There are certain details you can be sure will be reliable with a new construction house for sale. Older homes leave home buyers on alert for anything from a leaky roof to hidden issues throughout older, less cared for, homes. A new construction house for sale could be the answer to finding our next home! When it comes to buying a house, new construction has a sparkly new feeling that creates a first time-owner attraction. IN today’s housing market, home buyers get to choose from newly built homes, existing homes for sale and foreclosures. There are many considerations as you choose what type of home is the right fit for you and your family. When buying a new home there are many advantages that will save the new homeowner a substantial amount of money and aggravation now and in the future. The unmatched advantages of purchasing a newly constructed home include,
Newness (and warranties!) of a New Construction House for Sale:
The most exciting part of buying a newly constructed home is that everything in a new home is NEW. From the roof to the windows, walls, doors, electricity, siding and so much more! From soup to nuts, everything is new. One huge benefit of this, that few people consider, is warranties. Any appliances included in your home will probably come with several years-worth of warranties. The furnace, water heater, central air system, and any kitchen appliances that come with the home are likely to be covered for several years under manufacturers’ warranties. Chances are that your first few years of home ownership will incur very few costs for repairs, which is simply not the case when purchasing foreclosures, or even some nicely maintained properties.
Adding Efficiency to Your New Home:
Newly constructed homes ‘generally’ equal efficiency. New appliances are made to use less energy than previous models, while windows and doors offer more heat efficiency today as well. This translates into lower energy costs, which means you will likely spend less on electricity each month. New construction homes are better insulated than older homes as well, which means your heating source for the home will essentially cost you less in monthly utilities. Certain efficiency upgrades could even lower your tax bill so make sure to check with your tax adviser/assessor to see if you qualify for any efficiency discounts.
Add Your Own Touch to Your New Home:
If you purchase your newly constructed home during the pre-construction phase, you are likely to receive a great deal of flexibility! Most times you can customize appliances, paint colors, flooring, kitchen details, tile, and other home features. And, if you purchase your new home at the beginning of construction, you will likely be able to have input into an array of details throughout the home.
Discounts and Amenities in a New Construction House for Sale:
Builders can sometimes offer you discounts off the purchase price or be able throw in added amenities if the timing is right. Frequently, a home builder will present you with mortgage options as well to help make the process smoother for everyone involved. But remember, a home builder can never require you to use their preferred lender. You always get to choose your own. Even if you do choose to purchase a newly constructed home, treat a new construction home with the same healthy skepticism you would any other home. Get it inspected to make sure everything is in proper shape. Make sure you think you will be happy in the neighborhood. And, always shop around for the best loan available to you. Shopping around for mortgage interest rates now can mean a future lower interest rate and that translates into lower payments over the entire course of the loan.
