BUILDING A NEW HOME

*Despite a likely higher price tag, a home builder will say that you’re buying a better product when you buy new

*Builders typically stand by their craftsmanship through warranties

*Home designed for the way Americans live today, maximizing the usability of space and offering amenities that speak to modern wants and needs

*Today’s homebuilders are offering the latest in popular choices at up-to-the-minute design centers that allow consumers to choose from hardwood flooring to cabinetry, fixtures to lighting – and everything in between

*A new home is an opportunity to customize the home to your preferences. It isn’t just the choice of room colors or furniture placement either. With a new home, you can often have a decision in fixed features such as the floor plan, construction materials and even the placement of the house

*Custom features that would cost far more if they were added after the fact. Consider the cost of such finished spaces as game rooms or media rooms, or such extras as fireplaces and built-in microwave ovens

*Headaches and cost that come with the maintenance on an older home don’t exist yet – and won’t for a while. No initial worry about upkeep and repair or deferred maintenance

*A better Investment. New homes have a greater value 10, 15 or 30 years from now than an existing home

*No need to remodel. Anything that is an existing home has to be in worse shape. There’s a saying that when you buy a pre-owned home, you’re buying someone else’s vision of a home

*Some people covet new homes simply for their “newness” and the emotional appeal of being the original owner

*Planned communities where buyer’s can buy a brand-new home with other like minded people

*New homes also use the latest in whole-house systems, like heating and air conditioning, so they’re not likely to break down, saving consumers money

*It’s appealing to people who are concerned about energy costs in the future and the longer-term efficiency of the home. New homes are more energy-efficient, which is also good for saving lots of green

*Energy features will be worth more down the road. Buyers would choose an energy-efficient home with lower energy bills over a home that was less expensive and did not have extra energy-efficiency features

*Consider after tax credit mortgage interest and real estate taxes can be deductible on income tax returns, and there are more choices than ever when it comes to financing options

*Designing a home offers the perfect opportunity to use less and create much more for your family and the environment and to “Go Green”

*With a geothermal heat pump, you can tap the clean, renewable heat beneath your feet. Read more: http://www.thedailygreen.com/green-homes/latest/geothermal-cost-payback-0911#ixzz1l9nqQVqk

*Government helps with cost of GeoThermal installation in the form of an income tax credit worth 30% of the total cost of a new geothermal system, including parts and labor. The credit currently expires at the end of 2016
