Benefits of Buying a New Construction Home

buying a new construction home

When it comes to your custom home, the details matter and we understand how important it is to live in a home that feels like it was built entirely for you. One of the biggest perks that comes with building a new home is design and styling the home with unique elements that give it a personal touch but that is not all. New construction homes offer more benefits than ever before, making them a strong contender in any home search. Depending on what’s important to you, you may find that the benefits of buying a new construction home outweigh the advantages of a pre-owned alternative.

Designed to Fit Your Style


Buying a new construction home gives you a clean slate. No more settling for the green shag carpet, rooms covered in decades old wallpaper or pastel colored bathrooms you’ll have to change as soon as you move in. Working with a new home builder gives you the opportunity to put your touch on your home without having to lift a finger. Our curated Design Studio gives you the opportunity to handle each product, swap out textures, colors, flooring, and truly build a home that meets your lifestyle needs. From kitchen cabinets to living room light fixtures, it’s all about creating the perfect salvation for your life.

Move-In Ready Convenience


Whether you’re on a tight schedule, have no desire to renovate or used your entire budget to purchase the home, new construction homes are a great option for home buyers who want to move in worry-free with only their suitcases. With a new construction home, you can trust everything is updated, your plumbing will work properly and you won’t have any roof or foundation problems that must be fixed before you can move into the home. You also don’t have to worry about missing or dated appliances, as new construction homes often come with state-of-the art appliances already installed. Each Visionary Home comes equipped with a Smart Home Package.

Energy Efficient


Modern construction and the integration of advanced technologies comes with the added benefit of energy efficiency. New construction homes are built with the latest advances in construction materials and building practices, which can give new homeowners the benefit of reduced monthly utility bills. Many new construction homes are certified by an independent, third-party home energy rater, which requires the home meet certain energy standards and requirements. This means the home will include insulated walls and ceilings, helping to reduce heat loss during winter and keeping your home cool during summer. Many new homes also include high efficiency central air conditioning, further reducing utility usage. Does having a green home matter to you? Ask about the Visionary Energy Program!

Minimal Maintenance

There is a significant financial benefit that comes with new construction homes: minimal maintenance and low maintenance costs. With modern plumbing, appliances, heating and air, a new construction home can leave you worry-free for several years. Built in accordance with the latest building codes and safety regulations, new construction homes are engineered to require less care and maintenance. With less to worry about and fewer unexpected out-of-pocket expenses after move-in, you can spend time enjoying your new home and exploring your new community rather than making repairs and updates to an existing home.

Choice of Modern Floor Plans

Unless it has previously been remodeled, pre-owned homes can be dark and boxy, often leading you through a maze of tiny rooms that have you seeing dollar signs for each wall you’ll want to tear down. In contrast, a new construction home is a bright and welcoming experience from the moment you walk in the front door. Often with a spacious, wide open floor plan, many new homes boast tall ceilings, choice between single or two story, plus the optional basement and outdoor patios. New construction homes are thoughtfully designed for the way people need and want to live. An open eat-in kitchen with an oversized island creates the optimal place to gather with friends and family, and bedrooms and bathrooms are strategically placed to keep every family member or guest happy.

Home Warranty Commitment

Similar to purchasing a new car, a new construction home along with everything in it often comes with a warranty. This allows homebuyers to buy with confidence knowing the builder will cover the cost of any issues during the warranty period, such as a broken water heater or leaking windows. This is unlike a pre-owned home where you may not know about hidden defects or problems until after you’ve purchased the home and you’re left with the bill. A home warranty commitment gives you one less thing to worry about during the home-buying process.

A Community for Everyone


When you purchase a new construction home, you get more than just a house; many offer resort-style communities with fantastic amenities right out your front door. This is one of the major advantages over purchasing pre-owned, you cannot move the house into a different community! Along with the added bonus of an expertly crafted neighborhood, many communities come with a social calendar and a fully equipped gym. Some communities also offer resort-style amenities, such as:

  • Swimming pools
  • Clubhouses
  • Walking trails
  • Tennis and pickleball courts

Whether you’re 55+ and looking for an active lifestyle, a growing family in search of more space or looking to purchase your first home, new construction communities have something to offer for everyone.
