When a potential home buyer is looking for a home there are many choices between condos, single-family, multifamily etc. When it comes to resale or new construction many buyers look at both. Here are a few hidden gems when it comes to purchasing a new construction home.
Building a Community Together
Purchasing a home in a new community can mean that everyone is new to the subdivision. This is a great way to form lasting bonds and friendships with your neighbors because you all move in around the same time. A lot of times homebuilders will host community get-togethers for new homeowners to meet.
Today’s new construction homes have more open floorplans that flow nicely. Older homes have more walls and distinguished rooms that make entertaining a bit of a challenge. In an open floorplan, the host can be cooking in the kitchen and interacting with guests in the living areas. There is not a feeling of being closed off.
A Clean Slate
During COVID-19 everyone became more aware of germs and clean surfaces. Purchasing a new construction home means you will be the first to cook in the kitchen or park in the garage. A new construction home is move-in ready with no ugly wallpaper to replace or renovations to make. Landscaping will be also up to you as you will be able to design and plant the garden and lawn.
Outlets, Outlets Everywhere
Purchasing a resale means having to deal with old wiring. Older homes are wired differently than a new construction home. A house in the 1960’s was not built to accommodate high-definition televisions or computers or Wifi smart appliances. Older homes do not have as many outlets as newer homes because there were not as many electronics.
