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?
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
-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:
-May need major replacements- air conditioner, roof, etc.
-Floor plan may not be up to par with today’s modern ones
