ADVANTAGES OF BUYING A NEW HOME
Many builders have the ability to allow the buyer to make custom changes to the floorplan, allowing you add several personal touches to your home .. paint colors, finishes, flooring, appliance packages, lighting, etc. Thus creating a living space specifically tailored to suit your individual tastes. Do you prefer waterfront? Or a private tropical garden backyard? Choosing the perfect lot for your dream home is a huge advantage.
Purchasing early during the construction process allows you to lock in lower pricing. This allows you to place yourself in a position to make a considerable return on your investment. As the project sells, the builder has a schedule of price increases, so buying early is key. Builder’s are also able to provide several different types of concessions to lock in a sale. Providing you with free custom upgrades, landscaping, closing costs, etc.
Save your money! You are able to save significantly on your energy bills due to smarter more-connected homes that are ultra-energy efficient by using the latest innovative material and building systems on the market today (stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters, furnaces, air conditioning units, etc.). Several builders now are prewiring homes for optional solar panels to be added during your customization process as well!
Open floorplans! Custom designed gourmet kitchens that are open to your grand living space. 12′ or higher ceilings with floor to ceiling windows allowing in more natural light. Larger spa-like bathrooms. Larger bedrooms and walk-in closets, etc. Say goodbye to tiny rooms with low ceilings and kitchens hidden in the back of the home.
The really great thing about buying a brand new preconstruction home is that the quality of the products now being installed today are designed to wear longer, are considerably more durable and last much longer, which means fewer repairs. Builder’s are also engineering homes to minimize maintenance requirements by using materials designed to be more energy efficient without the hassle of regular maintenance.
NEW HOME WARRANTY
Builder’s provide warranties on their new homes. Some are one-year, two-year, five-year or 20-year warranties that cover workmanship, materials and labor, garage doors, heating and air, plumbing and electrical, light fixtures, roofing, structural elements, and more. Sometimes the warranty fee is paid by the builder or you can buy your own warranty for a few hundred dollars.
