Approximately twice as many people prefer buying a new home compared to an existing home. ‘New’ is defined as a brand new property that has never been lived in, or a home purchased in the pre-construction phase. There are many reasons people prefer to buy a new home, including:
With a brand new home, you’re able to pick and choose exactly what you want, so your home can be built with your personal taste, family size and lifestyle in mind.
With a new home, there’s no work to be done. No weekends spent ‘fixing things up’. You don’t have to lift a finger. And that’s a big bonus if you lead a busy lifestyle.
New homes come with the latest design features that today’s lifestyle demands, like open plan living, entertainer kitchens, walk-in wardrobes, large master suites and multiple bathrooms. Many older homes simply don’t have these luxuries.
A major financial benefit of having a new home is that you don’t have to do much maintenance. With brand new appliances, plumbing, roofing and paintwork, your home should be repair-free for quite a few years.
As new homes incorporate the latest energy-efficient building materials, lighting and appliances, you will probably enjoy lower utility bills.
New homes are usually equipped with the latest technology already built-in, such as alarm systems, internet wiring and cable – saving you time, money and holes in the walls.
As your house is a new build, it’s all yours. No one has ever lived there before, so you can make it well and truly your own. And that’s a great feeling!
