Why Buy New vs. Used
So, if you’re trying to choose between buying a New Home or purchasing a used home, there are several things you must consider before making that decision. First of all, the benefits of a New Home far outweigh the benefits of used. We’ll point out a few for you.
New Homes are built to current building codes, energy codes and safety regulations. New Homes are inspected several times, by local building inspectors, throughout the entire building process. Plumbing, electrical, HVAC and structural components are current and very energy-efficient, which equates to a lower monthly cost for utilities. Used homes, especially over five years old, are less energy-efficient and more costly to operate.
A New Home offers you years of very minimal repair and refinishing projects. All New Homes (in Georgia) come with a mandated one-year Builder’s Warranty, it’s the law. This warranty covers 99% of the entire home.
In purchasing a New Home, you know exactly what you are getting, there are no surprises! Buying a used home brings with it a greater degree of risk, because of the sometimes hidden and the unknown.
When purchasing a New Home you are starting with a totally clean slate. And, in a lot of cases, you are allowed to put your personal touches on the finishes of your New Home. There is zero-percent of someone else’s leftovers to deal with. And, let’s be honest, a New Home just smells a lot nicer!
The smart, worry-free choice for you..…Buy New.
