Newly built homes are fun to plan and have many advantages... 
fewer hassles, higher efficiency, and increased customization are just a few

5 Top Reasons given to buy New Construction
 
 
1. Nothing better than "NEW!"
Let's face it, there is something special about new. A new car, a new bicycle, new carpeting or draperies, new computer, new remodel... the list goes on. This is the number one reason given by people when asked why they purchased a new construction home over an older home!
The truth is there are many benefits to buying new. Here are just a few more:
 
2. Customizing your Home the way you want it
Many home builders allow buyers to participate in the process of designing their home which helps create a living space specifically tailored to the consumer's tastes. New home buyers can choose their favorite type of flooring, or pick the color of the paint- or sometimes even change the building plan to better accommodate their needs and desires. Buyers moving into a subdivision can pick the lot they like best. There really is a lot of flexibility for new home buyers to put their personal signature on the home.
 
3. Higher Energy Efficiency

New building codes have mandated increasingly higher energy efficiency standards then homes built just 10 years ago. From attic and wall insulation to windows and doors, new homes are typically far superior. Newly constructed homes use energy more efficiently in two ways: First, they tend to have a tighter-sealed building envelope that helps prevent conditioned air—cool air in the summer, warm air in the winter—from escaping. Features that create this envelope do include higher-efficiency insulation, doors, and windows. Gone are the days of the single pane window from 20 years ago … now you are starting to see triple- and quadruple-pane windows. These are windows that are designed to really minimize the transfer of heat either from warm to cold or vice versa, and they of course will help the building envelope.

4. Higher End Mechanics and "Green" Appliances
Higher end, energy-efficient mechanics of a house help reduce utility bills for new home buyers. 
New constructed homes often include green systems and appliances like high efficiency stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters, furnaces, or air conditioning units that homes built years ago might not. The conditioning equipment of a home is usually considered to be one of the larger energy consumption devices, but certainly those kitchen appliances matter. Existing homeowners can always retrofit their property or buy higher efficiency appliances, but doing so requires a significant expense.
 
5. Less Maintenance and Fewer Repair Costs
The features of new constructed homes should also hold up better than those of existing homes, which may have experienced years of wear and tear. Many times people who buy previously owned houses find that the carpet needs to be replaced, or the interior of the home needs to be repainted, or it needs new appliances, or the flooring is shot. When you buy a new construction home in today's market, it really is brand new! Also when you buy a used house you don't know what you are getting and you may have to do a lot of maintenance. Many premier builders today use composite products for a home's exterior trim instead of wood, which could rot or need repainting. Builders are trying to look down the road and make things as easy as possible for the homeowner so they can enjoy living there and not have to be saddled with maintenance and expensive repairs.
