Why purchase a new home?

by Shea Homes Arizona on October 5, 2012

Are you on the fence about purchasing a new or used home? Alongside competitive pricing and greater initial and longevity of property value, here are some reasons for buying new that you may not have considered. 

Purchasing a new home gives you the ability to be a part of a new, growing community, wherever you choose. As your family engages in similar experiences with other new home owners, it can be more natural to build relationships with neighbors than in an older neighborhood where it’s often impossible to know if the nearby homes are rented or owned by investors.

Having control over and knowledge of the condition and quality of the property you purchase is important for any homebuyer. And just like buying a new car, a new home offers you the most control and the least unexpected maintenance issues as well as a warranty that works in your favor should an issue arise. With that kind of assurance of quality, you can enjoy living and playing in your new home instead of spending time and money to fix it.

A new home can also help you build the green lifestyle you have always wanted. To Shea Homes, energy efficiency doesn’t just mean hugging trees; it means significant savings in utilities, longer lasting homes and overall superior quality in insulation, windows, plumbing, appliances, HVAC systems, and more. A new home opens the door to become more energy-wise and fiscally responsible without having to make expensive upgrades and remodels to an older home.

As with energy efficiency and location, new homes allow you to choose what amenities you want in your home and neighborhood. With a new home, you have the flexibility to choose the floorplan and home-site that best suits your needs and lifestyle. And with the ability to customize rooms and landscaping for specific uses, a new home is able to adapt to you rather than you being forced to adapt to inconvenient features of an older home.

So what’s the bottom line? A new home not only saves money in the long run, it also saves a lot of frustration. Ultimately, as the buyer, you can take control of your future and make your dream home reality today—not after you re-tile the kitchen or fix that one shower head.
