Why You Should Buy New Construction Instead of A Resale Home

It’s a common predicament for many prospective homeowners: buying new construction vs. resale. Buying an existing home may seem like it has some obvious perks but often it can end up being more costly and requiring more sacrifices from your wish list. Here are a few reasons why new homes are well worth the investment, especially right now:

How Low Can They Go?

At below 3%, 30-year mortgage rates have hit their lowest point in decades. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, looking to upgrade or ready to downsize, this is the perfect opportunity to buy a brand new home! Enjoy the advantages of a lower monthly payment while living in a home that’s exactly the way you want it instead of dumping money into major renovations.

Don’t Compromise, Personalize!

With a new construction home, you are able to build the home of your dreams the way you want it. Choose your homesite, floor plan, elevation, flooring, cabinets and countertops, fixtures and so much more.  Imagine moving into your home and not having to change a single thing because it’s already perfect for you! And if you decide to sell, all those brand new features you chose will add to the resale value of your home.

You Always Win With A Warranty

When you buy a “used” home, there is always a risk of unexpected issues. After an inspection, you may be able to negotiate with the seller to make certain repairs or modifications but any new surprises that pop up after closing day will be yours alone to manage. New construction homes come with a warranty to help ease those concerns. Every Minto homebuyer knows they can rest easy with our two-year material and workmanship warranty and ten-year structural warranty.  Plus our MasterCare specialists will visit you in your home multiple times over the first year of ownership to provide maintenance tips and ensure everything is working properly.
