Why Are More People Buying New Homes Versus Pre-Owned Homes?

Real Estate Agent with Citiwide Alliance Realty

Why are more people buying new homes versus pre-owned homes? That is a great question! I’m sure I could list many great reasons to buy a new home in 2018. Saving money and getting exactly what you want is just the beginning. Here are the top 4 reasons why you should consider buying a New Home in the Springtown ISD area.

Reason #1 Building Equity

Home ownership means the money you spend on your housing builds equity.  Not to a landlord or management company.  You could use this equity if you sell or choose to borrow against the equity.


Reason #2 Design Your Dream Home Your Way

Why settle for someone vision of the ideal home or an older home with issues? Use your own vision or work with our local builder with an unfinished spec. You can be selective and choose your favorite cabinets, counter tops, appliances, carpets and flooring. You don’t have to stop there! Choose gorgeous bath and kitchen fixtures, lighting and other options that you love. The style of your new home will be yours and yours alone. 


Reason #3 Choose A Floor plan That Meets Your Needs

Want a master bedroom on the first floor? It's yours. With massive his and hers walk-in closets? Done! Want high ceilings and a luxurious, resort-style master bath? Very popular design today is the double shower in the master. Perhaps you'd like a sitting room with a fireplace in your owner's suite or French doors that open to your private patio or the pool? Barn doors inside? It's easy, when you build your master suite your way. 


Reason #4 All New - Under Warranty & Energy Savings

Today, homes are built more energy efficient.

A used home likely has issues. Items that may soon need replacing. Your new home,  and the products that it's built of,  are brand-new and under warranty. What's the cost to replace a roof, appliances, counter tops or a water heater on a used home? Those components of your new home feature the latest designs as well as building materials  offering you years of comfort and enjoyment before needing replacement.  If you happen to have an issue simply contact your warranty department for quick assistance.


A pre owned, used home belonged to someone else. Reflecting their choices and family needs. If you prefer that never lived-in feeling, Give me a call.  We have three and four bedroom homes in Springtown. Some homes are single story and others are two story. We have spec homes, homes that have been started or possibly in production.  We also offer home sites - with 1 plus acres and in small subdivisions.  Choose your own home site.  Meet with our design team and create your special personal oasis.

Melissa all good reasons, we have such a huge shortage of new construction....mostly because the rules are so challenging for builders to get a new house built... so most of our buyers are forced to buy an older home...Endre

Enjoyed reading your carefully prepared explanation! Having always lived in areas built in the 1900-1910 or 1930-1940, a new build was never an option! We had to add the energy features! All the best - Lynn

PS Well, I must admit, however, in the past decade, many perfectly serviceable homes in both areas were razed for new construction! L.

All great reasons, Melissa, to buy new construction! Those warranties are wonderful - I have a buyer who is purchasing a resale right now and we have had to request a structural repair from the builder. Absolutely ZERO issues - done and DONE! I love when new construction gives even in resales! LOL

Happy Wednesday!
