New construction homes have quickly become a real estate favorite, and it's little wonder why so many Austinites are interested in the opportunity! Here are 5 awesome perks of buying a new home in Austin, TX.
5. The Latest Innovations
The best builders are constantly innovating. When you work with an expert builder on a brand new home, you reap decades of collective real estate knowledge. New houses boast the latest materials and construction styles, as well as technology. Think energy efficient heating systems, touch taps, home automation systems and hidden dishwashers. While features always vary, a new house is your best bet to be on the cutting edge of home innovation.
4. Manufacturer Warranties
With new fixtures and appliances come manufacturer warranties! This means you can rest easy knowing that everything will work. If it doesn't, there's a good chance you'll be able to get it replaced, free of charge.
3. Stronger Community Layouts
New home communities are often better planned with superior layouts, and may incorporate schools, parks and other well-loved community amenities right into your neighborhood. Urban planning has made significant strides over the past few decades and your new home takes full advantage of that.
2. Enhanced Customization
Depending on when you and your builder connect, there may be the opportunity to customize your new home. Builders will generally have several floor plans, colour schemes, enhancement sets and fixture options that help each home create its own identity. When you work with a builder, you get a say in which options are right for you.
1. Sentimental Value
There's just something fitting about a fresh start in a new home. A new home is all yours, and you get to be the one to build memories and share experiences first. You'll be the first one to cook a meal, use the bathtub, curl up in front of the fireplace, throw a dinner party for friends, bring home a four-legged friend and otherwise create your masterpiece life with your own family.
