When you buy a “used” home, you don’t really get to pick things like the color of the walls or the type of flooring in each room. But if you buy new, you open up a world of customization possibilities!

Some options—like putting in basements or extra rooms—will have higher costs, but you’ll have the freedom to pick whatever you like, right down to the placement of the outlets.

Equipped with State-of-the-Art Features

Most of the time, the previous owners of a home will leave their old appliances for the new owners. While you can get lucky and inherit a few nice things, most likely, any appliances left behind will be outdated. You could always buy your own new appliances, but that means a lot of extra money and labor on your end.

A new home comes equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and features for your convenience. Most notably, the home will be outfitted with the latest energy efficient technology, meaning you can expect to save money on utility bills in the long run!

Less Maintenance & Repairs

Buying a home that was previously owned means there will probably be certain areas of the house that are a little more “lived in” than others. Leaky faucets, creaky floorboards, outdated water heaters, dingy roofs—while some of these issues are addressed during the inspection, many can start cropping up after you’ve spent a few months in the home.

When you buy a new home, you won’t have to worry nearly as much about maintenance and repairs. Plus, if there are certain upgrades you know you’ll want right away, you can let the builders know and have it bundled into your overall cost.

You’ll Save Time & Money

Repainting the walls, putting in new floors, repairing patched up problems—not only will these things cost you money, but they’ll also take up a decent amount of your time. When you buy a new home, you should be able to enjoy your first weekend in it, instead of worrying about what still needs to be done to make it perfect.

Buying new construction means all of those little tasks are already taken care of!
