New home vs. Used home

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate

If you are struggling with the choice of either purchasing a new home or a existing home. Here are differences between the two you might want to consider.


You Personalize -You design a home to reflect your individual style

Full Warranty - a peace of mind that your new home will last

Energy Saving- Newer energy efficient technology for energy savings

Lower Interest Rates - Better financing options with the ability to lock in your rate while you build, plus lower your payments

Current Plans - A great selection of floorplans designed for the way you live 


You Inherit - You settle for someone else's choice, not your own style

One Year Warranty - Most homes are covered for only minor repairs for the first year

Outdated Technology - Older homes have higher energy cost and lack todays features

Higher Interest Rates - Conventional loans can't compare and cost more over the length of loan

Outdated Plans - Smaller rooms, insufficient storage, lower ceilings
