will come with warranties to protect you from outdated mechanicals or other structural issues that a previously owned home might have.
We help you through the process and our valued team of professionals helps you to manage your new home buying process. This is very important to a first-time homebuyer.
Buying an older home can leave you with unanswered question on the history of the home, which can lead to more money out of your pocket.
Our communities are developed to give you not only a beautiful home but also a well-designed community. We put a lot of time into our community amenities, locations, schools, nearby entertainment and outdoor living. You won’t find a better community than a Smith Douglas community. Most older neighborhoods do not provide the perfectly maintained community and you are probably less likely to find amenities.
