Five Reasons to Buy A New Home

Your home is the largest purchase you’ll ever make and deciding between a resale home and a new build can be difficult. Here are five reasons why people choose to build a new home rather than purchase resale:

Buy a New Home in OntarioNew Home Smell – like a new car, having that fresh feeling in your home can’t be beat. Knowing that everything in your home is brand-spanking new and never been used can be a real comfort to some people. Also, a new home can be a new beginning – a just-married couple thinking about starting a family, empty-nesters looking for a place that suits their new lifestyle. A resale home reflects another family’s dreams; enjoy a clean slate and make new memories for your family in a new home.

Replacement Costs – with a new home, everything is new: new roof, new windows, new flooring, new furnace, the list goes on. With a resale home, the equipment and materials have been installed for a time and are closer to needing replacement (in some cases, these replacement costs can be substantial). Need another perk to building a new home to convince you? In Ontario, if there IS a problem with your new home, the Tarion Warranty program protects you.

Latest Technology – a new home will have more efficient heating and cooling systems, insulation, and other building materials when compared to an older home thanks to the ever-improving Ontario Building Code. The recent increase in Code standards for energy efficient homes also lead to utility savings; new homes aren’t nearly as drafty as older homes and also have better air quality.

Choose Your Floorplan – love a home with an open-concept main floor? need a large formal dining room for your great-grandmother’s table? With a new home you choose the layout that best suits your family’s needs. We have MANY different floorplans to choose from – some of our plans even have multiple options (second ensuites – perfect for an in-law suite, additional bedrooms, etc.) to ensure that you find a plan perfect for you. Your Dream Home

Your Interior Selections – maybe you’d fall in love with the parquet flooring and pink bathtub in a resale home, but wouldn’t it be great to choose finishings that reflect YOUR tastes rather than the previous occupants’? With a new build home, you can choose your finishes – from the kitchen cabinets and flooring to the backsplash and paint color!
