Receive high quality construction. The technology of home building has improved tremendously over the past few decades and new homes are built better than ever before. They are solidly constructed and well designed for today's lifestyles. They are highly energy efficient, with excellent indoor air quality. From heating systems to roofing shingles and windows, today's building products work better; last longer and often look better.
You know the homebuilder. In the end, the quality of your home depends on the quality of your builder. When you buy a new home, you also buy the company's reputation in the community, its track record with past clients and its commitment to customers. That adds up to extra confidence and reassurance for you.
Warranty: Resale homes simply do not come with a comprehensive warranty. If something goes wrong, you have to deal with it immediately no matter what the cost. Buying a new home, on the other hand, offers peace of mind. Professional builders stand behind their work with an after-sales service program and a guaranteed third-party warranty. Your builder will explain how this warranty works so you can be sure you are getting the coverage that you want. Ask to see a copy of the warranty document, before you sign a contract.
You know what your housing costs will be. This allows you to budget properly and with confidence, which is great news for first-time home buyers. With today's low interest rates and competitive housing prices, home ownership need not cost any more than what you spend on rent. You can buy with as little as 3% down, and use the builder incentives to further help to make home ownership a reality a lot sooner than you may have thought possible.
