New VS. Used Homes

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: April 22, 2015

Today’s new homes offer more benefits than ever before. Here’s a quick list of 8 reasons why so many home buyers prefer new homes to used houses:

1.) Design Your Dream Home Your Way, or as we like to say, “Build Your Legacy®. Why settle for someone else’s choices when you can select your favorite cabinets, countertops, appliances, carpets and flooring? While you’re at it, you can choose gorgeous bath and kitchen fixtures, lighting and other options that you love. Your new home will reflect your style, not someone else’s taste.

2) Choose a Floor Plan and Room Layout that Meets Your Needs: Our EASYLIVING™ plans are functional, spacious, and comfortable while maintaining a sense of beauty and craftsmanship. Want a master bedroom on the first floor? It’s yours. With massive his and her’s walk-in closets? Done! Want a gourmet kitchen and a luxury master bath? Perhaps you’d like a sitting room with a fireplace in your owner’s suite or French doors that open to your private patio or the pool? It’s easy, when you build your master suite your way.

3) All New, Under Warranty: A used home likely has tired products that may soon need replacing. Your new home — and the products that comprise it — are brand-new and under warranty. What’s the cost to replace a roof, appliances, countertops or a water heater on a used home? Those components of your new home feature the latest designs and building materials and should offer you years of comfort and enjoyment before needing replacement.

4) Energy and Cost Savings: Today’s new homes are far more energy efficient than homes built just five years ago. Building an energy efficient home is a top priority for us. Nothing will save you more money over time than having a certified Energy Right home. This helps to reduce energy bills, improve comfort all while protecting the environment. By using the latest technology and building techniques we are able to accomplish this without sacrificing the style and elegance of the home you expect from us.

5) Comfort and Indoor Air Quality: Today’s new homes meet stringent energy standards and codes not in place in the past. They combine high-performance energy efficiency with state-of-the-art ventilation and air filtration. The result is year-round, draft-free comfort and higher indoor air quality.

6) Low Maintenance: New cars today are computer-designed and computer-equipped. That’s why they perform much more reliably than a car that’s 15 or 20 years old. Homes are the same. Today’s new homes have open floor plans that reflect the way we live today. They’re also made of cutting-edge building products that require less care and maintenance. Another plus? The latest building systems and components are designed and engineered to work together.

7) Community Amenities: Many new homes are built in master-planned communities with resort-style community centers, pools and cabanas. Our community in Applewood offers a Pool and Cabana for your family to enjoy all summer long. Want a more established neighborhood feel with brand new homes? Heritage Brook has a unique combination, with wooded lots, raised foundations and gently rolling topography!

8) That New Home Feel: A used home was someone else’s dream, not yours. It reflects their choices and family memories. You may learn to love pink shag carpet or wallpaper in your great room, but coming in our showroom and selecting what works for you is what most prefer. Get that never lived-in feel with the home of your dreams and your style.
