There are many benefits to buying a brand new home. The only benefit I see in purchasing an existing home is location. Sometimes the location you are looking for has no new homes in it. Otherwise building new has many more advantage over used. The following are the top 10 reasons you should purchase a brand new home:


  1. Warranty. Most new homes are protected by a warranty. Should something break or otherwise go wrong, you are protected from costly damages and repairs. Most new homes come with at least a 1-year limited warranty on workmanship and materials, and a 10-year structural
  2. Custom Design. A new home can be custom-designed to fit your families needs and provide the life style you want to live. It is a chance to create a home that is not to big or not to small.
  3. Interior Decorating: With a new home, you have the ability to decorating the home in your style , with your taste. A new home is an expression of your personality and your individuality. A new home makes it easier to achieve these items.
  4. Energy Efficiency. Houses that are older are often drafty and outfitted with appliances that waste energy. New homes have the latest energy star rated appliances and furnaces, and are much easier to heat and cool efficiently. The age old saying of “they do not build them like they use to “ is true , we build them better today.
  5. Safety. A new home does not have the issue of outdated electrical wiring, which can be a possible fire hazard. Most new homes also have smoke detectors with battery backup and more electrical outlets to prevent overloading.
  6. Healthier Homes. Today’s home are healthier than older homes. Today’s home do not have the issues of Lead-based pipes, asbestos insulation, Lead based paints and other outdated fixtures that older homes can come with. Today with special filters we can improve air quality in your home. Newer homes are just plain out safer.
  7. Easier Maintenance. Newer homes are often constructed with siding and window trim that do not require yearly painting. New roofing is thicker and lasts longer. Newer homes come with better technology that did not exist when that older home was built.
  8. More Value in the future; If the home is designed correctly , a new home designed will bring more value in the future because it will not be out dated

We build homes better today that we did 10 years ago. With new technologic and stricter building standards, homes today are better suited for the future.
