Start Fresh. Buy New.
Are you in the market for your next (or possibly your first) home? Congratulations! Buying a home is such an exciting venture, and your friends here at Reunion want to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
Now that you’re ready to buy, the first step is to determine if you want a new home or a pre-owned home. While you’ll find several differences between these two options, the benefits of owning a new home often outweigh buying an older home.
Some of the more obvious benefits are:
You Can Make It Your Own
When buying a new home, it’s easier to customize it to match your lifestyle. Select your own cabinets, countertops, appliances, flooring, and fixtures. You can even add special touches, such as larger closets, French doors, and skylights.
Everything Is Under Warranty
All of your appliances and products feature the latest designs and building materials and should be last you years before needing replacement. Pre-owned homes will most likely have appliances and units that need replacing soon after move-in.
Your home is more cost-efficient
Today’s new homes are far more energy efficient than older homes that were built five or more years ago. In fact, most homes built today come with energy certifications covering walls, roofs, windows, doors, and even appliance packages.
Besides the obvious advantages of a new house over an older one, there are not-so-obvious ones to think about:
It’s Easier to Entertain
Older homes tend to have smaller, distinct rooms, which can make it challenging to entertain guests. Today’s new home layouts feature more open-space floor plans and better flow. Throw in higher ceilings and additional windows, and that adds to the spaciousness of your space.
You’ll Be Wired More Efficiently
Anyone who’s ever lived in an older home has dealt with the frustration of not having enough outlets to plug into. Today’s builders understand the need for connections for TVs, DVRs, computers, charging stations, etc. so they structure the wiring to meet all of your electronic needs.
You’ll Have Access To Better Amenities
Many new homes are built in well-designed master-planned communities that offer resort-style clubhouses, hiking trails, and stellar neighborhood school options.
