Buying Your First Home: 7 Reason to Buy NEW!
When looking to buy your first home, one of the questions you’ll ask yourself is “Do I buy resale, or new?”
While there are certainly lots of great homes in the resale market, the inefficient design and previous wear and tear of used homes often lead to downsides such as frequent maintenance, higher electricity bills, and interior design choices that make you go “what on earth were the past owners thinking?” No, thanks.
Here are our top 7 reasons for buying a brand-new home.
1. It’s your dream home, make it yours!
For most Australians, buying your first home is the biggest investment you will make. Given the size of the investment, don’t you want something that is truly yours and that you had input on? Avoid your first few months swapping out the cabinets, repainting the bedrooms and pulling up ugly carpet. Get everything you want in your home by working with your new home specialist so that it’s exactly how you want it the day you move in!
2. Choose a layout for your specific needs
Always wanted a walk-in-robe? Done. Need a little extra storage for a home office? No problem. Looking for a more open concept? Let’s make it happen. When you have input in the initial design, you get the perfect home for your specific needs.
3. No maintenance for years!
Windows, doors, roof, patio...a house has many components! If you’re buying a used house, chances are that at least one part of the house is due for maintenance in the very near future, and that can be expensive. By buying new you will likely have many years maintenance (and headache) free!
4. Energy efficiency
With modern design, homes built today are substantially more efficient than homes built in the past few decades. Both your wallet and the environment will thank you for purchasing a greener home.
5. Safety and peace of mind
Find comfort in knowing that there aren’t any electrical, plumbing, or Building issues that the previous owner swept under the rug. Buying new means that you're protected by a statutory warranty that covers maintenance issues up to 90 days after completion and major issues for up to 6 years and a half years.
6 That new home smell
Well okay, not just the smell but that new home, never-lived-in feel! Don’t spend your time hypothesizing about how that stain on the ceiling came to be and instead spend your time making unforgettable memories in a dream home that has only ever been yours.
