Commemorated by the entire home building industry, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) dedicates the entire month of April as New Homes Month. Perfectly timed, the spring season is packed with families searching for their dream home and first-time buyers ready to enter the market. Throughout April, the NAHB educates and spreads awareness of the increasing benefits of buying a new construction home.
During the last two years spent conducting life from within the home, many homeowners and renters found the spaces they inhabited did not meet their needs. Outdoor living spiked in popularity, and as Millennials entered the homebuying market, new styles and design trends emerged.
While the advantages increase daily, the NAHB shares valuable insight and a few benefits of purchasing new home construction!
Purposeful Floor Plans
As outdoor living and mindful spaces increase in popularity, today’s home plans are changing just as quickly! New construction homes showcase floor plans that directly reflect the needs of today’s homebuyers. Over the last two years, home builders began to include home offices, outdoor patios, open layouts and high ceilings in floor plans to meet the needs of post-pandemic homebuyers.
Updated and Secure Wiring
Today’s homeowners can rest easy knowing that their new construction home was constructed with updated, secure wiring that accommodates state-of-the-art appliances, smartphones and new technology. Plus, some outlets even have USB charging ports now! Older homes contain outdated wiring that is not compatible with today’s updated technology. The costs of replacing wiring swiftly add up, making new construction the savvy choice for new homebuyers.
With green building on the rise, one of the top items on a homebuyer’s wish is energy-efficient features that promote sustainable living. New construction homes include energy-efficient elements designed to save the homeowner money and protect the environment. Features such as ENERGY STAR appliances, new insulation, tankless water heaters and low E windows save a significant amount of money throughout the lifetime of a home.
New homes come equipped with the latest styles! With many builders offering customization options, homeowners can purchase a home that perfectly meets their needs. By selecting appliances, flooring, paint colors and more, homeowners can truly make a home before they step through the door.
Build A Community
Joining a development growing from the ground up offers homeowners the opportunity to form lasting bonds of friendship as the community expands. Welcome new neighbors into the development with welcoming parties at one of the neighborhood’s sought-after amenities. Popular new construction amenities include pools, tennis courts, walking trails, clubhouses and more!
