If you're an active adult thinking of buying a home for sale in Vero Beach, you may be deciding between new construction or an older home. This is a concern many over 55+ adult buyers face, one that merits considerable attention.
Why buy new construction?
There are some very obvious reasons why buyers prefer new construction. Who wouldn't be excited to live in a house that's shiny and new?
Here are a few reasons why buyers love new construction:
1. It’s Move-in ready
Buyers love the convenience of new homes. Given the choice between a home where all you need to do is move in and a home where some minor repairs are needed, you'd almost surely pick the new construction.
2. Everything is new
From the walls to the floors, to the different amenities, everything is brand new. It's like your birthday every day for the first few days in the house. You get to discover the different secrets of the home, which can be really exciting.
3. No repair expenses
If you're already spending money on the house, would you like to spend some more on repairs and maintenance? If you have the option of a new construction home where all you need to do is move-in, the better.
4. A more suitable modern layout
Old homes tend to have more rooms and separate living spaces. New construction homes feature an open floor concept which allows an easy flow and makes it easy to entertain guests.
5. Energy savings
With the continuous improvement of technology, new construction is more energy efficient than homes constructed five or ten years ago. This means new homes save more energy, which in turn saves you more money.
6. The option to choose
One of the most exciting things about buying new construction is the opportunity to personalize the look of the home. You decide the finish of the floor, the kitchen, the walls, and more.
