Advantages of Buying a New Home
When you buy a brand new home, you get the best of both worlds — all the traditional value you expect in a home, plus the advantages that only a newly built home can provide. Whether it’s added flexibility, efficiency or modern conveniences, there are many reasons that being the first owner of a home makes more sense than ever.
Location. Location. Location.
Choosing the best place to live and the right style of home, right for your family.
You are able to upgrade or choose certain items such as paint colours, flooring, cabinets, plumbing and electrical fixtures. There is something to be said for building a brand new home into an expression of you, reflecting your personal tastes, style and flair, and containing every modern convenience
Up-to-date with the latest building codes and practices.
The latest building codes, electrical and energy-efficiency standards will be applied. They are often more energy-efficient because of technological improvements to heating and cooling systems, construction technology, insulation, glass and so forth. These improvements can save owners money in utility costs.
Lower maintenance costs.
Thanks to vast improvements in the efficiency and durability of building materials, new homes don’t require as much upkeep as older homes. Everything included in your new home is new and many items are covered by a builder or manufacturer warranty.
New homes come with a complete warranty that covers everything on the house, inside and out. A home builder’s warranty is available for the first two years and is backed by Tarion. This can be important if a major system such as plumbing or heating breaks down.
A community of new homes allows for the planned development of the lifestyle within it. Whether it is active adults, or families with young children, new home buyers know they’ll have something in common with their neighbors when they move in. Being a founding member of your neighborhood provides exciting opportunities for involvement and a chance to experience community growth with those around you.
Depending on your builder you may have to pay extra for closing costs for hydro meter, sod and tree planting or to pave your driveway. Make sure you know exactly what’s included in the price of your home. At Midhaven Homes there are no extra charges!
