Why Buy a New Home Instead of One That’s Pre-Owned?
Many homebuyers wrestle with the decision of whether to buy a new home or one that’s pre-owned. Years ago this decision was even more difficult to make because the features in new and existing homes were similar. However, new building materials, building codes and requirements and construction techniques have created financial and lifestyle advantages, making the new home purchase a far superior choice. Here’s why:
A new Grant home is more energy efficient than a home that was built even a few years ago. There have been huge advancements in building techniques, systems and materials that provide a drastic reduction in monthly energy costs from homes that were built 5 years ago – let alone 20 years ago! Even the remodeling efforts that are used to update older homes and make them more energy efficient will probably never be as effective as those that are built into a new Grant home. Grant uses energy efficient materials from nationally known brands like Honeywell and Amana.
Fresh Architectural Designs
Some pre-owned homes just look outdated. A new Grant home is designed for today’s families and their active lifestyles. With a new home, buyers can enjoy the most current advancements in technology, appliances, floor plans, and current designs in lighting, faucets, paint choices, brick, countertops and flooring.
New homes have almost no maintenance requirements for many years after they are constructed and most issues that could come up are covered by the builder’s warranty and service agreements. Homebuyers who choose to purchase pre-owned homes do not enjoy this advantage and often these simple maintenance tasks are overwhelming. Older homes are also in constant need of painting, flooring replacement, kitchen appliance replacement, plumbing and other expensive updates. With a new Grant home, you can enjoy the benefit of all new materials.
Personalization of a New Home
Choose a new Grant home and make it your own! Unlike a pre-owned home, which might have been designed for a completely different family from yours, a new Grant home allows the buyer to choose the perfect floor plan and add options that accommodate the individual needs of their family. Customized colors, finish-work and other personal touches are just some of the options available in the Grant Design Center.
You’ve probably heard the phrase: They don’t make’em like they used to. This is true. Quality homebuilders make’em BETTER than they used to! Homeowners have learned that they can enjoy the best materials, products and workmanship in a new home. Construction methods have also advanced dramatically. The builders at Grant & Company build new homes that are both environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
Grant & Company Homes are Inspected by Code Enforcement Professionals
In addition to Grant’s own quality assurance professionals, each Grant home undergoes inspections by County/ City Code Enforcement professionals to guarantee that all Grant homes meet the latest, stringent building codes.
All of these benefits make it an easy decision to choose a new Grant home!
