New Homes Vs Used Homes
Whether you are a first time buyer, upgrading or purchasing yet another investment property… choosing the right place for you is never a decision made lightly.
There is an abundance of considerations that come into play for home buyers and with the magnitude of time spent in one’s home, you want to be sure you’re making the right decision!
There is a growing trend toward home owners opting toward new homes as opposed to the ‘fixer-up’ or the ‘reduced divorce property.’
Perhaps this could be due to new home owners wanting to avoid any bad juju? Or more likely due to the many benefits that come with a brand new home!
Prime Building Project’s 1-5 reasons home buyers want new homes rather than used (or preloved) homes. Read on if you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to deciding between new Vs used home ownership.
1. My home my way
AKA; ultimate customisation. Starting from scratch offers home buyers the opportunity to create their dream home! From the interior paint job to the alfresco outdoor area. You can choose your tiling, floorboards, window frames, bedroom styling, bathrooms and well just about everything! Imagine just how personalised your new home can be when building with Prime Building Projects. Whether your vibe is 1970s, 1600s or as recent as the 00s anything is possible. We have seen pizza ovens as the kitchen’s main feature, black interior paint jobs, insane rooftops and ultra modern security systems that just aren’t possible in used homes.
2. Brand spanking new and under warranty
While most buyers expect used homes to be the cheaper option, when it comes down to it, opting for a new home offers more value in the long run. All new installations, furnishings and electrics will come under warranty and for a decent length of time too. Rest assured that your hard earned money is well invested with a new home. Not to mention the energy efficient options that are often built in with new homes, used homes often have outdated systems in place that can cost you a pretty penny.
3. Safety first
One of the best features of new homes, is the extensively safe infrastructure, systems and overall ratings. Many used homes come with safety hazards such as false walls, asbestos or other harmful materials and outdated installments. Rest assured your new home will feature modern, state of the art facilities. That includes eco-friendly air conditioning, sustainable lighting choices and SAFE fittings.
4. The benefits of modern technology
Because who doesn’t like showing off a brand new technically savvy system at your new home? Dimmer switches, touch screen door alarms, finger-print access, surround sound systems, floor-heating and solar panels are just the beginning! Have the benefit of choosing any and every top of the line digitised living addition when building from scratch. Fancy yourself a true fortress? Two words… safe room. Bunker down in your safe room with 360 degree footage of your home and a panic button… because even if you never do use it (we hope you would never have to), you’re still going to LOVE having it.
5. Fresh beginnings
