7 Benefits of Constructing a New Home with Rezide Properties

While there are many benefits of constructing a new home versus purchasing an older home, here are a few of the benefits of new construction:

Have It Your Way – let’s be honest: you’ve thought about your dream home and the only way to make it come true, really true, is to do it yourself. Customization is a key factor in the benefit of designing your home, your way. You get to choose the floor plan and layout that best suits your family’s needs. With a new home, you don’t have to worry about the negotiation of concessions with a homeowner who is attached to the way they did things. It’s all up to you.

New Home, Who’s This? – that new-home feel. You know it when you feel it. It’s a calm stillness, a smell…new wood, new paint…and it’s all yours. This is quite possibly the best feeling ever. If you’ve worked hard to purchase a home, you deserve for it to be all yours…and brand new. How will you decorate? What colors will you choose? Where will you place the couch you’ll sit on while you bask in your new-home feel?

Cool Comfort – the indoor air quality is going to be top-notch in a newly constructed home. Often with an older house, the A/C and ventilation need repair, or will soon after you buy! If you suffer from bad allergies, an older home won’t compete with the air quality you’ll find in a modern, newly constructed home. Plus,

Save Money on Repairs – low maintenance on a new home means you can go years without needing costly repairs. This winds up being one of the biggest differences between used and new. Buying a used home means the possibility of inheriting all kinds of problems that may be just about to require attention…and break your bank. You don’t want surprises when it comes to your home, and purchasing a new home can help ensure you know exactly what you’re getting into.

Save Money on Energy – another way you’ll save in the long run is on energy costs. New construction homes are going to feature better, more tightly sealed doors and windows, and the addition of energy-saving appliances means a greener, cheaper home life!

Extra Goodies – not only will those appliances be energy-saving, but they’re also going to be smart and/or feature the latest technology. You’re also more likely with a new home to be in a community that features a pool, community lounge, or other amenities. You’re also more likely to have a warranty, as most new homes come with better warranty options than you’ll find with an older sale.

Safety – your newly constructed home will feature the latest in safety technology. Plus, you won’t have to worry about fire hazards from old chimneys or dusty ventilation systems.
