Building A New Home Over A Buying A Resale
Buying a home is one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make in life. It’s a huge financial obligation, and you will be spending the majority of your time in it, so you want to make sure it is PERFECT for you and your family.
Before looking for your new dream home, you will want to do your research to ensure that you don’t end up with buyer’s remorse. Begin by writing down your wants and needs, including location, number of bedrooms, square footage, etc.
While many resale homes are beautiful, and can check off the majority of things on your list, a new home is YOURS. Don’t settle for someone else’s cabinet choice, paint color, and kitchen fixtures.
Here’s a quick list of why so many people are choosing to build new homes these days:
This may be the biggest perk of building a new home. When visiting with a homebuilder, you will see an array of different floorplans to choose from. One story, two story, covered patio, no covered patio, office space, extra bedrooms, etc. The choices are endless! First America Homes offers many different floorplans, for both starter homes and move-up acreage living. Looking for a media room to host a Super Bowl party, or an extended patio for those summer cook outs? We have it all.
A used home likely has products that will soon need replacing, whether it’s the roof, water heater, appliances, plumbing, etc, those are all things that would be covered under warranty with a new home! Those components in a new build feature the latest models and designs, and should offer you years of comfort before needing to be replaced.
Homes built today are far more energy efficient than homes built 10-20 years ago! Why settle for drafty, energy-wasting windows in a used home? First America Homes is proud to be a part of the Guardian Certification Program, included at no extra cost. Guardian Certification provides the assurance that your new home meets or exceeds the industry’s most rigorous standards for energy efficiency, comfort and healthy living.
Many new home communities feature resort-style community pools, amenity centers or clubhouses, hiking trails, etc. Not to mention, they are usually close to shopping and dining as well!
This is another big seller for new homes. Who doesn’t want to personalize their home and make it their own? When buying a First America Home, you will visit with a professional designer at the Design Center! Here you will have the opportunity to personalize your home by choosing paint colors, cabinets, countertops, finishes, and much more.
