If you’re a first-time homebuyer, you’ve spent a lot of time and hard work building up the funds to purchase your first house. You naturally want to get every drop of value possible out of one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your entire life.
At Cedar Creek, we’re here to help. Did you realize that there are several specific benefits to a new construction home like the new homes we have for sale in our communities? These benefits can range from aesthetic to potentially financial, and they can be meaningful. Here are a few benefits of new construction homes to know.
In many cases, first-time buyers gravitate toward “starter homes” – a fancy way of saying an older home that requires some fixes. These homes will often offer minor savings at the point of purchase, but if you consider all the upkeep and expenses that will go into maintenance over a period of years, they’re actually far worse long-term investments.
New construction homes, on the other hand, come with none of these issues. New homes are move-in ready right away, limiting expenses and future time commitments.
All Your Desired Features
When you purchase a previously used home, the features are what they are – if you want to change them, you have to undergo an expensive remodeling process. This likely means you’ll have to compromise in some areas. With a new home, however, you have discretion to choose features even as the home is being built.
Existing homes also come with existing locations, which might not be perfect for your needs. If you work with a new home builder, though, you get access to several locations with a broad range of homes available.
Low Maintenance Costs
Everything is new in a new construction home, and this generally means it’ll be a few years at least before you have to do any significant maintenance or repairs. In addition, you get the benefit of a new home warranty that covers many defects – you don’t get any of this kind of protection when purchasing a previously owned home.
