Why a Newly Built Home Should Be Your Top Choice Investment

Why a Newly Built Home Should Be Your Top Choice Investment

If you’re looking to buy a house, you may find today’s limited supply of homes available for sale challenging. When housing inventory is as low as it is right now, it can feel like an uphill battle to find the perfect home for you because there just isn’t much to choose from. If you need to open up your pool of options, it may be time to consider a newly built home.

 According to the latest data from the U.S. Census, there’s positive news regarding new home construction. When you look at the first three months of this year, you’ll find:

✅More new homes were completed and are ready to sell. This gives you more move-in-ready options for your search.

✅Builders broke ground and started construction on more single-family homes. This means there are more homes intended for one household in the beginning stages of construction, allowing you to customize one to your liking.

The number of permits for building new single-family homes ticked up. This shows builders are ramping up to start on even more home construction soon.

And, while this is all good news for broadening your options for your home search, there are other perks that come with considering a newly built home.

1. Customization 🤩

When you buy a new home under construction, you can tailor it to your unique needs and taste. Bankrate says

Building means customizing. . . . instead of wishing your home had a certain kind of flooring, a sunroom, or some other special amenity, you’ll be able to tailor the property to your exact needs.

2. Brand New Everything ✨

Another perk of a new home is that nothing in the house is used. It’s all brand new and uniquely yours from day one.

3. Minimal Repairs 🔧

And, because everything is new, you’ll likely find there are fewer maintenance and repair needs upfront. As Realtor.com explains

“. . . if something does go wrong with your new home, not only are there likely some manufacturer warranties in place, but many builders also include additional home warranties . . .”

4. Energy Efficiency 🔋

Lastly, building a home gives you the opportunity to incorporate more energy-efficient options that can help lower your costs over time – which can feel especially important when inflation’s raising many of the costs around you.

Bottom Line

If you’re having trouble finding your dream home in today’s market, it may be time to consider newly built homes as an option. Partner with a real estate professional to learn more about what’s available in your local area.
