Dispelling Three Myths about New Home Construction

There are common myths about owning a new home versus resale in the St. Louis area that can potentially keep you from buying the home of your dreams. “It’s too expensive”, “it will take forever to build” and “they often look cookie cutter” are three main misconceptions.

While performing your initial research, you might turn to friends, family, or the internet for help. While these are perfectly valid ways of getting information, keep in mind that you might be listening to some well-intentioned, but factually wrong advice.

The Process Can Be Lengthy

Many buyers enjoy the process of building a new home but because it can take several months, for some people this is too long to wait. Perhaps you’re about to start a new job or want to move in before the school season begins. New home builders often offer options for those who don’t have the luxury of time.

Choosing a Move-in-Ready home can provide all of the benefits of owning a new home without the wait. It will also allow you to focus less on the design and development and more on moving in and starting life in your new neighborhood.

New Homes Cost More

When comparing a new home to resale, the total cost of ownership is important to consider. An older home may seem less expensive initially, but new additions or changes needed to upgrade an existing residence can absorb significant time and funds. A new home will allow you to completely design and customize so that you’ll be happy from the day that you move in. You also won’t have to worry about unexpected and expensive repairs, such as replacing the roof or repainting the house.

Plus, the latest construction materials and energy saving features can provide savings on utilities over an older home. Rolwes new homes also provide you with a 10-year warranty, which will give you peace of mind that repairs may be covered over the long term.

New Homes Look the Same

Reputable builders create communities with curb appeal that establishes a neighborhood feel without looking cookie cutter. Integrating various floorplans, along with the ability to customize both interiors and exteriors to your unique tastes, provides the individuality in a new home community. In addition, a number of options for siding, windows, doors, and landscaping add to the uniqueness of each individual residence.
