There are a few drawbacks to not buying new but nothing that cannot be overcome.  When we bought our current home it was not my choice but my wife did not want to wait to have  a new home built. We gained at the least over $100,000 in outside plantings and vegetation some of which were worth thousands (Dwarf Japanese maples x3).

The kitchen and baths were redone and the entire home was bought for less than we could have built after our inside work
