Buying New Real Estate? You’re Not Alone!
Posted Wednesday, August 27, 2014
If you are considering buying new real estate, you may have more fellow buyers than you might think.
Buying new construction over existing homes has advantages you may not have considered:
- You choose the options: Depending on the builder of your new home and how far along he is in the construction process, you may be able to change floor plans and interior design options that you would just have to live with if you bought an existing home.
- Flexible closing dates: Because you are negotiating with the builder, and not the current homeowner, you may find more flexibility in setting a closing date that works for your schedule.
- Energy Savings: New home construction often uses more energy-efficient approaches to building and newer, more efficient appliances. If your home is Energy Star certified, it could be up to 30% more energy efficient than an older home.
- Fewer Repairs: The odds are that a new home will need substantially fewer repairs to its structure, appliances, HVAC, roof and other big ticket items than a 20-year-old home will need.
