Are you in the market for a new home? Don't overlook the option of buying a newly constructed property. While it's common to assume that buying a previously owned home is your only choice, the benefits of new construction are worth considering. Not only can it provide unique advantages that aren't available in used homes, and it can also be much more cost-effective.
At Covington Homes, we specialize in building new construction housing that delivers exceptional value to our customers. We take pride in using high-quality craftsmanship and materials in every home we build, ensuring that our customers receive the best possible product. Whether you're a first-time buyer or a seasoned homeowner, understanding the benefits of buying a newly constructed home is crucial. Join us as we explore the many benefits that new construction housing can offer.
A Home Personalized to your Style
When you are ready to start looking at buying a home, you should prepare yourself to decide what challenges you can deal with in a resale/used home. Some issues can be tolerated, while others have to be fixed. Part of choosing a house is deciding if you can afford to turn it into your dream home or if it's close enough to what you want.
But what if you didn't have to walk into your new home with one eye on what you want to fix? Personalized homes are more accessible than ever, and you will find that they make more financial sense than you realize.
If you move into a previously constructed home with dreams of fixing it up, you may find that the renovations are time-consuming and expensive, and they often turn out to be more complex than homeowners expect.
But a personalized new home eliminates those stressors and expenses. From the first day, the home is adapted to your needs instead of you trying to fit your family into someone else's dream home. With new construction, you are the first person to live in a house that was literally built for you.
Make the Community Your Own
In a new development, all of your neighbors are also new to the area. This provides a unique opportunity for you to create a shared sense of community in your new neighborhood.
When you move into an established development, fitting into the existing social network can be a struggle. However, when everyone is also new to the area, all you have to do is reach out to your neighbors. After all, they're all in the same position as you. It's an excellent chance to make lasting connections with the people around you.
Less Maintenance and Increased Energy Efficiency
One of the biggest up-front savings is how much less you'll have to spend on maintenance and energy costs. New construction won't have the issues you might find in a pre-owned home. The appliances are all brand new, as well as other potentially expensive parts that could need repairs, such as the roof or plumbing. You have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that every part of your home is new.
Speaking of new appliances, your home's energy efficiency will be at the very highest standards. New homes are constructed to meet the latest requirements as the building codes are updated to improve efficiency standards. But existing homes aren't retrofitted because it would be too expensive and disruptive.
When you buy a newly constructed house, you're getting the most updated efficiency standards, so your home's energy needs are as low as possible without sacrificing comfort.
At Covington Homes, we're proud to say that our houses are built to exceed the code for energy efficiency. Each home is third-party tested to ensure its performance is up to our standards. We give each house a Home Energy Rating Score (HERS). To ensure the best HERS, we use advanced framing techniques, upgraded insulation, over 95% efficient furnaces, and more.
With all of these features standard, you don't have to retrofit your home to get the energy savings you want.
