Building a new home is certainly exciting. But did you know that value is also on the side of your home decision? It’s true! Let’s unpack why a new home build can provide more value to homeowners.
Built for You
When it comes to building your home, you get to make it just that – yours!
You get to have a say in paint colors, flooring, features, and finishes that you desire. This may not have the biggest impact on the actual value of your home, but it will provide more personal value to you. When you build a custom home, you can make your vision come to life! And what’s better than that?
Fewer Repairs & Replacements
When looking for a home, you’re going to have certain needs and wants. You may come across a house that has the floor plan you like, but you’re not so sure about the lighting fixtures, cabinets, or flooring. Those things can be fixed…but it’s going to cost you time and money to get it exactly the way you want.
With a custom home, you don’t have to worry about replacements because everything is already picked to your liking! Another benefit of having brand new features is you don’t have to wonder if you’ll need to replace or repair something months after moving in. Basic repairs on kitchen appliances and water tanks can add up quickly in an older home. With a new home, your repair and maintenance costs are practically zero for the first few years.
A new home build complies with the latest building regulations, and this has shown to be a better long-term investment. New homes have a tighter building envelope that helps prevent conditioned air from leaking out windows and cracks like in an existing home. With the added energy-efficient appliances, well-insulated walls, and new roof, you’ll be saving on energy bills as well.
Upgraded Constructions & Safety Codes
In older, existing homes, the dreaded safety inspection might reveal structural, electrical, moisture, or other significant damage or problems. This can not only be expensive to fix, but it can make you question the safety of putting your family in that home.
With a new home build, it’s built to the latest construction and safety standards. This way you can cross old worries about home safety off your list. Peace of mind in your home is important!
This is often an overlooked benefit of buying new instead of existing. When families move into a subdivision at the same time, oftentimes they’ll be looking for new friends. This can be a wonderful way of creating lasting friendships right away. A growing neighborhood with thriving amenities around the area is also a great sign of increased home value.
