New Homes: Buy New or Buy Blue
Why buy new? One word. Choices. From flooring to floor plans, energy-efficient features to flexible spaces, today’s new homes are built to strict, modern standards and offer a plethora of choices to fit your individual needs and budget.
Buying a new home has a lot of advantages for today’s homebuyers, including energy-efficient options, flexible spaces and other amenities that make them more appealing and cost-effective than ever. For example, Pardee Homes offers more than 30 standard and optional energy-efficient features to choose from, which can help you promote health and save money.
Homes built decades ago generally offer limited space and floor plan options, but today’s families value flexibility. Whether for a multi-generation family under one roof (multi-generation households on the rise, according to the U.S. Census Bureau) or a busy, single professional, today’s homes are designed with specific lifestyles in mind.
Flexible spaces, such as Pardee Homes’ GenSmart Suite, allow living areas to evolve for the needs of a family. Lower maintenance construction material and landscaping translate to less work – and more time for living your life. Plus, many builders incorporate impressive community features such as parks, pools and community centers as part of master-planned neighborhoods.
Warranties provide peace of mind
New homes come with something no used home can offer – the builder’s limited warranty, which typically covers construction, carpets and mechanical equipment. Depending on the components, warranties generally cover materials from defect from one to 10 years.
Enjoy energy savings
Due to improved windows, more efficient heating and cooling systems and better insulation technologies, new homes are much more energy efficient than homes built in earlier eras. Along with improved insulation and up-to-date appliances, that translates into lower utility bills all year round.
Avoid costly repairs
New homes must adhere to strict building codes and standards. With a new home, you don’t have to worry about replacing outdated wiring, plumbing or ancient appliances, which can be costly to replace.
Promote healthy living
High efficiency electronic air filtration systems, central vacuum systems and low-fiber flooring help reduce allergens, such as pet dander and dust in the air, contributing to better indoor air quality.
