Do I build or buy?  There is an allure to new construction. The decision to purchase a home is an important milestone in one's life, and with it comes the choice between new construction or buying a resale home. While both options have their merits, the allure of new construction has surged in recent years. Some of the factors that make this choice desirable include customization, modern amenities, energy efficiency, and reduced maintenance.  

Customization and personalization are one of the biggest advantages of the building.  Buyers have the chance to work closely with the builder and have input into layout, designs, paint colors, cabinets, floors, and just about everything if you are on the front end of the build.  Of course, there are extents to what each builder will actually allow.  But for the most part, builders like to be able to work closely with their clients.

Modern amenities and designs are also a point that sets new construction apart.  New builds often incorporate the latest trends and innovations in home design, featuring open floor plans, high ceilings, and spacious rooms.  They frequently come with high-end state-of-the-art appliances, cutting-edge technology, and smart home integration.

When purchasing a new construction home, you are purchasing a brand new product with a builders home warranty and no one else's problems!  You can count on reduced maintenance issues and no issues from a previous owner not maintaining the home. 

Buying new construction is just a whole different animal than resale.  By no means am I saying new construction is the way you should go.  It's not for everyone.  There are plenty of wonderful resale houses out there as well.  Either way, our team is out there to help you make quality decisions that work for you.  You can find up on the web or call us at 423-677-6677 or team # 423-453-3109.  Let us help you make the right decision.
