Build Your Future With Peace of Mind
1. A home that will age well and appreciate in value – Research shows that often new homes appreciate more, as a percentage of original cost, than older homes. Builders have been forced to raise prices regularly due to increases in material costs. Even as a new home is being built, it is increasing in value, and will continue to increase as the rest of the community is being built.
2. New homes are more energy efficient – thanks to more efficient heating and cooling systems, better windows, controlled air infiltration and improved insulation.
3. New homes offer more luxury and convenience – with state-of-the-at kitchens, high-efficiency HVAC systems, luxurious bathrooms with walk-in showers and whirlpool tubs.
4. New homes have imaginative designs – with soaring ceilings, dramatic entrys, deluxe master baths, and creative use of space
5. New homes have lots of light – with innovative, strategically planned windows and skylights and a variety of spaces that make the home feel more open
6. Stronger, quieter construction – Extra bracing and framing anchors help brand new homes withstand high winds, storms and even earthquakes. Also, new building materials make roofs and floors stronger and quieter than those in older homes. New kinds of trusses for roofs and floors increase strength and allow builders to offer a much wider range of design possibilities by eliminating cost heating walls.
7. Durable, low maintenance materials – New home builders are wise to affordable, earth-friendly, low maintenance building materials that conserve natural resources without sacrificing comfort. For example, “engineered wood” – a synthetic composite lumber – uses half of the wood fiber of sawn lumber but is considered stronger than the conventional product. Other innovative materials – many of which are recycled – are also finding valuable uses in new-home construction.
8. Home Warranty – Most new homes come with warranties on workmanship and materials used. This provides the peace of mind that you will enjoy your new home for many years.
9. Healthy living environment – When it comes to health-risks, new homes offer clear advantages. Asbestos is no longer used in shingles, piping, cement board, roof tar, floor tiles, ceiling or insulation. Lead is no longer used in paint or as solder for plumbing. Formaldehyde emissions from particle-board and hardwood plywood have also been eliminated. In certain regions of the country, new radon prevention techniques are being built into new homes to prevent potential health problems.
10. Abundant storage space – Home builders realize that storage space is something their buyers crave. They’re responding with walk-in closets, built-in shelving and innovative storage areas.
11. Drier basements – Today’s builders have dramatically improved basement construction by using materials and techniques that resist cracking and by carefully designing drainage systems to help prevent leaks.
12. Fire protection and other safety measures – Builders offer the latest smoke detection systems, circuit breakers and ground fault interrupters, making new homes a safer choice for concerned families.
