Dallas/ Fort Worth New Homes are Different in a Good Way
Reasons Why New Homes May Make Better Economical Sense:
New Homes are typically accompanied by a one year "bumper to bumper" warranty. This transfers the cost of many repairs back to the builder or warranty company during the first year. Many buyers do inspections prior to the expiration of their first year and present repairs back to their builder under their blanket one year protection period.
New Homes typically offer a 24-month warranty for mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. Many builders allow their new home buyers to inspect their new homes 12 months after closing so the builder's warranty department can make any repairs they may have missed during construction.
New Homes are typically sold with structural warranties that cover the foundation and framing of your home for up to 10 years.
Home Owners Insurance for new homes is measurably less than premiums on older existing homes.
Taxes owned for the first year on a new home may be significantly less depending on when you close your home. New Homes closed after January 1st of the new year typically only pay property taxes on partial and or lot value. This can save a new home buyer thousands of dollars during the first partial year of ownership.
New homes are noticeably more energy efficient, saving homeowners a significant sum of money on electric, gas and water costs. Homes that cost less to heat or cool are also measurably more comfortable during the coldest and hottest times of the year and maintain a very level temperature throughout the home's interior. New homes are typically Energy Star Certified and or independent 3rd Party and contain energy efficient attic designs, radiant barriers, perforated soffits, vinyl windows, high-efficiency AC and heating systems, low flow water appliances, advanced sprinkler/ underground irrigation systems, LED Lights, and improved insulation.
You get to build your home your way. You can choose your lot, exterior elevation, floorplan options, colors, upgrades and even outdoor living area components and or "rough-out" connections for future use.
You get to inspect your home during construction it to ensure it is being built properly.
You can add protective systems like whole house water filtration to help protect your new PEX plumbing system and all plumbing components like Sink Faucets, Shower Heads, dishwashers, washing machines, Refrigerator Water dispensers, and outdoor faucets from scale build-up and premature failure, not to mention deliver healthy water for your family and eliminate chlorine exposure harm.
You can add exactly the low voltage wiring you desire. From tech panels, internet and phone wiring, to Video Network and Security Wiring. During construction is the cheapest time to add the special low voltage wiring, electrical, lighting and desired plumbing.
Sanity! Trying to sell a pre-owned home and then "time" the purchase of another pre-owned home is perhaps the most difficult real estate transaction of all. Pre-owned homes at best are a moving target, they come and go, and if you are trying to make another pre-owned homework, you may find that you can't sell your home in time and will be forced to look elsewhere or even rent as you scan the market for the right pre-owned home. If you don't need to sell to buy another home, then the process is a whole lot easier as you have more time to wait out the market until the right pre-owned home, meeting your needs is available. With pre-owned, you also run the risk of having to compete with multiple offers. Hence the reason why so many people choose to buy a new home - timing is better, you have a choice of floorplans, modifications, options and upgrades and the process a lot more controllable.
