Benefits of Buying a Brand NEW Home

When buying a home, you may come down to deciding between building a brand new home, or buying an existing home.

What are the benefits & drawbacks to each?

Let’s discuss!!

Benefits of Buying NEW:

-YOU decide exactly what the home will be

-New major items, usually under warranty- roof, air conditioner, furnace, etc

-Modern, open floor plans, easier resale

Benefits of Buying an Existing Home:

-Generally get more for your money

-Established neighborhoods

-Character and detail in home that a new one may not have

Drawbacks of Buying New:

-Usually more expensive

-May be limited in neighborhoods/subdivisions

-Yard/home may be smaller

Drawbacks of Buying Existing:

-Needs updating/upgrading

-May need major replacements- air conditioner, roof, etc.

-Floor plan may not be up to par with today’s modern ones

Whichever choice you make, it is a personal one, and totally up to you! An experienced agent like myself can help guide you through & see what is the best fit!
