ADVANTAGES OF BUILDING A NEW HOME

There are many options for buying a home in Mesa. But despite all of these resale options, consumers should not overlook the advantages of buying a new home. To help you understand more about the benefits of buying a new home, we put together a list of reasons why you should buy a new home over a resale.

FULLY CUSTOMIZED

Home builders will typically let buyers participate in the design process of their new home. This helps create a customized living space that is tailored to your liking. New home buyers can decide how big they want their bathroom to be, what type of flooring you want and even pick the exterior color of the home. If you are moving into a subdivision, you can even pick the lot you prefer the most.

GREEN HOMES

Energy efficiency standards have increased over the years making home builders and construction crews use more energy efficient materials to build your home with. This ensures that you are using less energy and minimizing your carbon footprint. All of Hughes Development homes come standard with energy saving dual pane low-emissivity windows, conditioned attic space, R-19 & R-38 batting insulation and more.

MORE DURABLE

New homes are built with quality materials that stand up to years of wear and tear better than older homes. This means you will have fewer repairs or upgrades to make once the home is built. No remodeling or renovation needed, you get this home customized to your liking without having to repair, add or subtract anything else. No more replacing carpets, painting walls or remodeling kitchens or bathrooms.

WARRANTIES

The great part about building a custom home is the fact that you get a 1 year warranty for any major repairs that might come up. For example, if your roof starts to leak or your AC stops working, the builder will repair it for free. This protect you from any defects in workmanship or materials. Hughes Development offers a 1 year warranty on all houses we build.

FIRE PREVENTION

Most newer homes are built with fire retardant insulation and almost all new construction homes are required to have hard-wired smoke detectors. These detectors will keep working even if the battery runs out.

FINANCING

Consumers who choose to buy a new home will be able to take advantage of perks related to mortgage financing. In many cases, new home builders will have their own mortgage companies they work with already, making it easier for you to find the financing you need to build the home.
