Advantages of Buying a New Home

When shopping for a new home, homebuyers are faced with a lot of decisions including whether to purchase a new construction home or a resale. There are certain benefits for either type of home but we believe having a home that truly expresses your personal tastes is reason enough to purchase a new construction home!

Here are a few more advantages of buying a new construction home from Lexington Homes:

  1. Everything is New!
    It seems obvious but this fact is often overlooked: buying a new construction home means everything is new. From flooring, windows, appliances, even the paint! Since everything in your home is brand new, this also means your home maintenance costs will be significantly lower than in a resale home because you won’t have to worry about repairs or replacing units. And if you do need something fixed? Your builder warranty will cover it (please review your home warranty manual for more information).
  2. Customized to Fit You
    Buying a new construction home allows you to fully customize the features to fit how you live instead of trying to make an existing floorplan work for your family. Not only do you get to choose the location of your home, paint colors and even the finishing touches and options, you can even customize the floorplan! Need and extra room or prefer to change a room into a dedicated office? We can easily make that happen.
  3. Energy-Efficiency Means Savings
    New construction homes benefit from today’s energy-efficiency standards and advanced building materials meaning they are more energy-efficient than resale homes. Lexington homes are outfitted with several energy-efficient features that are designed to help conserve energy and save you money on your energy costs (you can save as much as 30% off your bills!). It can be an expensive undertaking to make an existing home compliant with today’s efficiency standards so it’s best to buy new.
  4. Compatible with Today’s Design and Technology Trends
    Homes reflect the era they were built in so it’s expected that new homes are built with today’s popular features and trends in mind. They are, on average, larger than existing homes and pre-wired for today’s advanced technology. Design-wise, new homes feature the latest design trends, including open floorplans, spacious kitchens with plenty of storage space, high ceilings, generously-sized bedrooms, bathrooms and closets, and top-of-the-line appliances.
  5. Know the Builder
    When you purchase an existing home, you may not know who originally built the home or even if they’re still in business. Without this information, it’s hard to know about the quality and reputation of the builder. When you buy a new home from Lexington Homes, you know you’re in good hands.
