Why buy a new home? 5 Reasons to Consider a New Home!

1. Innovative Floor Plans: Builders today design homes the way you live today! Open floor plans, large mud rooms, 1st or 2nd floor laundry rooms and more places for storage! They offer the latest designs such as Mufti Levels or the 5 level split homes, 1st floor masters, updated 2 stories and Open ranch floor plans. Building a new home ensures that home offices no longer need to be created out of converted bedroom, as they're conveniently located on the main floor. New homes offer bonus and flex rooms, which allows you to customize the space to your family needs!

2. Energy Efficiency: Buyers today are concerned with throwing away extra money on high utility bills. Builders are now taking advantage of the latest products available such as: Low E Glass Windows, the latest HVAC systems, Energy Star appliances, superior insulation, and Green Homes. In fact some local builders are offering a guarantee on the utility bills! Ask me how this program works!

3. Better Financing: Builders are able to offer buyers the best rates in town! They generally have a lender they have partnered up with to offer rates lower than any bank can offer you. For example if you are pre approved with you credit union or bank now for $150,000 than typically when you talk to the builder’s lender they may qualify you for $190,000. Why? Because the builders have the ability to add certain expenses into the home offering the lowest rates available!

4. Personalize the Space: One of the best things for new buyers is the ability to personalize your space before you move in without lifting a finger. Most builders offer a design studio so that you can design and customize the entire home. You can pick items such as: Siding, Shutters, Cabinets, Countertops, faucets, flooring, lighting fixtures, railing systems, paint color and appliances. A decorating consultant will be on hand to guide you through he selections and make the process absolutely painless!

5. Warranties: When you build a new home you can rest assured that you'll be taken care of before, during, and after the sale! Most builders offer warranties on the home and the structure of the home. Each builder offers a different warranty plan. So ask me what the differences are if you are looking to buy a new home!
