Why You Should Consider Buying a New Build Home

What if you could have the perfect house? The layout of your dreams, a magazine-worthy kitchen, amenities to suit your lifestyle and all the finishing touches to round out the ideal place to call home. If this sounds like heaven to you, it may be time to consider buying or building a custom home. Read on for 5 more reasons to explore a new construction opportunity. 


CUSTOMIZATION
With a new construction home, you get to decide exactly the vibe and features you want for your new home. Incorporate the closet of your dreams, add modern technology for security and entertainment and start fresh in a home painted and accented to your vision.


ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Older houses often feature the use of less efficient appliances and energy systems. As systems weaken, they can create issues such as heat escape or increased water usage which impact your monthly energy bills. New construction homes are built with the most modern operating systems and materials - keeping your house comfortable, your lights bright, and your utility bills lower.


LOWER MAINTENANCE NEEDS
With any home, preventative maintenance is truly the best practice to ensure you don’t run into costly repairs. New construction offers brand new installations by professionals to ensure you start your home journey in a home that’s in immaculate condition. You won’t have to worry about replacing large items such as appliances, your furnace or the roof for many years to come.


RESALE VALUE
While buying an older property could give you vintage charm, older homes can have higher upkeep costs which means you lose value on your home when selling. With a new construction home, you're buying something that requires little upgrading and will very likely hold or increase in value, particularly if you plan on staying in the property for a few years or more.


WARRANTY
With a new construction home in British Columbia, you are protected under the Homeowner Protection Act which states that new homes built in B.C. by licensed residential builders must be covered by mandatory, third-party home warranty insurance. Certain aspects of the build are covered for 2, 5 and 10 years – read more about this program here

From less expensive insurance and expansive technology options, to modern floor plans and financing incentives, there are so many reasons to consider new home construction.
