Why Buy New?
So you’re in the market to buy a home. The Florida real estate market has plenty to offer, from brand new construction to older properties and resales . You have your own preferences and needs to take into consideration, and each kind of home has its own individual selling points. But here are just a few reasons why you should consider buying a newly built home.
Safer, Greener, and cheaper. Nowadays, new homes are built according to the latest safety codes and standards. According to Mortgage Advice Bureau, new build homes are more energy efficient and generate less carbon dioxide emissions than resales. You also don’t have to worry about repairs as soon as you move in. Imagine, finding a great deal on a slightly older home that appeared to have no issues with it; and after closing and a month of being there you find out there is an additional $10,000 of cost that you need to put into the house you just purchased. Professional and respected builders use the latest in construction techniques and building components. This makes a newly built home greener, safer, more comfortable, and easier to maintain.
A blank canvas. Unlike older or resale properties, a brand new construction home allows you to personalize without having to go through too much trouble. Instead of having to renovate, you’re given a blank page to start a new chapter of your life. Customization is even easier, as buyers get to pick certain aspects of the home (flooring, fixtures, etc.) before moving in.
Innovative paying schemes. More people are given a chance to purchase their own home through a number of new purchase schemes offered by homebuilders and even the government. Larger and well-established homebuilders tend to have their own mortgage companies to help homebuyers finance this endeavor.
Warranties.Trusted homebuilders offer buyers a comprehensive customer care package. While the components of the package depend on the homebuilder, some perks include repair work for the first year of residence.
