The Benefits of Buying a New Home vs. Pre-Owned HomeJune 12, 2020
If you are thinking about moving, chances are you may have asked yourself, “what are the benefits of buying a new home” or “is it better to buy or build a house.” While there is much to consider when choosing between a new-build versus a preowned property, it is important to evaluate all of the variables before making a decision.
There are several reasons you may prefer to build from the ground up or purchase a newly built home. For example, you can work with the builder to choose design elements—like flooring, cabinet colors and kitchen backsplash— that match your life and style. Depending upon the stage of construction, you can personalize your home floor plan to include a fireplace, covered patio and outdoor kitchen, or even an additional bathroom and garage space.
Existing properties, on the other hand, are typically found in neighborhoods that have been around for awhile. They offer established landscaping, amenities, schools and shopping.
The decision to purchase a new or pre-owned home does not have to be stressful, though! Take a look at the infographic below to learn more about the advantages of each type of property.
