Are New Construction Homes a Good Investment?

If you’re in the market for a new home, it can be a major dilemma, whether or not you decide to purchase a newly-constructed home or one that’s built several years or even decades, before. While you want to pick a home that’s attractive to you and that meets your family’s needs, it’s also important to pick a home that will hold its value and even earn money for you when it comes time to sell. While you may think that you’ve found your forever home, the average family ends up moving after about six years. It’s wise to plan for that eventuality when you purchase your home.

Why New Construction Homes are a Good Investment

1. There are no flaws or maintenance issues.

When you buy a new home, you know that everything in the home is brand new. When purchasing a new house, you don’t have to be concerned that the previous owner may have neglected maintenance and caused issues that aren’t readily apparent upon the first inspection. When you go to sell your home, you can assure potential buyers that there were no issues when you moved in the home and show them your maintenance records.

2. You’ll have fewer maintenance issues.

Since everything is brand new, you’ll also have fewer maintenance issues going forward. With a new construction home, you can start enjoying your new home immediately and not have to wait for renovations or repairs to be completed.

3. Appliances are included.

With most new construction homes, you are buying new kitchen appliances with your home. While some existing homes may also include appliances, with a new home, you can be assured that your refrigerator, dishwasher, and stove have never been used by another family and won’t have to be replaced anytime soon. In most cases, your appliances will also come with factory warranties.

4. Your home comes with a warranty.

Virtually all new home builders, including Grand Homes, offer a builder’s warranty with your new home. This warranty commonly covers a variety of things that might go wrong with your home for a period of ten years. Plus, this warranty is transferable to the new owner if you sell your home before then ten years have elapsed, a good selling point.
