Home buyers planning to buy a brand-new house or condominium often cite energy-efficiency,
open layout, a warranty, and being able to select appliances, flooring, paint colors and other
design elements as factors driving their choice to buy new. But there are other reasons that
buyers can be drawn to a new house that aren’t so obvious.
A brand-new community is one of the built-in benefits of many new homes. When families move
into a subdivision at the same time, often lasting bonds of friendship and neighborliness are
formed right away. Nobody is the “new kid on the block,” and many new communities host block
parties in new developments to help owners meet and connect. Popular amenities like pools,
walking trails and courts for tennis and basketball offer additional opportunities for interaction
among neighbors of all ages. Often new communities are comprised of home owners in the
same stage of life, such as young families or active retirees, so neighbors can get to know each
other through carpools, PTA meetings, tennis matches or golf games.
Hosting a party in an older home can be a challenge because smaller, distinct rooms make it
difficult to entertain guests in one large space. Today’s home plans are responding to home
buyer preferences with layouts featuring more open spaces and rooms that flow into each other
more easily, like the popular great room. While you are in the kitchen preparing dinner, you can
still interact with guests enjoying conversation in the family room without feeling closed off. The
feeling of spaciousness in today’s new-home layouts often is enhanced the higher ceilings and
additional windows that bringing in more light than you would find in an older home.
For some buyers, parking the car in a sparkling-clean garage or being the first to cook a dinner
in a brand-new kitchen is part of the appeal of new construction. In addition, you won’t have to
spend time stripping dated wallpaper or repainting to suit your own sense of style. You can
create your own home décor from the get-go!
The advantages of being the first owner of a home extend to the outdoors. Instead of inheriting
inconveniently or precariously placed trees, or having to tear up overgrown shrubs, you can
design and plant the lawn and garden you want.
Homes built in the 1960’s and earlier were wired much differently than houses today. Builders
had no way of anticipating the invention of high-definition televisions, DVRs and computers that
we enjoy today – and the very different electrical requirements they would introduce. New
homes can accommodate advanced technologies like structured wiring, security systems and
sophisticated lighting plans, and can be tailored to meet the individual home owner’s needs.
Anyone who has ever lived in an older home can also attest to the fact that there are never
enough outlets, inside or out! New-home builders plan for the increased number and type of
electronics and appliances used by today’s families, so you can safely operate a wine cooler,
Christmas lights or your computer.
