New vs Resale: Why You Should Choose New

When you are looking to buy a home, there is always a decision between going the resale route or purchasing brand new. Buying a new build presents a number of advantages to first-time homebuyers and seasoned homeowners alike. If you’re looking into buying a brand new home, here’s just some of the benefits:

Getting what you want: besides having the ability to choose the home model that best suits your needs, you also have the opportunity to make upgrades to many of the features inside the home, so you’re moving into the exact home you desire.
Quality design and construction: a lot of time and thought goes into the functionality and style of new homes, and the solid construction and attention to detail are the professional standard new homeowners are accustom to. New homes also use the most advanced building products and materials, ensuring long-term satisfaction and durability.
Energy-efficiency: thanks to advances in construction and design, everything from the building materials to the heating systems are more energy-efficient, helping you save money (and the environment). You can also look forward to clean indoor air quality in a new home, as you won’t have to deal with any lingering odours or mould from past owners.
Warranty: one of the best advantages to buying a brand new home, is the peace of mind that comes with a warranty. For example, at Genesis Builders, we stand behind our work and offer a comprehensive, third party warranty program to all buyers.
Financial planning: with new homes, you can plan your financial future with confidence. With everything in your home brand new, you’ll have no major repairs or replacements for years to come.
