Searching for a new home is an exciting process, and when you’re exploring new construction, the possibilities are endless. Whether you’re looking to buy your first home or your dream home, don’t make a move without checking out how a new home can make your life better. So, what does buying new really get you?
FLOOR PLAN & LAYOUT
By buying or building new, you’re able to get your home just the way you want it. You can explore many different floor plans to find the one that fits with your lifestyle and make layout decisions that impact your daily living. The ability to make these choices to ensure your home is compatible with your lifestyle will shape your experience in your home for years to come.
COMFORT & HEALTH
Indoor air quality is important to maintaining your family’s health. New homes are built to incorporate the latest in building science, so they’re simply better at keeping the air clean and circulating properly.
New homes are tighter and better insulated than older homes, ensuring your heating and cooling costs are lower. Many are even independently energy tested by a RESNET rater and provide a Green Path Home Performance Report to help you compare expected energy use between homes.
MAINTENANCE & WARRANTIES
An older home likely has older products that will soon need replacing. New means you have plenty of time before your home, appliances, fixtures, and finishes start showing wear. And your new home is under warranty, assuring you that if there is a defect, it will be corrected.
New homes boast the latest generation of products like thermostats, security systems, appliances, theater equipment, and lighting—most designed specifically to connect via smart home technology. They’re created with today’s consumer in mind and the technology incorporated can help you live more efficiently.
Peace of mind in your home is important. With today’s technology and building codes, a new home provides more safety than ever for your family. Safety features such as interconnected smoke detectors, passive and active radon mitigation systems, and closed combustion appliances are built right into every new home and inspected by your city’s building official.
IT’S ALL NEW
There really is something magical about stepping into your new home for the first time. Fresh carpets, pristinely painted walls, unmarred countertops, unstained garage floors … everything in your new home is shiny, clean, and, since you picked them out, the finishes reflect your style.
