Home-buying can be an intimidating process, with multiple choices at every stage.
Should you purchase inside the city or in a quaint suburb? Should you buy an older home or a newer home? Big yard or small yard? Brick or siding?
The choices and possibilities seem endless.
One of the bigger dilemmas for new home buyers is whether to settle for an older home or choose new construction. Older homes, after all, have character and history. Oftentimes, they offer design features that are cherished, historical and charming. Sometimes, however, a new construction home is the best choice. Here are some of the pros to buying a Nashville new construction home.
No Scary Surprises
When you’re renting, costly repairs are the responsibility of your landlord.
When you own your own home, however, those costly repairs are your responsibility. For new homeowners who haven’t built a savings safety net, purchasing an older home can be a big gamble.
Plumbing issues, foundation issues, HVAC malfunctions, and roof problems can pop up unexpectedly in older homes, demanding repairs that can costs thousands of dollars.
A new home has brand new wiring, plumbing, structures, appliances, and fixtures. This dramatically reduces the likelihood of costly repairs for at least a few years. For many homeowners, that peace of mind is priceless.
Customization + Personalization
A new construction home is the perfect answer if you’ve always dreamt of a home with custom features.
New construction projects can be tailored to your needs. Choose the paint colors, the layout, the materials–you name it. A new construction home will have your personal tastes in every room.
It’s important to remember, however, that not every new construction builder offers truly custom options for a new home. If you speak with a new construction contractor who only offers a few pre-set floorplans and options–and who strongly discourages changes–you should probably continue your search.
