Why Buy New Construction?

Posted By on September 30, 2011

Here are 10 Reasons Why Buying New Construction makes so much sense.

Content provided by the Homebuilders’ Association of Greater Cincinnati.

  1. When you buy a new home you get exactly what you want.  You won’t have to replace old carpet, countertops or aging appliances or roofs.  You can select the type of house, appliances, window treatment and flooring.
  2. New homes carry better warranties.
  3. Today’s new homes can be wired to take full advantage of the latest communication, security, and home office and entertainment technologies.
  4. New homes often sell at higher resale than older homes.
  5. Builders today are subject to more stringent disclosure standards than existing home sellers.
  6. New homes are safer than old homes.  They have the most up to date wiring and electrical components and have been constructed to meet today’s stringent building codes.
  7. New homes are healthier because asbestos, lead, and other hazardous materials are no longer used in new home building.
  8. New homes are more energy efficient.  Newer window technology, increased efficiency in heating & cooling systems, better insulation and better control of air infiltration are just a few of the things that make new homes far superior in energy efficiency than existing homes.  New homes are twice as energy efficient as homes built prior to 1980.
  9. Existing and or older homes are more expensive to maintain and require additional maintenance and upkeep vs. a brand new home or condominium.
  10. New homes offer more updated home styles, typically featuring more storage, larger rooms and modern features.
