Considering Building a NEW HOME instead of purchasing an existing home? I sat down and talked with Donna Thurman at CONSORT homes at Fienup Farms in Chesterfield and here are some of the wonderful benefits that she pointed out.
When building your new home, you choose the layout and personalize it!
Your new home will have the latest floor plan designs to accommodate how you plan to use your home. Our sales team will work closely with buyers to ensure the plan they choose will be used and loved for years to come. Plans of today include open floor plans, main floor laundry rooms, drop zones and ample closet space. These features are hard to find in older homes and may spur the desire to do major renovating. By personalizing your home, you save time, money and energy making updates such as changing out fixtures, repainting, bringing the kitchen into this century or replacing old carpet or dated flooring.
When building your new home, EVERYTHING is new!
Your new home will be shiny and new from the freshly poured foundation to the operating systems. This is a huge cost savings to a new buyer since having to do fix-it work is unnecessary. Brand new operating systems such as HVAC and plumbing usually do not require much maintenance until many years down the road. Today’s lifestyles also require enhanced electrical systems to support everything from the microwave to our computers. Older homes may not have the capacity to handle all our modern conveniences. Plus, all your new systems will meet or exceed the current building codes therefore, there is no worry about passing inspections or needing repairs to be completed before closing to ensure the home’s safety.
When building your new home, you will save time and money!
Your new home will free up time that might have been spent working on remodels, repairs and renovations. Plus, your new home will be much more energy efficient saving dollars that would be spent on costly utilities. At Consort, we take pride in offering EnergyStar® Low-E windows and exterior doors, Tyvek® house wrap and sealing products, water efficient plumbing fixtures, R-38 insulation in the attic and 93% high efficient gas furnace and 13 SEER AC units in all our homes ensuring energy efficiency to save buyers money.
While building a new home may be slightly higher than purchasing an existing home, NEW can save you thousands of dollars for years to come through peace of mind, time, comfort, and energy savings!
