Top Reasons to Consider Purchasing New Housing in Southern California- Edited

When deciding on a home to purchase, you may be torn as to whether you should purchase a used house, or whether new housing would be best for you and your family. Out of the many difficult decisions potential homeowners have to make during the home buying process, deciding whether to buy new or used housing can be one of the toughest decisions these individuals have to make as there are many positive benefits to each option. However, for many people the benefits of new housing outweigh the benefits of old housing. Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should consider purchasing a new home rather than a used one.

Built to Code

One of the most stressful things homeowners encounter is purchasing a used home and then finding out that repairs and retrofits need to be performed in order to make the house safe to live in and up to modern building codes. The fact is that older homes may not have been retrofitted to modern earthquake and electrical standards. These necessary repairs can end up costing you a great deal of money. By purchasing a new home, you can rest assured knowing that your home is a safe place in which to live that has been built with all modern codes in mind. This can save you stress, time, and money in the long run.

More Square Footage

In any given price-range, new homes tend to have more space for the money than older homes. This is generally due to the fact that, until recent years, square footage was not a large concern for home buyers. This is then reflected in the smaller size of older homes. Newly constructed homes generally give you more living space than used homes do.

Modern Conveniences

When purchasing a used home, it is likely that you would not get the modern conveniences that are standard in many new construction homes. Even if the home has new appliances, it may not have been built to accommodate space for modern conveniences such as a dishwasher, a wine cooler, a master bathroom, or an in-home office. Many newly built homes include these modern conveniences in their design giving homeowners the features they want without any need for remodeling.

While some home buyers may prefer the old-world charm of a used home, for many buyers newly constructed homes provide the features and security they are looking for. Contact us to find out more about the benefits of purchasing a newly constructed home as opposed to a used home.
