With all the remodel and renovation shows out there, sometimes new construction homes get left out of the conversation. But there is so much to love about a new build! To even the playing field, here are six times that new construction homes come out best in show.
1. Most Unique
When you’re building a new home, you get to highlight your must-haves and make your home your way. We’ve all seen the situation on real estate shows where buyers’ needs compete against one another. Inevitably, one person has to sacrifice the five stall garage for the big backyard. But in a new construction home, everyone can win. Love a walk-in closet with a chandelier? That can happen.
Also, when you build a home to your specifications, it’s less likely that you’ll need a big remodel down the road, and that saves you time and money.
2. Most Healthy
When you buy a new construction home, you can be confident that the materials used in your build meet current health standards. You do not have to worry about lead, asbestos, or other hazards that older homes may contain. New construction homes are also the most hypoallergenic, as you are less likely to have issues with mold, dust, and buildup in HVAC systems.
If you are involved with the build process, you may be able to take measures to allergy-proof your home. You may also choose to build your new construction home with green materials, which are healthier for the planet. New builds may include systems that are more energy efficient, which helps the environment and reduces your energy costs.
3. Fewest Headaches
When you are the first to live in a home, you get all the benefits of the newly installed roofing, flooring, wiring, plumbing, etc. Most likely, you won’t have to worry about the unexpected cost and hassle of your hot water heater going out at 6 a.m. on a Saturday. It is also likely that your new appliances will be under warranty for a while, so you can rest assured that you will be reimbursed if anything goes wrong.
Also, new construction homes are generally less expensive and easier to insure than other houses. Home insurance companies offer additional savings if you build with fire-resistant materials and metal roofing, and install security and fire-suppression systems.
4. Most Advanced
With smart home technology moving at light speed, it can be difficult to keep up with the newest tools on the market. New construction homes have a natural advantage in being built with the newest technology in mind. Even as systems move forward, new homes are built with the flexibility necessary to stay on the cutting edge.
A new build will also allow you to install luxury or high-tech appliances that fit with your lifestyle. This will save you money later, as you won’t have to spend on updates or new appliances, because you got exactly what you wanted the first time around.
5. Most Stylish
Whether you love freestanding bathtubs or subway tile backsplashes, new construction homes make for an inspiring palette to combine your favorite trends. Building a home with design in mind gives its style lasting power. A new build saves you on remodeling and renovation costs because when room features work together to create a streamlined flow throughout the home, you are less likely to feel the need to make improvements.
6. Best for Your Budget
You may have noticed a theme as you read through this post — there are a lot of ways that a new construction home will cut or avoid costs. Some are more immediate, like lower home insurance premiums or energy bills, and others are savings over time, like not needing home improvements or new appliances. Depending on your housing market, your property may even increase in value, so when it comes time to sell, your choice to buy a new construction home may have another benefit. When you buy a new construction home, you get to live in a place you love, and make a wise investment for your future.
