Although there are many well-maintained resale homes to buy in The Carolinas, there are good reasons to look toward buying a new construction home. In terms of value and quality, investors and buyers who opt for a new construction home will be getting more.
Moreover, with the current high demand for existing homes, choosing to build your property from the ground up offers you more control.
1. ABILITY TO CHOOSE YOUR PREFERRED LOCATION
Nothing influences the value of your property like its location. Finding the right home in the right place is hard when buying a resale home; most times you have to make difficult tradeoffs. This is not the case with new construction homes as you get to decide where you want the home to be.
2. PAY LESS FOR YOUR HOME
With many buyers paying above the asking price, many of the houses may be currently overpriced. But even with the increases in prices of building materials, you will still be able to finish your new home at a lower price than you would buy the same home. But once completed, the house could sell at the same price as comparable homes. Our brokers are able to negociate the best terms for your house EVEN with a onsite sales agent
3. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF GREAT DISCOUNTS AND FINANCING
Many of the builders have special offers for buyers; from price reductions to free gourmet kitchens. Some will even offer in-house financing with decent rate buy-downs. You can also get good discounts on closing sales, as well as, other very attractive offers. Our Brokers, depending on builder bonus, may be able to offer a discount on services rendered.
4. A MODERN FLOOR PLAN
Instead of being locked into the floor plan chosen by the original designer of the house or undertaking expensive renovations to alter the old floor plan, you can start with a blank canvas. Your builder can help you choose a contemporary floor plan, meets your needs, and will not cost a lot to modify.
5. GET AN UP-TO-DATE HOME
The home will be state-of-the-art in terms of the kind of building materials used, the building technology employed, its design, and the appliances inside it. You will not be grappling with many of the problems older homes have to deal with because you will solve them from inception.
6. A GREEN BUILDING
By choosing a new construction home over a resale home, you avoid the cost and hassle of retrofitting an old home to make it energy-efficient. From the get-go, you can design your home with energy efficiency in mind. You can incorporate smart features into the building with ease.
7. LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS
Builders will typically offer a warranty of two years for everything in the home and 8-10 years for the building’s structures. This means you will not spend on maintenance in the first few years. Even when the warranty ends, your maintenance costs will still be low because everything in the home will be new.
When buying a property, your three major concerns are usually location, the initial cost of buying the property, and the cost of maintaining it. When you buy a new construction home, you can get the absolute best across these three areas.
