Advantages of Buying New and Custom-Built Homes

by Sam Brannan, Trulia

 

If you’re looking for the perfect home, you can always test your luck with the Bellevue real estate market, or consider the JayMarc custom home alternative. Choosing a new and custom home builder allows your dream home to come to you with some major advantages over buying older and existing homes. The majority of homes currently on the market are previously-owned which often come with time-consuming challenges such as repair, maintenance, and remodeling. Given these considerations, a new home may provide a more fulfilling home buying experience. Newly-constructed homes offer personalization and low-maintenance can make a significant difference in free time, energy bills and overall quality of life.

Customization

Sometimes new can mean recently made homes that have already seen a previous owner, but newly built homes made for the first time can be customized to fit your family. Buying a new home is a big investment — just like buying a car, you wouldn’t want to buy a two-seater for a family of four, so consider working with JayMarc to build a custom home personalized to fit your family. Many new home builders offer personalization of structural and design features. Personalized structural options frequently include cabinets, countertops, appliances and more for new homes.

Energy efficient

Buying homes with energy efficient features can be good for your wallet. New homes are built with improved insulation techniques, and tight construction which retains heat and cool air. With constantly evolving construction techniques, newly-built homes offer the latest and greatest heating and cooling systems, so you won’t need to worry about running your air conditioning for hours to stay cool. Newly-constructed homes also come with eco-friendly appliances, and water-conserving plumbing fixtures which will save you on monthly utility bills.

Less maintenance

How many times have you wanted to spend your free time playing your with kids but had to fix the broken sink? Older homes can have hidden costs in repairs and updates that are sometimes missed in the inspection. A new home, like buying a new car, comes with a peace of mind without the stress of constant maintenance — plus, you can finally get around to going for a family hike, or a day at the beach.

Financial advantage

New homes more often than not provide a warranty. These warranties can replace certain elements of a home like windows, heating and air conditioning systems, and ventilation if necessary. Another benefit along with a warranty includes the option to finance your personalized upgrades and a mortgage amount in the original purchase price. With older or existing homes, you’re on your own in obtaining a mortgage, and renovations will come out of your pocket.

 

Beneficial for your family

The Seattle real estate market is becoming more and more competitive. Making offers, and looking at several homes is never an easy process, and can bring unwanted stress into your life. Working with JayMarc will let you see the home-building process from start to finish, and saves the stress of house-hunting. Once your home is ready, the move in will be easy, without any immediate repairs or renovations. The more time you have with your family and your significant other, the happier you will be.

 

Are you looking to build on your lot in Bellevue, Mercer Island, Seattle, or Kirkland? JayMarc’s custom homes program would be a perfect fit to help make your dream home become a reality. Call 425.615.6203 or email brenda@jaymarchomes.com.
