Why Buy a Newly Constructed House?

Home buyers can either opt for a previously owner or foreclosed home or buying a brand new one which is much more expensive if one brings it down to per square foot. There are good selling points to these two choices but there are more advantages of buying a brand new one if you want to have a place where you can comfortably settle down for good.

In the case of a pre-owned home, we can find two selling points. Pre owned homes are cheaper and so you have a lower monthly amortization. But this cost does not include other expenditures which you might have to make whenever things go wrong or things get damaged. Another selling point for buying a pre-owned home is that the property or the land itself is valuable, never mind the house, and so this is a good real estate investment in the long haul.

If you really want to settle down comfortably, then choosing a newly constructed home has a lot of selling points that we often overlook because we are only thinking about how expensive the down payment is and the high amortization cost.

One of the selling points of a brand new home is the flexibility you have in choosing the layout, the color, the type of flooring, and other things when it comes to design. Participation of buyers in the process of designing the new house is oftentimes allowed by the home builders. But this is not the case with a used-house, the process will have to involve demolishing first then constructing a new arrangement but limited to restrictive structural patterns that has been emplaced already.

Today, building codes required energy efficient standards. Because of the high energy risk at present, home builders need to adhere to the regulatory code. What this means is that newly constructed home need to adapt to better develop innovations beginning with higher efficiency insulation , doors, and widows like the one we now see which has double, triple and quadruple panes, which were unthought-of of before because energy was cheap and abundant to keep one’s home warm during winters and cool during summers. Today, with the new energy efficient HVAC designs, we can greatly reduce our energy bills. Today new homes use high efficiency stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters which were unlike what they have years before.

A new home has fewer and more minor repairs and they have warranties so there is no need to spend on anything until after a year or two.

Another thing that I want to mention, is that new home buyers may be able to take advantage of mortgage financing perks that builders give in their effort to sell as many units as they can.
