When it comes to purchasing a home, there are a variety of reasons to build a new home instead of buying an existing home, from customization options to energy efficiency. Here are five great reasons to build new:

CUSTOMIZATION. The most appealing part about building your own home is customization. From the site your home is built on, to the exterior colors and design, to interior layout and options, you have a plethora of choices to make your new home perfect for your lifestyle.

LOWER MAINTENANCE. While newly built homes still require everyday homeowner maintenance, new homes are built to meet current building codes and will have the most
up-to-date technology and finishes, meaning they’ll last longer than a home full of repairs or heavy maintenance issues. It also means less stress and less money spent on that maintenance.

LOWER ENERGY COSTS. With new innovations in energy efficiency coming along every day, building new means taking advantage of those innovations to lower your energy use. Insulation, heating and cooling, and appliance options can all affect the energy consumption of your new home.

NEW HOME JUST FOR YOU. Not only will a newly constructed home fit into your current life without you having to adapt to it, but this will be a home that no one else has lived in
yet. It will be a blank slate, just for you and your family, without any surprises that can be found in older homes.

WARRANTY. New homes come with warranties on workmanship and materials. They provide peace of mind that you will enjoy your home without worry for many years. Plus, everything in the home is new, including appliances, systems and more, which come with manufacturer warranties as well.

Even if you start your new home search set on finding that perfect move-in ready home already built, building from start to finish guarantees you’ll get exactly what you want and need in your preferred location. Working with a professional can help you decide what the right move will be for you and your family.
