When you’re looking for your dream house
in Salt Lake City, you should weigh the pros and cons of purchasing a new home or renovating an older one. Sure, you could learn to love your outdated countertops while you slowly remodel, but you don’t have to. With a new build, you can get all the character and customization that comes with a renovation. Here are the top 6 reasons most buyers choose new homes over resales.
When you purchase a new home through Hamlet Homes, you can choose
the floor plan and customize the design features, including your favorite flooring, cabinets, countertops, appliances, paint color, among others. Depending on availability, you can even choose the plot that best suits your family’s needs. This flexibility simply can’t be found in renovations, especially for the same dollar amount.
You can be sure that your new home will utilize the latest technology and energy efficiency. Building standards have been raised multiple times over the years regarding energy efficiency, so homebuilders are installing multi-paned windows, green appliances, and more insulation.
New homes aren’t subjected to years of wear and tear like older homes, so you won’t need to make as many repairs. Even with multiple upgrades, you’ll still be seeing the need to replace features in your used home — like the furnace, plumbing, or even structural damage — all of which can be costly and time consuming.
Many homebuyers will choose new homes for the community amenities
. They usually will feature clubhouses, community centers, and pools. Some are located near popular shopping centers or in premier school districts. All of these factors are should heavily weighed by the buyer.
Consider the cost of replacing the water heater, furnace, roof, or any appliances before purchasing a resale because they will likely need to be replaced in the near future. With new builds, all appliances and products are new and under warranty, so you will spend years in your dream home before needing any upgrades.
There are many mortgage financing perks available from a homebuilder. Be sure to use the mortgage lender who works with the contractor to get the best rates and incentives. New homes come equipped with the latest technology, design trends, and are fully customizable. To learn more about new home construction in Salt Lake City, call (801) 281-2223 and speak to
