New vs. Established Homes - Why build new?
So, you've decided to ease up on the smashed avo' and invest your hard-earned dollars into something a little more permanent... good for you!
Now it's time to start thinking about your wishlist for your new home and comparing your options on one of the biggest investments you will probably make in your life.
One of the biggest questions many first home buyers have is: build new, or buy established?
DESIGN YOUR DREAM HOME YOUR WAY
Don’t settle for someone else’s choices when you can select your own design that meets your needs. Then you also get to choose your own cabinets, countertops, appliances, carpets and flooring! While you’re at it, you can choose gorgeous bathroom and kitchen fixtures, lighting and other options that you love. Your new home will reflect your style, not someone else’s taste. Make it your own creation.
ALL NEW, UNDER WARRANTY – YOU CAN’T PUT A PRICE ON PEACE OF MIND
A used home has worn out products that may soon need replacing. Your new home - and the products that comprise it - are brand-new and all under warranty. What’s the cost to replace a roof, appliances, countertops or a water heater on a used home? Those components of your new home feature the latest designs and building materials and should offer you years of comfort and hassle-free enjoyment.
ENERGY AND COST SAVINGS
Today’s new homes are far more energy efficient than homes built just five years ago. Versus homes built ten or 20 years ago, its game over, advantage new. Why settle for drafty, energy-wasting, single-pane windows in a used home? With the right solar orientation you can save even more energy and money when heating or cooling your home.
New cars today are computer designed and computer-equipped. That’s why they perform much more reliably than a car that’s 15 or 20 years old. Homes are the same. Today’s new homes have open floor plans and high ceilings that reflect the way we live today. They’re also made of cutting edge building products that require less care and maintenance. Another plus? The latest building systems and components are designed and engineered to work together.
Most new homes are built in master-planned communities with amenities near [or even within] the estate. Parks for kids to play at, Primary and High Schools within walking distance, childcare and shopping centres close by.
THAT NEW HOME FEEL
A used home was someone else’s dream, not yours. It reflects their choices and family memories. You may learn to love avocado-green appliances, and you may be willing to scrub stained countertops or grease encrusted ovens and cooktops - but nothing compares to that never lived in feel.
COMFORT AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Purchasing an existing property can put your health and the health of your family at risk. Carpets that are years old, mouldy ceilings and walls and use of old and unsafe building materials pollute the air. The cost? Quality of life and enjoying your time spent at home. New homes feature brand new carpets, fresh paint and building practices that comply with today’s building regulations ensuring you and your loved ones are breathing fresh air every day.
After all, when was the last time you went to a department store and selected used clothes? Or visited a car dealer and paid more for a used car than a new car? New homes offer the latest designs, style, comfort and quality. They provide a care-free lifestyle so that you can enjoy your home, not work on it.
