02 Nov 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.

- Under Cabinet Lighting
- Painted Cabinetry
- 3-car Tandem Garages

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.

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.

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.
