You have decided that this is the year to purchase your first home, but you are unsure whether you should buy an existing home or build a new home. Because the process and timeframe can be very different, a final decision will depend on your personal situation. However, you might be surprised to learn the many ways in which building a home might be the way to go.
Get Exactly What You Want
Building a home means that you are much more likely to get exactly what you want—and the space you need—within your budget limits. Existing homes may have space and upgrades that you are not interested in, but have to pay for anyway; or the layout may not be perfectly suited for your family’s lifestyle. Building a home allows you to select the floor plan and customize it with the upgrades and features that are important to you.
Less Maintenance and Repairs
The primary benefit to building a home is that everything is brand new and under warranty, which eliminates significant maintenance costs for an extended period of time. No need to worry about those unexpected costs—like a new furnace or new roof—often associated with homeownership.
Healthier and More Efficient
New homes have increased efficiency due both to the efficiency of the installed heating equipment, technology, as well as, the quality of the building materials. Better efficiency is not only good for the environment, but can save you money on utility bills each month. Moreover, new homes are less likely to carry risks of health concerns from toxic materials used in the building process, and the materials are oftentimes better for the environment.
Rapid Growth of Your Investment
In many cases, a home purchase is the single largest investment that a person will make throughout their life. With a newly built home, there is an opportunity to grow that investment more rapidly with significant profits from the resale of the home.
While building a home may take longer than purchasing an existing home, working with a reputable builder like Trinity Homes can help mitigate the risks of your home going over budget or taking longer than expected. There is nothing quite like the emotional connection to your home that you helped to design and build, so contact Trinity Homes today to get started on your family’s forever home.
