New Construction vs Resale

Buying a home is a big life decision, with a lot of considerations. What’s your budget? Where do you want to buy a home? What neighborhood will be best for your family? Do you want to buy a newly-built home or a resale home? This last question was asked in the latest “What Home Buyers Really Want” research from the National Association of Home Builders. It turns out that in 2021, 60% of home buyers preferred a newly-built home over an existing home.

Why do more than half of the home buyers surveyed prefer to buy newly-built homes? Whether you’re buying your first home, relocating, or need a little more space, there are many benefits to buying a newly-built home. We’ve compiled a list of the top reasons to buy a brand new home for you here!

Less Maintenance

Older homes - even those that have been well-maintained - will deteriorate with time. This means more work to maintain the older home. Conversely, newly-built homes are just that: new! That means you’ll have minimal - if any - expenses for your home’s maintenance.

New Home Warranty

Speaking of home maintenance, one of the greatest benefits of a newly-built home is that it’s still covered by your new home’s warranty. This means that if you encounter any damage or issues, your warranty will likely cover it. Typically a new home build warranty will cover materials and labor for one year, plumbing/heating/electrical/AC for two years, and any structural elements for ten years.

More Energy Efficient

When it comes to energy efficiency, newly-built homes incorporate the latest technology. Older houses were built for different times, and their appliances and energy systems are often less efficient. Newly-built homes are also built with the most modern methods using the most eco-friendly materials. This ensures that your insulation, heating/cooling system, and overall home operating systems are the most energy-efficient. And a more energy-efficient home means lower operating costs for the homeowner!

Completely Customizable

Home floor plans have changed a lot over the past decades. One of the benefits of buying a brand new home is that you can ensure that your home’s floor plan meets your needs! Modern floorplans often feature open-concept living, multi-functional outdoor spaces, and sleek designs. If you like one of our communities’ floorplans but want to make some changes, we’ve also made it possible to customize your floor plan! Just click on your favorite floorplan to start designing.

Room To Grow

While purchasing a new home, you’re also buying into a new community. A new home community is a place where everyone can grow together. Your neighbors are also starting fresh in their brand-new homes, giving everyone an opportunity to create a truly unique community that’s built together. We design our Western Washington communities with great amenities and the goal of being a place that brings people together.
