If you are in the market for a new home, you have probably considered both new construction homes and pre-owned homes during your home buying process. Today’s new construction homes offer more benefits than ever before! Here’s a quick list why many home buyers are preferring new homes to pre-owned homes.

1. Design Your Dream Home
When you buy a pre-owned home, you are settling for someone else’s design choices.You won’t be able to select your cabinets and countertops or appliances and flooring. When you buy a new construction home, you can choose all of your design finishes so that your home will reflect your style. Therefore, you’ll be able to design your dream home from start to finish and you won’t have to worry about remodeling an existing home.

2. Choose a Floorplan to Meet Your Specific Needs
Do you want your owner’s suite on the first floor? Are you looking for spacious walk-in closets? Do you want an open concept floorplan? When you buy a new construction home, you can choose from a variety of floorplans. You can choose the floorplan that meets the needs of you and your family. This is especially true when you work with Judd Builders! All of our communities have multiple floorplans to choose from, so you can choose the one that best meets your needs.

3. Everything is Brand New and Under Warranty
Pre-owned homes come with used and tired products that might need to be replaced. From water heaters to roofing, you’ll have to spend your hard earned cash on fixing up everything before you can enjoy your home. A new construction home comes with brand new everything! Don’t worry about replacing anything anytime soon when you buy a new construction home. Everything will be brand new and under warranty.

4. More Energy Efficient
New homes are more energy efficient than pre-owned homes that were built years ago. You won’t have to settle for a home that is drafty or energy-wasting when you buy a new construction home. There are many energy efficient building products that will make your new home more sustainable.

5. Low maintenance
Today’s new homes are designed and built with some of the best building products, which means less maintenance. The fact that new homes also come with brand new everything, you won’t have to worry about surprise costs or maintenance when something breaks down. Also, new homes are built to reflect the way that homeowner’s live today. Therefore, there is less to maintain.

6. Community Amenities
Many new homes are built in planned communities. These communities come with a bunch of amazing amenities that home buyers should keep in mind. From stunning clubhouses to resort-style community pools, when you buy a new home in a planned community you can enjoy all these amenities at your leisure! Planned communities are also built in sought-after areas in some of the best school districts with shopping close by, which is another great benefit of buying a new home instead of an existing one.

7. New Home Feel
Instead of a pre-owned home that was designed by someone else, your new home will reflect all of your design and interior choices! Many homebuilders that build new construction homes have a design studio to help you make any design choices for you new home. Most home buyers prefer that never lived-in feel over pre-owned because they won’t have to deal with the quirks and repairs that come with pre-owned homes. Reap the benefits of the new home feel and make lasting memories with your family once you move in!
