Myths and Misconceptions About Buying a New Home

Are you thinking about buying a new construction home? Does the process intimidate you? We want to debunk some myths about building a new home, especially when that new home is with Judd Builders! If you’re looking to build a new construction home, read about our home types or contact us. We’d love to hear from you!

Myth #1 – You Don’t Save Money With a New Home

Yes, typically, new homes cost more up-front than resale homes because of the features and design options they include. But when you think about cost over time, there are a lot of ways a new home can lower the total cost of homeownership. For example, the energy-efficient features that come standard with new homes can lower monthly utility bills compared to a typical used home. And homeownership offers financial advantages, such as deducting mortgage interest payments from your taxes, and building equity with the value in your home.

Myth #2 – It’s Cheaper to Remodel a Used Home

Remodeling can cost around twice as much per square foot as building new. You have to know if the previous homeowners took good care of the home. If not, it may cost you later. When you buy a used home, you get a home built under less stringent building codes, which may mean less energy efficiency and more potential for problems, such as old HVAC systems, old windows, old roof, etc.

Myth #3 – It’s Too Much Work

Building a new home is exciting! Learn all about what you’ll experience when you build with us, as we take you through each step with ease and support! You’ll be living in your new home before you know it. We also offer Quick Delivery Homes that you can move into in a matter of months!

Myth #4 – They Don’t Build New Homes Like They Used To

No, at Judd Builders, we build them better by giving you more! Construction technology has advanced immensely in recent years. Today’s homes are built with the best products and specialized knowledge. A new home is very energy efficient, more environmentally friendly, and built with higher quality materials.

Myth #5 – Buying a Used Home is More Eco-Friendly

Just like today’s cars run more efficiently than the gas guzzlers of the past, new homes are far more energy efficient than a typical used home. They feature sustainably-sourced or recycled-content products, and super-efficient systems.
