5 Reasons to Fall in Love with a New Home

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: February 28, 2018

In the month of February we celebrated, and showed our appreciation for the people we love. Love is timeless. Love is ageless. Love is blind. Those may be clichés but they’re also true, and are some of the reasons why love for others is so powerful.


Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about your love for your home. That is something that can—and probably will—change with time. As your house grows older, as its maintenance issues multiply, as its upkeep gets more and more expensive, your eyes may start to wander. You may find yourself admiring your friend’s brand new build a bit more than you think is right. But this isn’t anything to feel guilty about! It’s a natural and healthy instinct to desire a home that brand new and shiny—without creaky floors, peeling paint, and cold drafts.

These feeling just mean it’s time to build your own home. Here are our top five reasons why it’s time to fall in a love with a brand new home:



  1. Energy and Efficiency

This beauty knows how to keep things warm. A newly built, modern home is going to be more energy efficient than your old one. It may be built with double or triple pane windows, or special insulating coatings, as well as with high quality insulated doors. And they will likely have more a more efficient heater than your old home, making it toastier throughout the winter, as well as less expensive to keep it that way.



  1. Brand new and under warranty
    A used home likely has old and well-worn appliances and materials that will probably need to be replaced soon. Your newly built home on the other hand is filled with appliances and materials that have never even been used before. You now don’t have to worry about much it will cost to replace a roof, dishwasher, countertops or a water heater. The ones you have should offer you years of comfort and enjoyment before needing to be repaired or replaced. And should you have any problems, you can rest assured knowing they are still under warranty.



  1. Newer is Safer
    Technological advances have made homes not just more comfortable and energy efficient but safer too. From state-of-the-art circuit breakers to electric garage door openers with infrared beams that stop the doors if something—or someone—comes too near. Advanced home security systems, furnaces and air conditioners with non-toxic coolants, advanced ventilation and filtration systems, building materials and paint that are free from harmful chemicals like lead and asbestos. All of these things that make your home a safe and healthy place come standard on brand new home builds, but may cost a pretty penny to incorporate into an older home.


  1. Your Needs. Your Style.
    When you build your own home you don’t have to try to reshape anyone else’s tastes to better suit yours. Why settle for someone else’s idea of style when you can build a new home in a style that is uniquely yours? You’ll enjoy your home more when it’s filled with your own choice of appliances, flooring, kitchen fixtures, lighting. And the layout and design will be all yours too. Maybe the previous owners of that old house you looked at had a good reason for putting the master bedroom in the basement and the kitchen on the second floor. But their needs are different than yours. In your new home you can include that luxurious spa-like bathroom in the master suite and add that private patio. It’s all you.



  1. That Shiny, New Feeling
    A newly built home just feels better. When you walk into your home each day and know that it is yours, that it was built just for you, you’ll be struck by an intangible but undeniable sense of well-being and belonging. You’ll also feel happier because you won’t have to deal with the stress that comes with constantly maintaining, repairing, and replacing old components of your home. And the money you save from not having maintenance costs will contribute to your financial well-being too.


Feel free to tell your aging house that you’re trading it in for a brand new, never-lived-in model. Give yourself the opportunity to fall in love again—with your home!
