New vs Pre-Owned Home

Advantages to consider when buying a new home:

  • Features the latest floor plans for today’s life-styles.
  • Is built using the latest energy saving materials, the newest technologies & meets the current building codes.
  • Enhanced energy efficiency will make your home more comfortable in summer and winter while lowering your energy bills.
  • Extended builder’s warranty usually provides a 10 year structural warranty, 2 year manufacturer’s warranty on appliances, and a one year walk through with repairs done by the builder.
  • Your choice: you select the location of a new home community, the builder, your home site, and a floor plan that best meets your housing needs.
  • It is the simplest way to get what you want because you start with a clean slate.
  • You can personalize landscaping for your life-style.
  • There are added amenities such as parks, walking trails, swimming pools, tennis courts, and golf courses that provide a great venue for socializing, exercise and more.
  • You get additional peace of mind from knowing that no one else has lived in your home before you and your family and there’s just something about moving into a brand new home!

Advantages to consider when buying a pre-owned home

  • A used home is typically in an established neighborhood with mature trees, shopping centers, and can be close to schools.
  • It is often priced lower than a new construction home, and it may have the character or charm that you are looking to purchase.
  • Lower purchase price:  prices are not only more negotiable, they start lower than prices for new homes of similar size.
  • Typically “pre-owned” homes are closer to town, which may mean less commuting time.
  • Builder errors have been detected and resolved:  no need to guess how an old home will age.
  • Cheaper to move into:  window shades and blinds are in place, landscaping, patios and fences are complete.
  • Style and craftsmanship: plaster walls, parquet floors, wood paneling  and 12 foot ceilings are prohibitively expensive in a new house.
