7 Top Reasons Home Buyers Prefer New!

1) All New, Under Warranty: A used home likely has tired products that may soon need replacing. Your new home — and the products that comprise it — are brand-new and under warranty. Those components of your new home feature the latest designs and building materials and should offer you years of comfort and enjoyment before needing replacement including 1-Year Builder Home Warranty and 30-Year Architectural Shingles.

  • On-trend Millwork & Designer Color Palettes
  • Deeper Baseboards & Crown Molding
  • High-End Appliances like Gas Cooktop or Range with Chimney-style Vent Hood
  • Solid Closet/Pantry Shelving
  • Dovetail Soft-Close Drawers/Doors
  • Under Cabinet Lighting
  • Painted Cabinetry
  • 3-car Tandem Garages
  • Frameless Shower Doors & Enclosures
  • Elongated Commodes
  • Raised Height Cabinets
  • Tiled Wall Bathtubs
  • Hardwood Stair Treads

2) Energy and Cost Savings: Today’s new homes are far more energy efficient than homes built just five years ago. Why settle for drafty, energy-wasting, single-pane windows in a used home? Many new homes offer double or even triple-pane windows. Special window coatings and inert gases between the layers of glass are often available, saving you even more energy and money in both heating and cooling season.

  • Low Emission Windows
  • Separate 14 SEER HVAC Systems
  • Programmable thermostats
  • Encapsulated/Conditioned Crawl Spaces
  • Radiant Heat Barrier Roof Sheathing
  • PEX Plumbing System
  • Re-Circulating Pumps for instant hot water
  • Tankless Water Heaters
  • Passive Radon Mitigation System 

3) Comfort and Indoor Air Quality: Today’s new homes meet stringent energy standards and codes not in place in the past. They combine high-performance energy efficiency with state-of-the-art ventilation and air filtration. The result is year-round, draft-free comfort and higher indoor air quality. 

4) Low Maintenance:  Today’s new homes have open floor plans and high ceilings that reflect the way we live today. They’re also made of cutting-edge building products that require less care and maintenance. Another plus? The latest building systems and components are designed and engineered to work together. 

5) Advanced Technology and Design:  It’s very expensive to replace dated appliances, cabinets and countertops in a used home — and you still won’t have the high ceilings you dream of on the first floor of an older two-story home. All are reasons to build your new home your way, to reflect the way you live today. 

  • 10’ Ceilings on Main/9’ Ceilings Up
  • 8’ Doors & Casings
  • Kitchen Cabinets to the Ceiling
  • Quartz, Granite, & Marble Countertops
  • LED or CFL Bulbs in recessed lighting
  • 8lb Carpet Padding

6) Safety: State-of-the-art circuit breakers. Electric garage door openers with infrared beams that stop if a tricycle or child is too near. High-efficiency furnaces and air conditioners that use the latest environmentally-friendly coolants. Cabinets, carpets and paints that use fewer volatile organic compounds, so that you and your family can breathe easier. 

7) That New Home Feel: A used home was someone else’s dream, not yours, reflecting their choices and family memories. We find that more and more people prefer a brand new home.
