Benefits in Building a New Home

1. Value

Homes in California have been trending in a steady increase in value. This appreciation can be a source of funds for retirement, consumer goods, and education. New home typically have a longer life expectancy and generally receive higher appraisals and increased resale values.

2. Size

On average, new construction homes have quite a bit more living space than houses built 10-20 years ago. More windows, larger kitchens, more bathrooms, spacious garages, and convenient closet spaces are just a few of the features available for your enjoyment.

3. Safety

Technology has come a long way resulting in better electrical wiring, new fire-resistant construction materials, and fire-resistant drywall options to name a few. Tempered glass can be utilized in patio doors and windows reducing the risk of injury in the case of an accident.

4. Sustainability

New construction homes use about half as much energy as those built prior to 1980. Energy efficiency saves you money, benefits your health, and sustains the environment. With each passing year more and more advances are being seen in regard to energy efficiency.

5. Elite Features

If a buyer can dream it, a builder can build it; home theaters, luxurious bathrooms, mud rooms, gourmet kitchens, roof decks, and much more. Walls of windows soak your skin with the warmth of the sun. High ceilings create an abundance of space. Low maintenance materials keep maintenance efforts low and your home looking fantastic.

6. Customization

Build a home that satisfies all of your desires. Personalize your home to fit your lifestyle. Choose from hundreds of floor plans, color schemes, cabinetry, and specialized materials.

7. Amenities

New construction homes usually include high end built-in appliances, more electrical outlets, central air and heating systems.

8. Home-Site Selection

You get to choose the land you build your house on. Open spaces, beaches, and walking trails are a breath of fresh air. If you prefer a private oasis or an urban flair you get to choose the perfect spot to call your own.

9. Low Maintenance Costs

New construction homes come with everything brand new meaning fewer repairs on items like siding, roofing, carpet, hardwoods, central air, appliances, and windows.

10. Individuality

There will not be another home like the one you’ve dreamed. There’s nothing like being able to enjoy your dream home and show it off to friends and family.
