Purchasing land and building a home to your specifications is a dream for many homeowners. But you can enjoy many benefits and save on time and frustration when you purchase a newly built home in Central New Jersey. You won’t have control over every detail, but there are many perks. Here are a handful of the benefits of buying a newly built home that will definitely put a smile on your face.
Less Maintenance: All the major systems in a newly built home will be new. You probably won’t run into expensive and untimely maintenance issues anytime in the near future (HVAC, roof, plumbing, and electric should be good as gold for 8-10 years).
Builder’s Warranty: A newly built home will likely include a builder’s warranty. You will want to check and ensure the warranty transfers to you (some don’t) and understand the coverage limits (read the policy carefully).
Energy Efficient: Newly built homes are often much more energy efficient than older homes. Many of them incorporate green architecture (designing efficiently to reduce energy use) to keep your wallet happy and the environment healthy. Modern methods and new building materials will keep the cool air cool (in the summer) and the warm air warm (in the winter) with proper insulation, materials, and design.
Modern Floor Plan: There will likely be larger spaces that incorporate multiple uses to create that feeling of space and luxury so highly sought after (the modern floor plan). Older homes are often compartmentalized into smaller rooms, constricting natural light and can feel cramped and boxy.
Making Memories: What can a wall remember? Well, at the very least a wall can remember the smoke and odors from previous owners. You can avoid the offending smells of the past with a newly built home … and build your own best memories in an odor-free environment: more accurately, you will craft your environment with the odors you create. Perhaps a Sunday roast or a wild mushroom & thyme risotto will be in order to set the stage just right. You will write your own history: the writing may even include marking walls or door jambs to record the annual growth of family members.
Keep It Clean: A newly built home can be a lot easier to keep clean. The newer materials and sealants keep the dirt at bay, as does the HVAC system. Older HVAC systems can be big offenders in spreading dirt and dust through a home. This is not the case with a brand new HVAC system. You will still need to clean your home, but probably not as often.
Home Insurance Discounts: Newer structures are often seen as less risky by insurance providers, and you will likely save some money on home insurance. Common discounts include new home construction discounts, new roof discounts, and home security discounts.
