Today’s homebuying market presents many opportunities to buy a resale home versus building your own home, but here are some reasons from Caliber Home Loans as to why buying new homes over resale is a better option:
One of the most exciting parts of buying a new home is being able to customize and personalize it to fit the unique needs and desires of you and your family. Throughout the process, homebuyers have the opportunity to select their homesite, floor plan, elevation and interior appointments such as cabinets, flooring, paint, countertops and so much more.
Another reason to buy new is the energy efficiency of new homes today. Current building codes require new homes be built to a certain standard of efficiency. To maintain a competitive edge, many builders are offering construction beyond the required standard.
Moreover, new homes require less maintenance and repairs than resale homes in addition to typically including some type of builder and product warranty. Although unlikely thanks to new construction and appliances, it is comforting to know that your new home is covered should the need arise.
When searching for the perfect home in the perfect community and location, keep a look out for homebuyer incentives such as money toward closing costs, included appliances or included upgrades and finishes within the home. This is an excellent way to save money in the homebuying process and include improvements that might not have been options before.
