Why Buyers Love Brand New Houses
Investing in a new home is no small feat. It takes years and years of saving, planning, and shopping and no two buyers are alike in their list of wants, needs, and preferences. However, many folks, if given the choice prefer new construction over older models more often than not. As the world becomes more technologically savvy and equipped, there’s good reasons why newly built houses are so popular.
Top 4 Reasons Buyers Love New Houses
CONTROL: Often buyers can select their favorite lot, exterior design, interior floor plan and room layout, not to mention their choice of colors and content of flooring and window coverings.
CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY: Most new properties are carefully constructed with environmentally friendly materials and stocked with energy efficient appliances and high performance electrical, plumbing, and heating systems.
CASH SAVINGS: Because of the better technology and energy efficient materials and appliances, consumers pay less for utilities while they’re conserving energy. State of the art garage openers and circuit breakers, for example, eliminate costly repair bills and service calls.
COMMUNITY AMENITIES: Many new residential developments offer well- equipped common areas for residents and their visitors to enjoy. Pools and clubhouses are standard amenities, and now hiking trails, gyms, and other fitness tools are strategically planned for residents’ convenience and healthy lifestyle choices.
Just as older model flip phones are becoming less popular, older houses, while charming and quaint are being upstaged by new models that come equipped with built in amenities, modern technology, energy efficient appliances, and environmentally friendly building supplies.
Buyers know that unless an older property has already been updated, the cost of new plumbing and electrical systems and replacement of older model appliances, windows, and doors will add to the property’s price tag. For some, it’s just easier to buy new and enjoy the amenities, leaving the big home improvement projects (and expense) to others!
