If you are planning on buying a residential property, one of the most important decisions you’ll be making is whether to buy a new construction home, or to purchase a house that has been previously owned.
There are a distinct set of advantages to buying new. This choice provides the option to work with a builder who uses money-saving, energy-efficient materials. Buying new also allows you to customize the property, choose an ideal location, save time and money on maintenance & repairs and to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing the building is outfitted with state-of-the-art safety and security features.
You Can Pick The Perfect Location for You
Right now, there are new homes all across the St. Louis area being constructed near modern amenities, top-rated schools and ideal travel routes. At Rolwes Company, we are building communities across the region that are known for quality and practical planning. Our network of new neighborhoods include distinct communities that are perfect for growing families. Plus, we offer the unique Your Land Our Plan® program where we will build on a plot of property you own anywhere in the metro area and beyond.
A New Home is More Energy Efficient
Modern construction techniques and insulation practices allow your builder to create a home with superior climate control features. A newly-built, energy efficient house has a near-airtight envelope that prevents the escape of warm air in the winter and cool air in the summer. This is achieved through the use of state-of-the-art windows, doors and insulation materials. This way, your furnace and air conditioner consume minimal energy to keep your house at optimal temperatures year round.
Make A New Home Your Own
Buying a new construction home lets you work with the builder during the construction process so that the property reflects your specific tastes and style preferences. During the planning phase, you can create a layout and floor plan that suits your interior design needs. Then, as the initial construction gets underway, you choose the color schemes, countertops, appliances, finishing trim and built-in features, such as bookshelves and wall sconces, that suit you best.
Save Time and Money on Costly Repairs
Another top reason to buy a new home is so that you can spend your evenings and weekends enjoying your home rather than fixing it. Older houses tend to require repairs from time to time, whereas a newly-built property contains new plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrical systems that should be operating smoothly for years to come.
Leave the Safety Concerns at The Door
There are ongoing concerns presented by owning an older property that do not exist when you buy a new house. A freshly-built property is optimized for maximum fire safety and home security. Buying a new home allows you to hard-wire security systems right away, giving you peace of mind whether you’re away for the weekend or at home sleeping soundly.
