Building a new house sounds like a daunting task for home buyers with years of experience and a hefty wallet but the tides are changing.
First-time home buyers are building, instead of buying and their satisfaction is proof this is a financial decision turning out positive results.
1. Making a Great Deal:
New homes communities offer definitive price tags on their residences, a concept that many find appealing when trying to budget for a big-ticket item like a new house. Most communities are clear and concise about the price of the home as well as the features that come with the base cost. Understand what’s included to ensure a great deal.
2. Floorplan Choices:
Once you’ve found the community, you don’t have to settle for what’s currently available. New homes communities offer many floorplans, with a wide range of designs to meet your families’ lifestyle. Mattamy Homes offers more than 40 designs — check out the RiverTown floorplans online prior to your visit, and give yourself plenty of time to tour all of the decorated models when you visit. There’s 11 beautiful homes that can help you make your decision.
3. Innovation and Warranties:
Building a home ensures the dependability of the home for years to come. First-time homebuyers should not be burdened with a home that needs maintenance. Between work and children, families do not have the time, energy or budget to deal with unexpected problems that come with a fixer-upper. New homes are equipped with state-of-the-art appliances that are typically more energy efficient and cost effective.
4. No Regrets:
In a Zillow Digs survey, 4 out of 10 of all homeowners have done a “do-it-yourself” project and wish they had not. Nearly a quarter of these people say a house project costed more than they expected. When building a new home, you can work closely with the contractor to ensure your satisfaction with the finished home. When it comes to style, companies like Mattamy Homes offer Design Studio assistance to assist in the selections that personalize your residence. Homes can come in packages from grandiose to minimalist as evidence of the variety of architecture by Mattamy Homes.
With the advantages of new homes far exceeding the risks and work involved in pre-existing homes, there is certain to be a continued wave of first-time home buyers choosing to build. There is a home just waiting for any homebuyer in pursuit of an abode that meets their needs, blows away their expectations, and becomes the epicenter of a family’s most cherished memories for years to come.
