The Benefits of New Construction Over Existing Homes


When it comes to home ownership, new construction has many benefits. According to a recent survey by Trulia, twice as many people prefer to buy a new home over an existing home. The top reasons noted were the opportunity to customize and the availability of modern features. Here is  more detail on some of the factors that tip the balance in favor of buying a newly-built home from Landmark 24 Homes.


You’re First

Like the famous “new car smell,” a new house gives the owner the ineffable satisfaction of being the first one to live there, of owning something without the flaws, wear, damage, or decorating faux pas that result from years of use by someone else. With new construction homes, you can choose the color palette, surfaces, and materials that appeal to you. There is no need to swing a hammer, tear down and reconstruct. Your new home is a fresh canvas waiting for your creativity to make it come alive as a space for family living according to your own vision, with your personal touches for your lifestyle.

New homes built by Landmark 24 also offer the financial benefit of being virtually maintenance free for the first several years of ownership. This is ensured with new appliances, plumbing, heating and air systems, siding and roofing.


Lifestyle Demands

New construction homes are built for how we live today. They include modern features that older properties often lack, like spacious eat-in kitchens, large walk-in closets, and master suites with attached master baths. Furthermore, electrical systems meet current building standards and are more energy-efficient, with enough power to support the appliances along with and all of your electronic devices.  New construction homes are likely also have cable- and internet-ready and are able to accommodate the latest technology such as home alarms and automation. Some of these features are even be installed during construction, eliminating the need to bust holes into walls to get your infrastructure in place.
