Which is Better for You: A New Home or a Resale?

When it’s time to make a move, one of the first decisions most people think about is whether to buy a brand new house or a previously-owned home. Here are some distinct advantages of each choice:


New house:


  • Modern floor plans that could include a “great room,” bigger closets, more baths,

entertainment room, etc.

  • The opportunity to choose upgrades and customize floor coverings, colors and more
  • More energy-efficient insulation, windows and heating/cooling systems
  • The added protection of a warranty from the home builder


Resale home:


  • Existing features, including window treatments and mature landscaping
  • Location -- existing homes are often closer to metropolitan areas instead of farther out in the suburbs
  • Established neighborhoods and sense of community
  • The opportunity to use an existing home as a base to remodel and create a unique property


Only you can decide if a brand new home or one with a few years on it is right for you. If you would like additional information on which option might work best for you, don’t hesitate to reply to this email or call me with any questions.
