Why Should You Purchase a New Home?

July 31, 2017 4:40 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Congratulations, you’ve decided that it’s time to purchase a home. But you’re left with the choice to either purchase a resale home or a brand new home. Though there are pros to buying a used, there are definitely wonderful advantages to purchasing a new home instead. This is why you should buy new.

Buying a new home means just that – it’s new! Your home will be move-in ready and you can start living life the way you want right away. Your new home will be built and customized to match your lifestyle. You will choose the finishes and fixtures that best suit you. You’ll select the home design of your choice, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms instead of having that decision already made for you. You can also easily customize your floor plan for a home office, nursery, in-law suite, walk-in closet that you always wanted or even a home gym. When buying a new home with Level Homes, the premier builder of new homes in Raleigh NC, you will get an individual appointment with a Design Studio Consultant to select the finishes. New homes also come with beautiful open floor plans designed for the way you want to live. The living room flows nicely into the kitchen and breakfast area so you can cook, eat, entertain, assist the kids with homework, or look at TV without any wall obstructions. On the contrary, older homes tend to have constrained layouts with boxy rooms that are sometimes smaller in size than what you will find in a new home.

Since your home is new, no maintenance is required so you won’t have to worry about fixing, hammering, painting, or replacing anything. All of your appliances, heating and cooling, and plumbing are new and these won’t have to be repaired for at least a few years. Plus, new homes come with manufacturer warranties so you are protected if anything breaks or goes wrong during that time period. On the other hand, when it comes to a used home there’s always more than the sales price that you have to worry about. Your “new” home can also become a money pit with existing issues the previous homeowner never fixed. This can include everything from having to fix or replace the water heater, appliances, the roof, or getting your house up to code from “additions” that aren’t within building code standards. Newly constructed homes are also more energy efficient than existing homes with more energy efficient building material and green appliances. At Level Homes, our homes come standard with programmable thermostats, 50 gallon gas water heater, efficient and economical heating and cooling with dual zones (14 SEER), R-15 insulation in walls and R-38 in ceilings, and so much more.

As you can see there are many advantages to purchasing a new home over a resale home. Plus, you will be the first person to ever live in your home and therefore won’t have to worry about lingering stains or odors left behind from the previous owners. You just can’t beat that! And since you are in the market for a new home we hope that you will consider building a home with Level Homes. Contact us today at 919-258-2700 to start living the dream in one of our spacious new homes in Raleigh NC.
