Benefits of Buying a New Home In Northern Virginia
There are two kinds of new homes; new homes that are built to sell to interested buyers and custom homes that a buyer decides the layout and finishes before it is even built. There are benefits to both options!
Homes that are either built to order or already built have some customization options! Built to order homes have a ton of options for buyers. They may be able to choose the layout of the rooms, their favorite flooring and even what lot they want the home built on. Homes that are already built still may have some customization options like flooring, counter tops, paint, and appliances. This can ultimately save you some money by being able to pick your preferences up front instead of having to remodel another home.
So this one is obvious! A new home is new, therefore there are no fixes like needing a new water heater or a new roof! This also can save you money and stress upfront because you know you can rely on the appliances and roof for a long time to come. All the appliances are still under warranty and most builders offer a home builder warranty to give you even more peace of mind.
With many new builds, there are many energy efficient options that are popular and almost standard in this day and age. Everything from energy efficient heating/cooling, windows, to appliances!
UPDATED CODES AND TECHNOLOGY:
When you are buying a new home, you do not even have to think about things like lead paint and asbestos. There are also new fangled options like energy efficient heating/cooling, better air quality because of cleaner, organic materials used. Extra safety is also a beneifit, found in things like the latest circuit breakers and garage door settings that can tell if there is an object or child underneath before closing.
Many new homes are built in communities with great amenities like playgrounds, gyms, pools, close to shopping, clubhouses, park settings and more! There may be an awesome location just waiting to be built on!
